From what I've heard shipping on the b5m's got pushed back because they accidentally printed the b5 rear motor car on the back of the box so now they need to print stickers to cover the existing box. It will be interesting to see if my box has a sticker on one side of it...

Bummer, I'm pretty sure those who are going to be getting a first batch car won't be too interested in looking at the box...

I'm sure the track is better and they are also running whatever tire and sauce they want. I don't know how much difference that makes but it is not the same as the race. Hartson and the others are running Dirt Webs now instead of Barcodes.

Just a quick check shows fast laps at RR 19.2-19.3, Hartson can run 18.5-18.7 with his rear motor car. Others in mod class are running 19.0-19.2
Would be super cool to see what the guys can run with the mid-motor car on the same track compared to the RM

If you get one of those you might want to seal it in a low uv/air density room and wait 15 years.

Are there words to describe how little I care about the wrong sticker on the back of the box?

No...


Ship the mislabeled product to me.

Can I just have my box and car now, and you send me a new side sticker later? I promise I'll put it on the box.

Or just use a sharpie and write in an "M". I don't mind.

Anxious to see how you like the new car Jake. Another couple of months and the wife will be removing my leash and letting me race again . Can't complain at all. I'm lucky enough to be laid off for the moment and have been staying home with my little guys. Oh, we're selling our house and looking for a bigger one so I guess you could say the Dork has been quite busy. See you soon bud.

Outside of the issues with the packaging it looks to be a little early for product release. The manual is not even loaded to the AE site yet. In addition the chassis has not been released/finalized (just assuming as there is no picture of the chassis available yet)

These may have just been things that were overlooked but do seen to be pretty important

To Tradin Paint

They don't release the chassis until the kit is released. At least they are better then before and release parts so they can be stocked before the people start breaking their kit car.

I just wish they would give a couple kits to the company's that produce nice body's before the kit comes out would be nice.
