Default I got one today... Now the bad news

I was gonna wait and hear the reports, but a call to the LHS today revealed they had 2. I hop in the car and pick one up for $386 out the door (ultimate hobbies). After the 45min drive home I thumb though the manual while the battery charges......... Charged........ I fire it up and check throttle and steering, all good. After setting it down I rip around the yard and am happy with the speed so I try to shift into low......nothing. Turns out mine had a bad shift servo. So I call the LHS and have to wait till I can drive back up there tomorrow to switch out chassis with their display. So in order to return it all I can do is look at it for now. UUUHHHGGGG.
Not to rip on it at all. I am sure mine is the exception. I really am happy with it, just got one that slipped past QC. I say this because the build quality is excellent. The plastic feels top notch. Other than the tires wobbling in their beadlocks, like a 10 year old assembled them, the fit and finish is top notch. Not sure what my build plans are at this point, but I will definitely keep it in the stable.

That blows. I just picked up the last one from Ultimate Hobbies but haven't taken it outside for a run. Just ran it around my living room. If it doesn't ran I'll take it to the Oakley track tomorrow.

Ultimate Hobbies had them for $359 +CA tax. They always sell below MSRP but dont advertise, And I think they have free shipping. They are probably getting more Tuesday.

it says $14.95 shipping fedex ground. total is $403 after CA tax, which is till $33 cheaper than hobbytown near me =/
damn, i guess for me i might as well just get mine from hobby town cause i drove there last night to pay for it in full, which cost like $12 gas, and if i wanted a refund it would cost me another $12 gas :o oh well. that is a really good deal tho for anybody else buying

Damn! I called Ultimate Hobbies today to see if I could go grab one and they said they wouldn't have them for a week or so. I ended up ordering one on Ebay for $430 or so shipped and have to wait. Bummer!
