    I've noticed a few on eBay but I'd rather go with someone I can trust when dealing with this much money - go with DDM.

    Watch ebay there is a hobby house that sells them for under $860 shipped. Got mine there and found them to be very nice folks and good communication.

    If your going to get one, better do it now. They will be in short supply for a few months.

    $868 shipped from the Hobby Superstore. You can find them on Ebay or you can call on the phone. I have dealt with Charlie and Nikki and both are pleasant to deal with, they ship the same day, they offer the LOWEST price anywhere. As far as buying from a reputable shop, who cares if you still need to deal with HPI direct regarding warrantee issues. When DDM sold paddle tires with 2 of the same side in one bag, they sent customers to HPI so what does it matter where you buy? $860 shipped is more than $20 cheaper. Spend the money you save at DDM. ;)

    I sure am. The guys I know have purchased 5 from them so far. Same price each time and same day shipping each time. Their Ebay listing still only ends up $10 more. Still the cheapest. My last one was from thier Ebay listing. I knew I would not have time to call on Monday morning, so I did the "buy it now" on Saturday and they shipped Monday. When spending almost $900, I am not worried about an extra $10. I just wish Ebay would not get that extra money, but the seller instead. ;)

    We spnd all of our saved money at DDM. LOL

    I called today and the best price HobbySuperStore can offer is the Ebay offer of $835.00 plus shipping. This is a great deal the best price I could get the LHS too was $950.00. HSS say's that they can offer that because of them moving so many out there door. They also say they sell the most Baja's. They have boxes of them that they are selling right now and do say it will be soon that they will be hard to come by.:) I bet $868 was due to where (you) it was being shipped too.;)

    Still the best price I can find......
