Tony.. Personally feel that a Team Kit released 1-2 weeks after the B4 would please a lot of Racers. I am sure within 2 weeks of release of the car there will be Graphite parts released. Why not save the hassel and just release a Team car up front. Graphite Chassis, Arms and Tower. Threaded Shocks (not blue please) and Ti Turnbuckles (These can be blue if AE Wants). Heck.. you don't even have to offer aluminum screws.

Ya, sorry. I don't schedule the release of the kits Lucky for me (and Kurt, for that matter), we've seen some of the sample FT parts coming in....oooooooh baby!!!! You guys WON'T be disappointed!!!

There won't be a 'Basic' version. It will start out at the Team level. After that, not sure of the time frame for the FT, but with all the stuff on our agenda now, it's gonna be awhile. By the Team kit and just go and WIN with it....

All I want is the kit. I don't care if it the stock team kit, as long as I get one. The Nat's are going to be local for me and a bunch of others. I can hardly wait!!!

So $299 retail... what does that equate too on the street you guys think?

Retail for the Team T3 is 309.99 and stormer hobbies sells the Team T3 for $184... so I am thinking about $180

Tony, not to change the subject, but is there a T4 in the works next? I cant seem to find any info. I'd like to think that since the B4 is almost here a T4 isnt far behind. I'm in the market for a truck and was wondering if it was going to be this year.

I'd say the truck will be here just in time for christmas. I'd expect to see the FT B4 in May right before the ROAR Modified Offroad National's. That will give guys a month to get the car ready. Maybe we'll see a prototype T4 at the nat's this year!!!

This is just a thought but, who would like to see one of, or both USA companies (AE,Losi) make an 1/8 scale buggy???? I think it would make history in scale model racing!!!! I think they both have what it takes to do it without a dout. I'd be willing to bet good money that Kyosho's prices would drop like crazy just to stay in the market. What do you think????

Well, as it goes with all AE kits, a FT B4 won't be for probably a year or so. As for a T4, of course the idea has been thrown around, but our truck has always been good. Plus, we have a few other projects that NEED attention before that.

hahahaha Hobbytown Racer!!!! Been reading Xtreme I see! The put some BS in there about us and Losi testing some 1/8 scale buggies. Not gonna happen. Other buggies are out there right now that have a good hold on the market and we just don't want to tap into that yet. I say yet because who knows.
