You confused me because you initially referred to all 4 positions (FF,FR, RF,RR) Yeah I saw the selection option for the rear but since the reason of going to the single blocks for the FR and RF was to strengthen the chassis I'm a bit skeptical that they would release an option that would circumvent that so I have to wonder if maybe that's an error on the sheet But maybe we will find out at some point

We are assembling ours now. It has the same fit and finish we all expect out of Xray. The kit is going together without any snags and we will have a full review, tested on our new indoor carpet track! Another winner from Xray!

It looks to include the 2pc suspension bridge for the front judging by the kit setup. Other than that the kit setup is the same as '11 just with the gear diff and shocks in one hole.

I think I'll just get the top deck and the knuckles to start with

You may want to mill the bulkheads, which chassis are you running?

11 kit chassis. The 12 one looks the same shape, just with the holes to mount the servo sideways

The clamps aren't lower on the '12 are they? I always thought it was a bit dumb to make them so high in the first place

Mine are machined down about 1.5mm iirc. Not sure if they changed on production kits. I was thinking they were lower but don't know for sure, maybe EA knows.

Not sure if you knew or not but the knuckles are already an existing part number they just swapped out the mediums for hards in this model.

Yeah I was hoping that they would have redesigned those in this kit to be lower but from the pic it looks like they are the same as when first releashed. I agree lowering them is definetely a must do.

What makes the chassis different? Mounting holes for the servo?
