Any word on availability? Are there any of these at the IIC?

Josh Cyrul and I were both running prototypes of the car at IIC. Kits should be available within the next month or so - currently waiting on the carbon and alu to be completed.

Chris , were you on the short rear tubes or the standard ? Also what fluid did you end up with in the front tubes ?

Hey Ryan. We both used standard tubes on the back of the car, both with 15k Kyosho (I believe.) I simply don't have the production side links/rear tubes yet, which is why I didn't try them. My front end is a normal Xenon front end, without any of the short tubes. Same with Josh, although he is using the Kyosho parts instead of AE.

Teru gave me the front end parts to try, but with the limited number of runs at IIC I didn't want to start down that path when there were other changes I knew I needed to focus on. I will try the new front end here over the next few weeks.

Once the kit is released we are hoping to standardize on the plastic so that all of us (myself, Josh, and Vesa) are all on the same stuff.

Get them from Xenon USA.

They are not listed on the website yet but send them an email to place an order.

This car looks so complicated. Over engineered. maybe I'm just old. Just want to put on track and race. Seems like you would need a 2 page checklist to make sure its ready for the race

The only additional parts are the front damper tubes. The rear tubes are just smaller. Other than that its just like other cars.
