agreed i always like to buy the latest and greatest but for me, but i only run 2wd 10th scale in winter so by the time b5m is out it will be time for outdoor offroad so for once in my life i may exercise moderation and I will probably just wait until next year to make a move... i think haha 260 is such a good price

By next fall AE will probably have a factory team kit out that has all the aluminum & titanium bits. Everybody knows titanium & aluminum will take 3 seconds off your lap time. But it will probably be $20 more.

I know you're joking but I am the poster boy for the fact that all the hop up bits will NOT take 3 sec off of anything. If all the stuff I have on my B4.2 is saving me 3 seconds a lap then I must REALLY suck.

... thats extremely vague and generic... under what conditions with who driving? I think the c4.2 is doing pretty well... your signature would lead one to believe that you are biased against centros
haha, not biased it's just the truth. Our track is also on the low to medium side of bite so there is not alot of mid motors. It was Buddy Baker ,not sure the track he drove them at, conversation was at another track where he was racing a centro.
Take it for what it's worth, i was just relaying what i was told. And yes it is their job to sell whats new, but at the same time if all sponsored racers did was tell lies no one would believe them. I am sticking with my b4.2 for now till I see for myself

Barry runs a Centro and so does all of the AE team right now at OCRC, home of Reedy.

There is only one MM buggy to run right now. There is another for pictures. The buggy is at OCRC raceway on a daily basis. Steven Hartson, Kody Numendahl and Brent Thielke have driven it and I was alongside them.

Like Kevin said there is just the one test mule right now but from what I see of it, it is as fast or faster than the centro. I had a nice talk with Tim Tunnerman tonight and he confirmed that all these nice parts you see above will be forth coming, sooner rather than later. He also pointed out something we all take for granted, this is a ground up new car, designed around current state of the art tech, lipos, brushless, hi grip surfaces, and new tire tech.

As he said it the B4, as good as it is, was just trying to keep up.

And of course he was running an original RC10 in stock buggy tonight and keeping up.

By the By Kevin, we missed you tonight!
