The new kit is their gas truck.

I believe all the kits are being upgraded with new shock parts, including bladders. Suppose to make building and bleeding easier and help eliminate leaking. At least that is what I am hoping for.

Later,

Ae should buy some manufacturing equipment instead of just packaging equipment, then they could put "made in the USA" stickers back on the boxes as well as keep parts in supply.

It would be rather expensive for a manufacturer to set up tooling for every single part when other, more cost-effective options exist. For instance, Losi doesn't actually make their own tires.

Of course, my point is pointless if said manufacturer can't get stock from their suppliers .

What type of material are the shock bodies made out from? I know we are having a hard time getting composite stock for baseball bats because of Boeing and AirBus needing so much for thier new airplanes. Maybe they are having the same type of raw material supply problems.

I think the lack of kits and replacement parts is due to the transition of AE to Thunder Tigers purchase of the company. I heard. AE U.S, factory is no more they are no longer producing kits in the U.S. building.
