The new body is called the Warrior. Pics...check out the redrc.net worlds coverage. Release date was I think mentioned in the video on redrc.net.

I have an adamantium chassis on order: 150,000 times stronger than titanium but 1/12th the weight. Custom ordered with a 50 micron diamond coating. Found it online for $26.37 with shipping next day air!

Or save all your money and run the chassis that comes with the car which is good.

If you're looking for a chassis why wouldn't you just buy an SLRC? They are made thinner with a more flexible aluminum....no fancy milling, just fancy performance.

Jconcepts is making the Factory team car we all want that AE is either not making or hasn't released yet And comparing them to Integy is down right offensive as integy is cheap junk that no self respecting racer would ever run on their car

I would not say we all want that crap. A bunch of aluminum does not make it great.

If they were pure bling parts I'd agree with you however In my personal opinion all of the parts Jason and the Jcon crew are making are performance parts that Again in my opinion would be in a factory team kit
