To limit amount requests to HD it does not update stock information automaticaly, but shows cached numbers. You can refresh by clicking on the last cell of the row where it's shown how long ago it was updated. This can be done only if it was longer then 10 min. ago.
Unfortunately I couldn't figure out how to get actual in-store price and it only shows what's seen on the web, which is not always accurate, especialy for yellow tags.
Instead of SKU you can also use UPC from the barcode or receipt.

I checked 4 different stores over 3 days and none hd any. Alot of stores said they had 1/2 but they never actually have them. Was really hoping to score one bc i think my 2 y/o would have gotten a kick outta it all well.

Still thanks to OP

picked one up. was tagged $68, but rang up $40. HOWEVER, turns out to be a complete piece of crap! it has a "feature" that turns off the motor completely if it detects a strong impact (eg hitting a wall) and requires a shut-off/shut-on to re-enable it. problem is, it's completely mis-calibrated. a sudden start or stop without hitting anything triggers the stupid thing. useless. couldn't even get it off the driveway because it kept shutting down.... planning to bring it back.

waste of money!

My experience might shed some light. I tried to use different batteries with the RC truck. Using both the P104 Lithium and P100 NiCd 18v One plus batteries made the truck work for about 30 seconds at the most without hitting any obstruction. Using the slimmer P103 battery, everything worked fine.

I think the speed on hobby toys is a ratio in comparison to its size, not real-life speed. So 100 for the toy might be 20 in real speed.
c'mon get happy!

Thanks for the insight. Mine won't even run for 2 seconds on a fresh charge if I "floor it." However, it seems to run fine at slower speed for as long as I can maintain it, as it's really easy to push the stick too far and floor it again.

Anyways, wife threw out the packaging, so I'm not going to bother trying to return it. Tempted to try another battery, but that just another $75 min...
yo!
