Current Caster is 20* total.

10* in the Chassis and 10* from the stock spindle carriers.

You can get the new ALU Spindles which are 12* caster for a total of 22*.

This sounds like what they added stock for this version of the buggy.

We can get that as a part already here.

Not sure about the 5* incline for the kingpins though.. That might be truly different on the spindles making them different from our new ALU spindles w/ the extra 2* caster.

Someone else that has a little more know how can chime in on that one.

I was right about the engine being a Nova...

Basically sounds like a "standard" +4 (IE Non-tuned and no ceramics).

might be wise to sell the parts to US drivers. there are plenty of tracks that done fall under the description of 'jumpfest'.

I'm willing to bet that the losi motor will be closer to a Nova 21R than the 21-4

4 port already kills that idea; the R is a 3.

Carb is same design from original 4.

Turbo, not std. plug, and claims to have a turbo'd and knife edge crank.

The R has none of this

Nitrotec is basically the +4 w/steel bearings and a non-factory tuned crankshaft

I still don't get how you can make something exclusive to overseas only considering many retailers ship world wide now.

It's not that kind of "exclusive"; it's simply going to have a limited distribution and will only be readily available over there and not in the US.

Of course you can wait for them to become available if you really want one and ship it over.

By exclusive Losi means you will pay a premium to get that buggy back to north america
even if they sell il for the same price as the standard 8 2.0, with the weak dollar you're looking at a 700 dollar car plus shipping...
So i guess it will remain exclusive to the other markets

You'd have to buy it from Australia. The only place where we have a good exchange rate

dude, the +4 is a 3 port same as the r. they are counting the exhaust. so if you really wanna be like them both are 4 port
