The new dogbones don't account for less dogbone plunge, just more consistent throughout the suspension travel.

It's not exactly CVD-type. I'm not sure the reason for the new joint..but it may have something to do with the longer bone creating less of an angle in the joint throughout the suspension travel.

It's a possibility that production has been pushed back, I'm not sure.

I just hope that an AE situation doesn't happen again! That was nasty!

Not sure what that means..but we don't need to get into it hahaha.

Losi will wait until everything is perfect before they let it out..and if that requires waiting a few extra weeks, they'll do it.

I'm guessing it's about how long it took for the MGT to come out after they already gave a date once.

Remember when the B4 was going to be released and AE pushed back the date again and again...it ended up being like 4 months late to the shops.

That was nothing. The TC3 was announced about a year and half before it hit the shelves. Losi is not like that. The car is usually out withing a month of there estimates. It is usually a parts shortage that keep the kits back. They make sure they have enough kits at all there distribution centers to meet initial demand before the release the kit. At least this was the case with the MF2.

Yes, the S12SE is the Drake Edition side-exhaust engine.

Drake wouldn't be running it with his name on it if it wasn't balls to the wall with power.

The whole point of going to a side-exhaust engine was to smooth out the bottom end hit that plagues high-output rear exhaust engines when strapped to a 2wd gas truck, but this engine still has plenty of grunt. The engine is very strong throughout the mid-range and pulls like crazy on top.
