Default AE Parts Availability - Any Word

Parts and kits are almost non-existant at this point... any word on when things will be available again?

Thanks,
Jason

BSchorr - Trust me... The Two Time IFMAR World Champion B4 or The Three Time ROAR National Champion T4 should be your choice... even if you have to wait a bit. Once you get the right set-up for either of these kits at your track... you won't regret buying them!

Stealth is right. Nothing can touch a dialed B4. I have both a BK2 and a B4, and the BK2 was easier to setup out of the box, but once I got the B4 hooked up it was in a league of its own.

I don't know what everybody's talking about with the "parts availability" issues. I run a 1st edition BJ4 and a T4 and have no problems at all finding parts. All of the LHS's in my area have a full stock on hand.

Some parts yes, some parts no. If your LHS had to replenish that stock, it would be a problem. If you asked them to order you a FT kit, it would be a BIG problem (as in, "ain't gonna happen").

Also, JConcepts has been unable to fill orders for the BJ4 for quite some time.

I'm not complaining; I was just looking for a status update, that's all. I managed to track down a Factory Team B4 a few weeks ago and I like it so much that I want a second one for 2WD Mod... but no one has any nor can they tell me when they expect to get one in .

LOL i had a FTT4 and a FTB4 last year, won every club race with it at my track, but wanted to try losi because i will get getting the AD2 and some parts are interchangable with the MF2.

Also does anyone know if the Quickchange hubs work on teh MF2?

I am officially complaining about AE part avaliablity. If you sell kits you need to also sell parts for them. There is no excuse for not having parts, its bull%$#@.

no they don't. Losi does make a quick change adapter for the mf2 though that will allow you to use the ad2 rims.
