"A lightweight, hollow aluminum rod gives the suspension arm its potent strength and provided the E4 designers with an opportunity to remove or shape excess plastic from around each arm"

Hollow aluminum rod? Doesn't that make it a tube?? It may make the arm strong, but once you hit something the arm gets disfigured instead of (hopefully) bouncing back to new.

The Losi is an almost a "Pro3". The E4 is almost a "nitro chassis". I would like to see them include an mpeg to show how easy maintennance is going to be with the 3 belt design. I know that on nitro cars, accessing the front belt and pulley can be a pain.

Unlike the Losi, I like the easy access to the battery bars.

How many guys remember the FSR BULLET? This E4 car brings back some memories. Pretty cool looking

A picture with your post, when trouble shooting, will probably get more rctech help than without...

The mounting of the bottom of the rear shocks is going to mean trouble for foam tyre users.

This look like a production version, very different from previous prototypes version, look nice and it seems competitive chassis.
But i think it's heavy, this chassis is derived from GP with 3 belts, and this car just fits better on Mod than Stock races, anyone agree too?

Better have a lower street price to attract people to all that extra drive train parts... Its a peice of art for sure. But the extra drag and weight of the 3 belt design does not gel with stock.

That 650$ figuer is sick
