The official word is "no comment" , but I think they're just waiting on packaging and instructions.

If you cant figure out how to install an anti-roll bar, I don't really think you need that anti-roll bar.

Do you think I'm lying about the ball studs? Pain and simple, they were bad. I was venting, after hours of building, nothing more, and I didn't care to cut up my good servo to make it work. More added shimming than I cared to do. Otherwise, I'm love'n this bad boy.
Wait, you're not using the kit parts but you're criticizing the parts?

Hmmmmm. . .. hmmmmmm. . . . ummmm. . . .. hmmmm

Default Man what is it with some poeple...

My Ford better than your Chevy garbage. Boomer do you think this is my first AE rc? The fact is AE has not changed their shock design for years and there are much smoother shocks out there. Don't get me wrong, Ae's shocks are not bad, but there could be easier to build. I don't know why AE keeps hanging on. Losi finally swallowed their pride and did something about it.

Do I complain about some problems? Yes! That is how I communicate. Why can't I want perfection in a tc kit? Why can't we have as good or better fit/finish as Xray? It's $200 plus for a kit these days. Don't get mad when I point what I think is a problem. Sorry if that pisses some of the company guys off. Just fix it then and I won't say anything. I noticed that some companies instead just make up excuses. I would rather read/hear, 'We will try to improve this issue, or maybe we can make a change in the future.' It's called business relations 101! Say good things to me rather that get all defensive and say that it's just a good racing tip or etc. Just my 2 cents. Flame away...

51, those blocks look great! I can't wait to get some of the tunning parts.

Easier to build than associated shocks Iv'e seen 7 year old kids at the track have no problem building them..... I think if they made them any easier...they would have to come pre-built .......there also perfectly smooth if built correct.......glad associated stuck with them

I just got my car here at work, so can't comment on the build (just looking no wrenching), but I did notice that it comes with the plastic outdrives.

I read earlier people wanting to know if they were composite or steel, the ones in the kit are composite.

Default Your right Joe B....

and a 7 year old can adapt to change better. I guess some people just hate change even if it's easier. So many people are using Yokomo shock caps and Tamyia shocks that you would think Ae would make something different. I guess not. AE shocks were the best maybe 5-7 years ago. There are better and quicker building shocks on the market today. Tamyia and HPI are much better in my opinion. Losi figured that out.

Anybody try that device that uses vacuum pressure to extract air from the shock fluid? I read somewhere about it and it looked like it would work well.

I'll post some pics of the shocks I'm using. They are great for med to smooth track surfaces.
