Generally regarded as a pile of poo...

Most people hate the current incarnation of the AE Tourer. I've had VERY good luck with both the Team and FT versions.

Good sign that the belt is coming, straight from AE website

While supplies last we are offering the Factory Team TC4 kit, the world-famous winner of the prestigious Reedy Race of Champions, at an incredible price!

This car is regarded as a potent weapon when it comes to Stock or 19-turn touring car racing. The chassis provides the ultimate in handling and tuning ease, allowing you to tune to many different track conditions.
Suggested retail $599.99. SALE PRICE ONLY $299.99 WHILE SUPPLIES LAST.

VERY INTERESTING!

Let's just hope this isn't another "Let's discontinue a product" then release a new one 8 to 12 months later.

<cough>Quantum 3</cough>
<cough>Quantum 3</cough>

Get it here already...I will have the first kit that the shop gets in.

That was Losi's prototype that they ran at the 2000 worlds in Japan. I guess you can call that the first XXXS.

The more you look at that car you realize how far ahead Losi was at the time. Look at the low top deck,suspension,balance on par with the latest tourers of today. Losi should sell this car

Yea but I bet everyone who paid full price is pissed off now. Not to mention hobby shops that still have them in stock.

I thought that's what it was. I just hadn't seen that pic and couldn't really see the single belt design.
