Doesn't look like a whole ton has changed? Looks like mostly that it's coming with a laydown tranny and a fan mount, anything else I'm missing?

Front mounted rear shocks with matching body. Funny they didnít call out adjustable height transmission like the buggy.

Iím also surprised they didnít release an SCT 4.0 first. That breaks the tradition of buggy, SC, and truck order.

The chassis is longer, and the rear tower is a lot shorter, with a shorter shock body and shock shaft. Like the 3.0 buggy with laydown to the 4.0 buggy, the 4.0 truck drives a LOT better than the 3.0 even though the geometry changes are not huge (like 2.0 to 3.0 for example).

We switched it up and went to truck since the truck benefits for a laydown transmission much more than an SC, so it was more important to have this option out to you guys sooner, in our opinion.

If i remember correctly from the FB live video about the SCT 3.0, they moved the motor farther back from where it was on the 2.0 which made the truck handle better. I don't think we will be seeing a new SCT 4.0 laydown anytime soon. But pretty cool to see the new ST!

With the laydown transmission, how will this truck handle a low bite out door track Frank?

From the 2.0 I've always run the battery longitudinally; reacted faster and smoother for me. Is this an option still for the 4.0 or is it needed with the new trans and MM being further forward.

We've got a bit of outdoor running this year with 2wd vehicles and find that laydown is better outdoors, even when the grip is low. They handle bumps better, jump and land better, and have a more natural steering balance. Due to this, you don't get the car loose to steer it as much and you just go faster by maintaining grip.

AE is really far behind now. Sucks for AE guys having to buy 2 kits and 125.00 aftermarket kit to be able to run a laydown w/ a up to date front end.

I knew it would be coming out soon and that's why I didn't buy the 3.0
