I'm sure Schelle will have the Nova slipper for it soon and that system is flawlwess.

This makes sense, thanks

I've been trying to gauge what'll cost to convert the dirt to a carpet, because it sounds like the carpet version will be released a month behind the dirt. And I'm impatient. Looking at the parts list, differences in carpet vs dirt could be:

Slipper vs center diff ($60)
Center drive shaft ($13)
Roll center mounts HRC vs LRC (x4) ($68 total)
Roll bars** ($12)
Caster blocks** ($55)
Hard arms** ($17)
Springs F/R** ($10)

Potential total to convert dirt to carpet $235 retail (** $94 worth of assumptions means it could be as low as $141)

Lots of assumptions baked in there... and like Stig said earlier, none of these things would be necessity. It's not like the dirt car won't drive on carpet... But anyway this stuff can add up quick!

If you are only going to use the car on turf or carpet you should just buy the b64, you can still use the slipper on dirt, but the center diff is not good at all on turf or carpet.

Didn't once upon a time AE posted pics of the UPS guy picking up the latest release to send to hobby shops? Don't recall what vehicle it was but it sure was a treat for the people waiting patiently.
