Yes, those are Aluminum Spindle Carriers by the front wheel. This is according to the racer who took this picture of it when it was in Arizona about a month ago for testing at one of the state's better known tracks.

If it's release date isn't changed, the first 50 or 100 names on the Pre-Order list should be getting their kits by the end of Feb or early March! The list now has over 300 names on it.

Default Re: Associated B4 4x4 Hybrid Heading For Production!!!

It has just been confirmed that the BJ4X4 (B4/TC3 Hybrid) seen at this year's Off-Road IFMAR World's will be going into production in the near future! This concept 4x4 Off-Roader was completed only 2 weeks before the World's plus it was seeing it's first ever competetive race at the biggest of ALL Off-Road events! It placed 13th overall which quite simply is..... Astonishing!!! It Bested many Losi XXX-4 Grpahite+ cars, Yokomo MR-4 BC Specials, and even a small fleet of it's distant cousin the Durango!

Here in detail from David Joor (Owner & Administrator of RC10B4.com) is a more accurate description of this Amazing news which at the very least will spark more interest and rivalry over the entire 4x4 Off Road Class!

DAVID JOOR- "Ok, here is an update that everyone has probably been waiting to read. This car is for sure being slanted for development by Jason and Brad. The intention of the car is to be fully racer oriented, being threaded shocks, titanium, and so forth. The car will be a full kit, so you don't have to buy a TC3 and so forth. Now the most important concern on peoples minds is cost. Obviously with a couple of guys putting together a kit, they don't have the resources to make molds to cut down on costs. So the car will cost more than say the Losi but not even close to the price of the Durango. The production price benchmark is set to be below $500. They plan to also have a full working website where you will be able to purchase all the parts needed that are not offered by AE and probably even those parts as well. Soon enough hobbyshops will take on the parts as well so there are no worries about not getting the parts you may need.

This is some exciting stuff and their seems to be a light at the end of the tunnel. I will keep up the info as I get it.

Did I mention this just got on Team Orion news? Thanks Orion for the support, they know this is an important development taking place."


Many Thanks To DAVID JOOR For This FANTASTIC News!!!


Here is a Link directly to the Orion news posting for a bit more Info on it plus also where a link to David's site can be found for some cool pics and lively discussions:

Getting close Jason was in the store today (Superior Hobbies) and things are almost completed. The shop should be the first to get them in stock so get your name on the list.

are parts going to be readly avalible opon release?

What distributors will be selling this car?

I understand a lot of b4 stuff fits it, which is great, is there any chance asc. will buy the design and take over production themselves?
