And a price tag of 325....so ae included more stuff and charged you for it all.....not hating, I think they could have done better on the shocks. ditch all the extra tuning parts and include the machined pistons and v2 shafts.
I think the new car is aimed at customers looking to switch over to the B5M platform after all of its recent success at Nationals and Worlds. It comes with all the upgrades and tuning options everyone would normally buy. While everyone argues you need nothing more than a box stock Team B5M, you REALLY do not need anything more with this new kit. I don't think its for existing owners (like us) as we have all those goodies already. More for people looking to switch to the brand.

Yeah i know. I think new owners would rather have machined pistons, v2 shafts and xrings over both gear boxes, slippers and front arms.

It is sort of ho-hum but actually you're getting a ton of stuff for $40 or $50 more. Not bad but not a game changer or anything AE should be bragging about.

After a couple of months of kicking tires, I guess this new car has my mind made up. Yep I'm getting one! With all the goodies its a good investment! Plus side I still have my crate of buggy tires!

It would have been more impressive if Associated released a new 4wd car today.

I was wondering last few months too as I wanted a metric hardware car, but maybe I don't care to see one too soon as I never thought one is coming out for at least 6 months from now.

So I bought a brand new B44.3 at Tower and the Schelle chassis to shorten it and make it really work well. The Tower price was effectively $238 after discount and all the gift certificates with ecash and the $20 promo one with the car.

CE edition, nice update but give us the entire bad to the bone shock package instead of doubling up our inventory of diffs and slippers.

I hate seeing 2wd kits for over 300 dollars.

I'm looking to buy a stock 17.5 buggy soon, and it actually seems like a better idea to buy the factory lite and spend the extra $50 on Kashima shocks than it would be to buy the CE and spend another $58 on the lightweight chassis.
