I have been. I 've been going the last four Friday nights. I was running this XXXT. I was not running very well last friday. I changed my set up quite a bit and was not happy with it. It was way too stiff. I just finished re building the shocks, changing springs, and changing some roll centers. I'm really thinking about getting the new buggy once it comes out too.

Randy, I'm very proud of you! Seriously, I think you'll love how smooth the car is.

As far as the new buggy, there aren't a lot of obvious changes but I think some of the changes are the tranny is mounted lower and farther forward, adjustable pivot points on the suspension arms and a few other things. They also put things like a new body and Kevlar spur gear and some other hop up parts.

I saw one XXX and a stock B4. Maybe I met you guys there.
I was thinking about getting the new front A-arms, but no tranny. I'll wait to see instead of being one of the B4 style rush-in guys.

I have been running during the day with a different set-up. The night time track is actually wet verus the dust bowl during the day.

Robo- I think they said November.

Astro- I tried running out there on Saturday mornings. It's just too hot right now for that. The track can't retain any water in that heat and not to mention without any shade you burn up too. But you can't get any kind of feel for the car/truck because there's no traction. But now that the nights are cooler and water stays there longer, we're starting to find some good tire and suspension setups.

If you need to order already, try www.horizonhobby.com ( the source).

http://horizon.hobbyshopnow.com/prod...?prod=LOSA0030

It's $245 and will ship in late November. Hopefully Losi takes IFMAR so they can enjoy the same sales volume like AE with the B4 when it was introduced.

It bought me a GT7 last year Video poker is a wonderful thing. Unfortunatly the roulette wheels and blackjack tables tend to call my name a lot too.

I stay away form the Indian casinos. Next time you talk to Patrick, ask him about his blackjack "method." It'll make you sick. I thought Jay was going to B**ch slap him across the table at Chili's when he told us about it.
