All I can say is that there is a reason I have been running nothing but Short Course lately... and 2WD at that.

Cheers,

You could have at least picked me up a 201 while you were there man!

I've been running my B4 2-3 times a week lately, I'm ready to switch over. Got my 511 all finished up at the track yesterday, going to give that some track time this week too

Also, in those pictures, I noticed that the car has the black shocks, and plastic hubs, but still titanium turnbuckles. Do you know if they are going to keep those as a kit standard?

No biggie. ACER was gonna supply the bearings.
If it's the same acer I have they are not worth 89.00.
Having casual-clad women pose all over the net just to say thier stuff is good. What a joke. I hope tamiya gets Bocca or some other kind
to supply the bearings.

The plastic ones are durable anyhow. Been on my 501x for a whole
month and have not broke yet. I have aluminum hubs off my 501x WCE
that might fit this car. Saves $$$.

Whats the difference between the black shock barrels and the newer
barrels they have out? Gold colored ones....

The "gold colored" (HL shocks) are butter smooth! Actually ultra-extra buttery smooth!!

The kit shock bodies will be really smooth as well, but the new HL's are the latest shock bodies. And as Jimmy said, they are "ultra-extra buttery smooth!!" lol

I guess I will try them eventually. I already have enough upgrades
on my 501x already, 511 body, wing set the works....(shocks are not on the car at the moment in storage)
Look at the pic and see for yourself...
Looks like a tottally different car from my old avatar picture.

But anyhow I heard the trf 201 comes with the blue turnbuckles is this true?

I was just wondering that as well, not 100% sure on the answer though... All of the pics are still showing the titanium turnbuckles, but no official word yet.
