Losi is shooting for a release date of October. The pic posted above is Mike Truhes' car. But like I said before the production car will look different than that. Just wait and see...Be paitent...Good things come to those who wait.

No problem, If Custom Works opens up the sprint class at the Birds I'll even have a 2wd rear motor JRXSprint as well.

What will the price be? Will it still be in the mid $300 range, or will it reach the $400 plus stratosphere like most top end touring cars these days?

Default Performance gains?

Todd or Andrew-

Were the most advantage performance gains made in moving the motor to the rear or by making the suspension arms longer?

Thanks,
E

I think the biggest performance gain was from the narrow diffs to be honest. Unfortunately my SoCal setup for the front motor car didn't work too well on the rear motor, so it's hard to compare them. Like Andrew has said though, the car definately has more steering and cornerspeed, and I think it's even easier to drive than the first car as well.

Randy,

With the narrow diff's, were the arms, drive shafts, made longer as well? Which would (possibly) aid in helping the chassis work better (roll)?

I'm just shooting in the dark as I'm not an engineer. I would like to get back to driving an American designed (made) sedan.

So the new arms will not work on the old car? I was hopin I could just pick a set up for they are supposed to be stronger then the old ones. I guess I will have to consider a whole new car then.
