I know this is still prototype stage photos but the arm mounts look VERY similar to the XRay/Corally style arm mounts.

Please, please, please make it so the mounts are servicable without having to remove the bulkheads. Maintenence (for me) was a big issue on some of the older XRay cars and the RDX. It took forever to change some things.

Make it perform, make it easy to maintain, make it durable and you'll make a ton of $$

The reason the Losi team drivers have those types of parts is that the car is still in prototype stage after being in production for over a year.

Thumbs up

Thanks, for the pic guy.

TC5 looking good, hope AE keeps the white A-arms.

It will help it stand out from the cookie cutter belt car.

I don't know how many would pay $600, but if it was worth it I would.

Yeah THANKS! Now AE's marketing is gonna jot that down.

Ever notice how a 400-500 kit price is "ok" now. When was that ok to charge for a kit. I remember the FTTC3 being 250 and thinking holy *&%^! I know, I know..its the aluminum parts and carbon fiber CNC chassis...etc. But still.

Compared to most, yesterday and today, AE has always been well priced. I think the belt car will be no differnt because like a previous post stated, we now find ourselves paying $400 + for the "new" cars and a well priced belt would be a no brainer especially for an American company.
