I am surprised to see that no one has commented about this being a kit and not a race roller. Are there any thoughts on that?

I definitely need to pick up the shock caps and servo inserts.

T. Hodge, any input on what the difference in king pin inclination is and what handling difference it will make?
Adam has been doing a lot of testing this week and so far has really like the new blocks on his car. He feels that the front end stays flatter and has a even more positive feel. He also mentioned that the as he applies power the car carriers a much smoother and consistent arc out of the turns.

Todd Hodge----I think the kit is a great idea. I don't understand why Losi doesn't offer both. I would prefer a kit. It takes twice as long to tear a car down and rebuild than to just build it from a kit form.

I'm not knocking Losi on there "Roller" editions but I like to know whats what and make sure everything is to my liking.

+1 (but I do understand why they do the race roller instead of a kit)

What is the point of a EU specific model anyway? Wouldn't it make more sense to sell it to anyone who has cash in hand?

Kit version is great! I agree that it really sucks to have to tear a roller down and rebuild it. I would love to see kit versions of all rollers!

Sounds good! I may have to give them a try when they become available. What caster is he running with them? I see there are 10 and 12 degree versions available like the current stuff.

Nitrotec is basically the 1st-gen +4 w/steel bearings and a non-factory tuned crankshaft
It's certainly not a plus 4. The crankcase doesn't look anything like the plus 4 case. It is most likely based on an older novarossi design. Crankcase looks identical to that of the old p5 engines. You can't go by port count until you actually see a sleeve. Novarossi has labeled their 3 port engines as 4 port engines before. You never know if they are counting the exhaust port or not unless they specifically note it as such. Even if it is actually a 4 port it isn't simply a plus 4. More likely a p5 based engine with 4 port sleeve and turbo head.
