That's like saying a "un-redesigned" vehicle isn't new. The point is moot. Everyone can say what they feel, but according to associated, it's a new car.

Back on topic.

My pic is supposed to be on the cover of the "new" 4.2 box. At least that's my understanding.

The tinted windows block my view. Last minute changes in packaging suck.

I really hoped for an all new platform, but I knew deep down inside this is what they were going to do to buy themselves more time.

And I know a place where you can win one!

@07forrester Since you own this thread, please be sure to update the first post with all the usually stuff we say day in and day out. One really good thing would be a "racer" starting gear ratio. I think the AE manual for the 4.2 is still a bit conservative for blinky.

It's like that because an "un-redesigned" car isn't new. It's an update. The B4 and 90%+ of it's parts and design content date back to 2002. The only changes that actually effect the way the car runs are the rear tower update ("4th" hole), the BB shocks, and the +8mm chassis. It still runs great, as it always did but let's recognize it for what it is.

Thanks for the correction. I knew cav stopped having darkside do his stuff at the nats, just didn't realize the logo wasn't darkside.

Plan on it, I will compile of gearing lists I use for different classes. Hopefully everyone will pitch in as well.

You can bet your right hand that there will be a B4.2 Worlds Kit in the very near future and depending which Ryan wins (Go RM) it will come with either AKA or J Concepts tires . Will there be a new thread for that kit too?
