Has anyone heard if the body is going to be specific to the car, or is it the Centro body?

While I want the MM, I've heard it won't be out till April? If so, planning to get the rear buggy and convert it when indoor opens again next October.

yeah.. it appears you can run a shorty sideways, but not lengthwise in the MM kit. Opposite in RM kit. you can run it lengthwise, but not sideways. (at least with an unmodified chassis, that is)

I wonder if it's just because everyone that follows AE and wants a MM car are either happy with the C4.2 or still tweaking it so that they can be happy. I like that AE came out with a new model and that they made two separate cars for RM/MM but I think the rushed decision to use the C4.2 in the Worlds hurt the release of this version of the car. At least they aren't losing business though because the two models are competing with themselves

+1
I have a 2-B4.2 and 2-C4.2, going with RM first, will kick back on MM since C4.2 is new for me.

RM late fed, MM Mid March, but knowing Tower, it'll be half a month always late.. hahahah, but if you pre-order now, you'll surely get the first batch when it becomes available.

Probably because not as many people desire or need a MM vehicle. It's funny though, more and more tracks are now trying to get the traction up as high as possible so people can and will run MM. MM seems to be the fashionable thing to do as of late, kinda doesn't make sense to me.

Did you guys notice the aluminum appears to stop right in front of the servo? In theory it should bring the balance back in line. Not so much need for all the extra weight in the rear.
