If the keep the savings for the club members the same as this year, its a better deal to wait as its 63 dollars on $399.99 .

Bodies ugly, missing parts, build quality, diff leaks if they can complain about it they will. And not even seen the car to boot.

Body ugly is an opinion. Stryker has horrible taste anyway so his opinion doesn't matter ()

Build quality? I always get nervous everytime I open a kit box and start a build. Yet Never once have I had an issue. Maybe it's because I actually READ the instructions? Maybe because I built an original RC10T back when you didnt just buy your bolt on hop-ups off the shelf?

With the amount of kits produced there are going to be missing pieces here and there. It happens with any manufacturer...I've had missing pieces before, did I cry about it, no. AE takes very good care of those that it happens to so...

The ecash only works if you are "billed" during the ecash window. I lucked out on my b6, because i pre-ordered nd it ended up shipping on the ecash window.

Note, item must be in stock to qualify for tower cash.

If they keep tower cash like they have now, it would be $12 per $100 for amounts actually paid. So after discount, the vehicle is in the $300-ish range, you would get another $36 to use for tower cash.
I was in a hurry for the b6, so I pre-ordered. I am in less of a hurry for the b64, so I will wait for stock and an ecash window. As of right now...I dont even have a track

I don't have a local track so travel about 2 hrs to race. Gotten used to it now but i am crossing my fingers that the track that I am hoping does get put in (its already started) will give me a local fix for the summer and maybe something for the winter too.

But yeah I am going to wait and see at least till its out. But, I was tempted for sure to just to preorder

If I want to drive 2 hours, I have a couple carpet tracks and an outdoor dirt. We have a new track being built that is only 30 minutes away. Should be done in about a month

No gamble... if you preorder it and add the promo code now it locks it in regardless when it comes out.

When I did my TC7 the code I applied when I preordered it was less than the one when it was in stock so I canceled the preorder and bought a stocked one and saved another $40...

Maybe he has 1970's shag carpet in his house. Unknowingly, parts fall and get lost forever; without him even knowing they were there. Lol

Either way, this kit looks awesome! I LOVE racing my 44.3 so if this car is better, it will be mind blowing. I really like what they've done by releasing two cars. Keep the carpet munchers happy and appease their base, the clay/dirt people.

Now we need a 4wd SCT...

yeah short of doing the 4wd SCT mod yourself like putting the desc10 a-arms and shafts on the RC8B3E doubt AE will make one.
