Not as sexy as I was hoping but considering that I skipped the 2016, the sum total updates might make it worth while. I like the increased rear wing height adjustment, the anti-roll bar might allow softer front springs to be used, much easier droop adjustment which I wanted, angled side links, fully compatible - nice. My 2015 X1 is the best RC car I've ever owned (despite the tweak frustration) so this is tempting. Would like to see Associated, Roche 2017 and Schumacher first though.

Default X1

Will the kits shipped to the United States come with the aluminum chassis like the T4 2017?

Great question. Doubtful but you can hope!

Any ideas what the components required to convert a '16 to a '17 are? Or is it not worth it?

I always found it more cost effective to sell your old car and purchase the new one. X1 have relatively good resale value.

so its normal then to not having brakes because of the low end point. ok

well, i´m ordering the X1 2017 to se how it goes. rcamerica has them in about 2-3 weeks.

Hmm, anyone know if the new angled side link positions scan be used with both battery positions or just with the inline?

The 2016 Xray body, and the newest Bitty body are GTG.

The Protoform bodies need a ton of hacking to fit.

Very nice kit, all preorders have been shipped & plenty of stock left.

It comes with a 'new' body, but I don't see the difference with the old one. Markings for the body posts have changed, but that's all the difference we could find.
