LOL yea I'll take 2 LOFLOL. Ernest I wish you and Mike had all your ducks in a row when Mike first posted the video. I still can't believe what happened . Will there ever be a true Original Hydrofoam released? I hope so. I will buy 2 of those and I think allot of others would too.

Best wishes

Hey, I have a shock flyer I will sell for $389.00. It comes WITH Decals and I will throw in the carbon fiber!

I think this guy has something mixed up with his price. $250.00 is just not reasonable.

So, what is the actual price in US Dollars?

I am young, and do not have a lot of money. Would you accept my first born son as payment?

This is what happens when young kids realize you can sell stuff online.
Or when you sit in the garage with the car running for too long.

What a deal I wonder how many "suckers" have bought from him.I thought $250 was way to much.

I have a bundle of magic blue foam that I will let go for the bargain price of only $199.95.Due to the large number of orders it may take a month or so to ship. LOL

Marketing Campaign Alert!!!!

I believe we were the unwitting victims of a verrrrrry cleverly designed test marketing campaign!

In the marketing business, this is known as "set point analysis". You price the item at a high dollar amount and see if there are any takers. If not, you keep lowering the price until you reach a point (the set point) that the consumer (that's you and me) is willing to purchase the item.

The big question is this: was this the initial offering? Is this a lower price? Will it go lower? Will MrJay try this marketing scheme over at RC Universe?

Clever people, those Swiss, eh?
