Default Is it true

Can it be?
the T4 has arrived to Texas.

Anyone have an official "YES"

RcAmerica just charge my card and they only do that once they pick the order and ready for UPS pickup.

That means hobby shops in the U.S. should have them by the end of the week, and in the pre-order holder's hands by next week sometime.

I really hope this is true. I'm starting to get a bit impatient.

With my luck I probably missed getting my preorder in for the first batch, by 1 or something. lol

I believe Canada has a different distributor (not RCAmerica), so it may be a different story up there.

Canada now deals directly with RCAmerica... Whether cars from the first batch make it up here is unknown though.

Yes but you need to faff around to do it, first you need to shorten the bottom ball cups by .5mm, unscrew the top collar and remove the O ring then bore out the top of the collar to 15mm this then allows the collar to ride 2mm up and over the shock cap (14.8mm dia) and still allows for screw down ride hieght adjustment to 4.5mm. You can still put the O ring back in to use with the shorter springs.

From what I was told .. 1st batch starts shipping today. The 2nd batch is not too far behind .. about a week or two, which should fill the rest of pre-orders and leave stock on the shelves.

Thanks guys. As long as Nexusracing gets a few, I think I'll get one of the first batch. It's the same place I had pre-ordered my first T3'12 from, last year around this time. Cheaper and usually faster to buy from them than a store in Canada. lol

I support my LHSs by buying various other bits that they can make a few bucks off of. Parts, bodies, tires, electronics, etc. They don't make any profit from selling the kits anyway.

My intrepretation from RCA was that most of the preorders would be filled and the second batch would put stock on the shelves. Hoping I get mine next week from Nexus so I can take a day off work to build it(or sleep aftrr staying up all night)

If they just arrived at RCAmerica, it will take another few days for them to be shipped out to hobby shops.

It's nerve racking waiting to see whether or not you pre-ordered soon enough to get a slice of the first batch!

Come on Stormer...pull through for me. I hoping either not very many people pre-ordered before pictures or info was released..or that the initial $599 price tag scared enough people off.

I'm pretty sure that those springs on hagberg car are the tshox springs from ame, those fit directly, look like hpi and seem to be working real fine on races around europe.
