Depends, AE got anything going on besides their sedan? I know Losi does and Horizon does not seem to care about the sedan at the moment. You guys may see your car before I see a Type R.

I have to admit the TC5 is really starting to catch my eye. I can't wait to see what the production car looks like.

Default TC5

Am hoping to upgrade from a TC3 to a TC5 .
Will the price of the TC5 be in reach of the average racer.
Do they plan (as if they will tell us) to change chassis like xray in a few months after release?

I wonder, with the current trend towards 1/8th scale cars and trucks, why would they even consider a new sedan, unless they were too far into it to back out at this point. With 200+ at our Florida state series events(one day event) 90 at our off road regionals and 32 entries(not a misprint, 32 total) at our on road regionals, I know I would question spending my money on anything other then gas off road racing at this point?

In fact we have alot of hardcore on road racers showing up with 1/8th vehicles lately, saying on road has gotten out of control.


On the other hand, maybe a new AE car will breathe some life back into on road?


hhhmmmm

You do know that losi's new sedan is done and ready to go, boxes, manuals everything, they are just waiting on the machined alum from overseas and they will be ready to ship kits.

Expect a price similar to the top tier of sedans on the market, as per AE at the novak race.

And no, it wont be redesigned every few months, AE does it once and does it right. Excluding the tc4.

No, I did not know that and have no way of knowing that since Todd does not keep me updated!!

Unless you can back that up with some sort of proof it is just a rumor or hearsay, and nothing more then the two weeks you hear from certain other people.

I dont think you will hear a real date from anyone until the boxes are being packed.

1/12th scale. Need I say more? That is where electric on-road is going, and I don't see why companies are developing TCs that are going to eventually be sold for 1/12th scales. TC is going to die at the same speed as it came about. I will probally still get this car tough, since it is the biggest class at my track. Long live 12th and Team Associated!
