Looks like the Savvy bomber says "Discontinued online" as of this morning. What a fiasco this is...


I did try to order a Ryft as soon as Amain emailed me last week saying my order would be cancelled. Gonna be pretty ticked if they keep *****footin around and I miss out on that deal too...My order status is still pending. Friday makes 1 week since I placed the order.


And right now, The Ryft kit is still in stock at RPPHobby


From my perspective, Amain is seriously dropping the ball here. How this plays out may just determine if I will every buy from them again...

Yeah, thatís unfortunate. I ordered some styrene about a week ago and itís still pending as well. My guess would be they have way more shipments going out then they thought and everythingís behind.

Amain has always been really good to me and shipped out the next day, sometimes even the same day if ordered in the morning. IMO, Iíd give them another chance after all these sales end up going away(if they ever do!)

Thats the problem. I can't take part in any of the sales. Im fine with waiting for a backorder for weeks if it means I got a good deal. But cancelling my order, then telling me its back in stock after the sale ends, that's a little dirty

Yeah I see that now. They had taken away the ad to cart button before but you could still click the coupon code and it would add to cart for backorder.

But its gone for sure now.

It still says add to cart for me for the Ryft.

I was on a chat session with AMAIN, they assured me this order would not be cancelled (The Ryft Kit). Any issues they are having are due to Horizon not providing accurate inventory updates. I did request that if they plan to cancel the order to let me know now so I can buy the kit from RPP Hobby. They again confirmed I should see a shipment notification in the coming days.

I checked again, you can add the Ryft to cart, but the coupon code does not work....

Why do I get the feeling that this order will be cancelled as well and I will miss out on the sale...

Even though the Axial kit is 100 bucks cheaper because itís on sale, I still think the Element is a better value. Stealth transmission is better on a couple levels(OD options built in and the quieter and smoother 48 pitch gears), quality of the Element links are better(in my opinion) and the obvious quality difference of the shocks. A guy ends still ends up spending more building up an RBK.

Ive been very happy with my Gatekeeper. It gets beat on as much as my scx10.2.

Only advantage of getting the Axial builders kit I could see is spare parts to rob or have the ability to share between rigs

The axles on the Element are a little larger though. The shocks are superb

I considered picking up a gatekeeper a few months ago when they were on sale, after I sold my yeti. I decided it would basically be a smaller, less capable bomber so I skipped it.

This sounds a bit more like a way of talking yourself out of spending money

You're not wrong. I couldn't make up my mind what I wanted to buy so I just didn't buy anything and turned my injora cage crawler into a bouncer instead. Lol

I got tracking info a couple days ago on my wraith order. Should be here Saturday.

Is there a reason guys aren't ordering direct from horizon? I got free shipping, and there's less chance a fulfillment issue would occur buying direct. Do the other shops not charge you guys tax or something?

Rpphobby doesn't charge tax so for me as long as I have over 99 bucks in an order for free shipping thats my go too.

I have heard that horizon service sucks from a couple of people so personally I order from other sources.

Well that sucks. As mentioned above, maybe you can beat them to the punch, cancel your Amain order and place an order instead through Horizon or RPP. RPP is super legit. I'd bet if this happened to you through them, they'd eat the cost and still sell you the truck at sale price.

I just got my LMT yesterday morning, my younger sons slept with it last night. If the stock is there, they're definitely shipping stuff.

Also, Fox2go's experience should serve as a warning when ordering from these sales: wait until your truck arrives before you start ordering parts or upgrades for it. It'd be lame to buy $150 worth of parts for a truck that isn't going to show up.

I was assured my order would be fulfilled, because of that Im going to wait and see what happens. If it is not then I will be following up with Amain.

The first time with the Bomber sure I can let that slide. It is still possible that the Bomber is discontinued. It is an older rig after all and for an RTR to drop over %50 of its price...

The Ryft on the other hand is still relatively new. Unless they are discontinuing the kits because no one likes kits right, I mean thats why the bomber kit was supposedly discontinued

I just spoke to my brother, if I order from RPP and somehow Amain fulfills the order, he would pay me back for the second Ryft kit

I typically order through amain because I get 2 points for every dollar spent. Every 250 points gets me $5 off future purchases.

Iíve had nothing but good experiences with amain, rpp and horizon direct.

I have never had an issue before. I understand that this is ultimately the fault of Horizon. Horizon is not updating retailers about lack of inventory and/or no more future inventory. Which is likely why Amain kept the ability to purchase more Bombers. However, Amain is not totally error free. At least for me when they emailed about the Bomber back in stock (probably the last shipment which I should have had my original order fufilled) and allowed it to be purchased (albeit likely cancelled as well for many if so). Hopefully they are able to get their inventory management system updated or something to prevent this from happening in the future.

Note that I am not bitter or angry over the situation, just mildly irritated and/or annoyed. This wont prevent me from ordering from Amain ever again but it will make me reconsider using them for a big sale in the future should my Ryft order get cancelled.

Who knows, maybe its just me and my name is flagged or something at Amain. Hahaha

+1 here for Amain.


There's another 2 days flash sale going on. Boats, Stadium truck, radios. SMT10 RTR for $220... think I would have gone this route instead of the SMT kit for $110 considering cost of tires and a body.
