Happy New Year!

It's certainly been a busy year for us all. I want to sincerely thank you all for your continued support and business throughout the year of 2010. While the numbers have not yet been crunched, it seems it was the best year we've had in a long time, and I know we have our loyal customers to thank for that.

I'm looking forward to the new year, and I hope that your experience with our store, and the hobbies you're in, get better and better as time marches forward.

If you'd like to read my reflections of the past year, head over to our blog. The link is on the left side of your screen, or you can click here.

Thank you once again for your business. It is truly appreciated.

See you next year!

Stampede 4x4 Arrives; More Trickling In

We brought it to you first from iHobby. Now you can bring it home. The new Traxxas Stampede 4x4 VXL has arrived. Our first one came in and sold yesterday, but we have another one in today, and more waiting to be shipped. Availability doesn't look promising as we get closer to Christmas, so if you want one, seize the day and pick one up soon.

Hopefully we'll have one out on display so everyone can take an up close and personal look at the newest addition to Traxxas' fleet of cars and trucks. Stop in and check it out today!

NASCAR Drivers Go for a Spin in a Traxxas Spartan

Those who don't follow NASCAR racing might not know that Traxxas had a three-race deal to sponsor Kyle Busch in the Camping World Truck Series (Kyle won all three races with Traxxas on the hood too). So Traxxas set up a race for some big names in the racing world.

Participants include Kyle and Kurt Busch, Kasey Kahne, David Ragen, Bobby Labonte, and many more. But there was a catch to this race - they had to use Traxxas' new Spartan, a large electric powered boat. Fun and laughs ensue.

Catch the video after the break, and pass it along to your favorite NASCAR enthusiast.

Product Page Overhaul

I've been working long hours and late nights for the last few weeks, all for you fine folks. We're starting to overhaul the product pages and make it simpler to browse. For instance, it has been hard to determine which of the products we list are items we stock regularly. Now, you can quickly see which products we regularly stock thanks to the icon present on the right side of the page. Most of the products also include a pop-up video for the item, as well as a review link (if we have written one about it).

These pages are simply for product information and pricing. We've determined that we will not be entering the online e-commerce world; at this point, we're too late in the game for our web presence to have any impact on the market at large. However, I would like to point out that we do accept legitimate (meaning not shopping from Hong Kong or Singapore) special orders through both our Facebook Fan Page and our e-mail addresses. This is mostly intended for individuals that are already customers; however, we will follow up on all legitimate inquiries, and look forward to providing everyone with the customer service you've come to expect from us.

At any rate, I hope the new layout of the product pages will make it easier for you to find the information you are looking for. There will be more categories up in the future. I know many people are waiting for airplanes to be put up. To you, all I can say is this: I'm working on it. The sheer number of items makes putting up the airplanes a daunting task, but I want to do it the right way instead of the quick way. So your patience is appreciated.

Batteries, chargers, fuel, R/C boats, and more will also be coming as quickly as I can get them up, with other categories to follow as time permits. Stick with us as we shape our website - it's been a ton of fun and it's only getting better!
