Does Besttrack ever have sales?

Post by JSG » Thu Mar 06, 2014 12:53 pm

My pack is probably going to purchase a new besttrack at some point before next year's derby. Does anyone know if besttrack ever has "sales" or free shipping at some point in the off season.

Thanks

Not that I'm aware of. From my understanding, their derby track business is part of a larger manufacturing business.

Not that I've ever seen.

I do know that I got a 10% discount on my timer purchase (not a champ timer) for purchasing during the summer "off season" at one of the timer vendors (don't recall which one). I asked bestrack if they would offer such a thing and they said no. I guess they have a good enough product and enough demand for it that they don't need to offer pricing incentives.

I've see Microwizard do the 10% off during the off season, but I haven't seen BestTrack do any discounting.

Thanks guys! I may look into the micro wizard timer as opposed to the champ in order to save the pack some money.

Microwizard does offer their timers in kit form. So, you can save some money if you don't mind doing some assembly. The assembly is not hard. Its drilling some holes, screwing everything together and applying decals.
