FWIW Amain is still showing that it is arriving 2/1. I guess time will tell.

If the LHS has a track, giving away track time is often useful to sell goods (tires, motors, parts, etc.), so that can work out well.
Even with $70 off they still make money just a lot less.

I hope it comes out this week Eli as Tower will have the e-cash promo this week I am sure. I might have to wait till March month's promo then.




Anyways on another note - How dare they announce the F1 car before we get our hands on this Buggy!

I understand that this is a tuning option on the B5/6 2wd cars, but without a definition of the change in geometry, it seems like "mystery meat"..
The only thing I know 4 surtain is, gull wing allows the shock and tower to be lower = a lower center of gravity. I was told it affects steering, but I am not sure how.

Pardon the silly question, I run a 17.5 B6 on Carpet (DRPRC.com) the LRC stuff I completely understand. And with that setup, I run a Exotek slipper eliminator.

Why would the carpet muncher feature a slipper and not a center diff? I mean with velcro like traction, where wheel spin just doesnt happen, why a slipper? (I am thinking of the slipper in terms of the 2wd where it could be used to limit wheel-spin)

No, seriously, I just wondered that our availability date here in Germany differs by a month from Towers. Quite a long time.

Had to wait half a year for my SC5m ordered in Dec'15, that's why I'm a bit concerned, that's all

Center diff allows power to be split front of rear, ideal for low traction. Slipper is better for high traction where it's more direct drive. No need to split power front or rear. You want that instant power.

curious how the stock AE pads (assuming the same ol material) will hold up. Ended up going with Garolite style pads in 2wd and loved em especially on high traction.

I am guessing that testing didn't show any positive effect from using a center gear diff. A slipper protects the drive line (on-throttle landings, etc.), same as on high traction dirt.
