Joe Pillars Facebook latest live stream talks about it in detail. Says they are hoping it to be on the shelf at Amain within first couple of weeks of June.

Body is the same design, 80% new parts inside. new bulkheads, shock shafts, hubs, towers, stronger front arms etc lightweight drive train to be available for spec racers (optional)

AMain seems to have it available for preoder with an anticipated arrival date of 2020 0710...though I don't really trust their dates...

Mibo has them listed for the end of June. Found him to be fairly accurate on due dates.

Maybe you guys that know a lot about four wheel drive buggies can answer this. I haven't had a four-wheel-drive buggy since my Yokomo dogfighter in the mid-1980s so they have changed a little to say the least. It seems to me more and more the designs are so similar that purchase priority is coming down more to durability and parts prices/availability than performance. Am I correct in this assumption? I only really run on indoor clay and outdoor dirt. That besides the grass track in my backyard. No carpet. Thanks

IMO you are correct. The Xray, TLR, AE, and Yokomo are very similar in design and performance. It’s really personal preference and how available parts are. My local track supports the above 4 except Yokomo. You have to weight availability and price with durability. If brand X costs $10 to replace an arm but doesn’t break very often, then that’s a better choice than brand Y that costs $5 an arm and breaks 4x as much. And X and Y are not related to any specific brand in my example.
