Where as 4wd you can juts hustle it around the track. I seen the biggest 2wd crowd say when the 3.0 mid motor cars came out.
With all the newer 4wd buggies, the class got big here to. Then our Stadium Trucks went from 17.5 & Mod, to just a 13.5 class. Then that class got big. Now things are setting down a bit. More 4x4 buggies are separating out to mod, as I don't think the Pro's want to run with slower drivers. And the Pro's want to run their 4x4 buggies at more than just the big races. Our 2wd is still good sized. But when you start breaking down to 2wd 17.5, 2wd Mod, 2wd Pro Stock, 2wd Mod Old people, it does cut down on the 2wd class size.

Any update on availability? Must've had a setback? Been awfully quite past couple weeks, seems like there should be a lot more buzz with release being so close!

Any chance the AC is shipping before the end of February Frank? Whatís the delay on the AC compared to the DC? Is it the new gear diff manufacturing?

Who said the new buggy won't make you faster. Lies!! We run mostly mod class and that keeps it cheap. Some guys want to run stock, and if enough show up.

Do we have to buy springs? What springs are in the DC kit setup?

Will the new 5.0 gear diff and new steering fit on the 4.0 car?
Thanks!

The gearbox is the same so I assume the new gear different will fit. I was thinking about getting the steering arms - looks like they require the different turnbuckles for clearance.

You might be able to run the steering arm, but I believe it goes hand in hand with the new steering assembly which does not work on the 4.0. Gear diff will work.

Yes, hopefully it will be shipping in February. It is the gear diff, yes.

No, the 5.0 include TLR LF Green front and White Rear springs.

Gear diff will fit, steering parts will not.
