So, what is the deal with AE going away from the molded carbon components and opting for plastic? Was this just a cost cutting measure, or did the come to the conclusion that the plastic is better or more drivable?

Thanks!

Who has the b4.1 factory team in stock and for sale or has them on the way?

Associated sent out email that the kits are in stock and shipping but they don't have it in their AE store and I can't find anyone online who has it yet.

I saw that too. They really need to improve on their online store.

The "In Stock and Shipping" email lets people know that the kits are shipping to the distributors. The reason you will not see them for sale on AE's website, is because AE has an agreement with their distributors that AE will not sell kits from their own site, just parts.

I asked them about this when the "In Stock and Shipping" email came out for the RC8Be.

I'm aware that the email indicates kits are shipping to the distributors. Some of those same distributors sell online so my question was in relation to which online stores have them available for sale?

Perhaps Associated's email indicated the kits are being shipped from Asia as most online shops are still showing middle of August before they are in stock.

You may want to check your info on the availability of AE kits on their website. All of the kits are available for sale directly from rc10.com but the newer kits are not listed. Is that because they are not selling 'new' kits online to give dealers a better chance at selling them? Only time will tell.

But if you want the original Factory Team B4 kit it is on the AE site and available now.

I would like to buy a new kit and keep my existing car as a test mule.

But finances are tight right now as we head to Florida for 2 weeks for vacation. I was hoping the FT B4.1 would be available before we leave so I have something to build on the drive down there.

We leave on August 14th so if I find a way to scrape together the funds for the kit I still don't think they will be in stock anywhere in time to ship to me before we leave.

Something to look forward to when we return. Or maybe I can talk my wife into checking out some hobby shops in Florida. We have a day in between Universal Studios and Disney World.

Hey guys...

I made some trades and ended up with a T4 FT and a T4 with a couple RS upgrades on it.

It seems I can not give them away hardly...

what are the going prices for such trucks?

Thanks, and sorry for the odd question. Even the BST section searching did not provide me with much information.

What are the effects of the 1/2 degree and 1 degree hubs? More specifically I want to know how they will help AND hurt performance on small and technical tracks as well as larger tracks with larger turns/jumps.

Check out Ryan Cavalieri's setup from Trackside. I know it's old but this is the same setup I ran on my truck the last time I ran at OCRC and it was pretty good.

The plastic arms flex more which gives the car more traction. More traction = easier to drive and more driveable. The only time I don't run plastic arms is on the super high bite blue groove tracks.

So its sort of a sway bar action?
