Default New TLR 1/10 4WD buggy?

Does anyone know if TLR is coming out with a new 1/10 4WD buggy? The street price on the 22-4 2.0 dropped to $249.99, which is usually indicative of a new model being released. I was planning on ordering a B74, but might wait a little bit...

When the price drops just before a big race, YEAH, there is a new one coming. I've been holding out myself.

None. The only things I will say about it is it sounds a bit different than the old one.... and it looked very fast.

I hope it is still belt drive. I am guessing they had it at the ROAR Nats at EN Hobbies. I have been waiting to see what they come out with.

If he said it "sounded different" I'm guessing its shaft drive.

I think it is still belt drive, unless the belts "looked" like a shaft from a distance.

B74 was late to the game, not sure who started the current geometry trend with extremely flexible chassis designs (floating servo, etc), but the YZ4 and 401R were introduced before the B74 with 2mm high flex chassis with center rib brace designs.

Fingers crossed Losi can come up with a more durable solution than it's predecessor

If Iím a betting man I bet no one except for inside TLR has seen it. The 22-4 platform is still good. To make it better make it easier to work on, and make it use a pill system for adjustable A-D blocks

IIRC Yokomo B-Max4III was the first wheeler to feature the backbone and floating servo mount, and I think it might even have had a floating servo mount before the touring cars. It has become the go-to design for wheelers and rumor has it that even Schumacher will switch to such a platform although the current CAT works great - as long as it works. I used to be a belt drive fan, but the B74 won me over: with a proper drive train, a shaft car can be just as nice to drive. I am looking forward to TLR finally bringing out a new 4WD and will grab one of local Losi fanboys' cars for a ride for sure! Can't wait for the Worlds later this month, so much potential for new toys...
