everything you just quoted, plus they dont wear as fast as the stock chassis.

All the above and more consistent over all performance but less flex which equals less bent unis and broken engine blocks depending on which brand of car you use.

Exact reason why i'll never know what they're like. You nailed it. Our hobbyshop has 6 BCE's for a Mugen ready for sale. What's the problem with getting the Losi chassis? The locals ordered them and waited 4+ mnths to receive them with no answers to their emails, calls and pm's. What a joke.

i was pondering getting one as well to replace my losi rtr chassis and wasnt fond of the flex tech, but if its a 4+ month wait forget about it. nice product and exellent craftmanship just not into throwing $100 in limbo waiting for him to get around to it.

Thumbs up

HI Guys Absolute hobbyz (http://www.absolutehobbyz.com)
and bcespeednz (for NZ/AU sales)
will have losi in stock next week
We have been busy with getting new machine/Fixturing going.
Sorry for some of the set backs you guys have had
regarding delivery. Some we have no control over getting,
wrong address on first order makes it tough. Also we have
been getting new USPS software/process going, so That should
Help out a bunch. Again Thanks to all who have been
hanging in there with our growing pains. It has been nice
speaking to some of you via Phone and hearing of your
projects and loacl track set ups. Hopfully I will have more
time to chat after the Worlds Thanks Guys....

I will probably get these when funds allow. May get the RC8B and RC8T CE. May switch vehicle brands though.
