Don't care if I have aluminum hex's, aluminum bellcranks or aluminum rear hubs for that matter. All stuff I no longer run on my B4.2 that is not needed IMHO.

Hate to burst your bubble, but I am sure a FT version would not be only another $20...

Mmmmmm so much speculation over a toy car Well, a toy car that rocks anyways! Prices drop over time. By the time a FT kit comes out the team kit will be about $20 cheaper and the FT kit will cost around $40-50 more than the future price of the team kits. So… yeah, it'll only be about $20-30 more than the current prices But honestly, the only reason to wait on the kit right now is so that you don't have to deal with any factory defects and those 'first-batch' problems, all the returns back to the manufacturer, so on and so on.. But those cars definitely look nice! I'm glad to see AE come out with something fresh after all these long years.. First car I bought from AE was the FT T4… 9 ½ years ago

What is the difference in length with B4.2 and B5RM?

Just pre-ordered both cars from tower. I am sure by next year AE will release factory team cars. Almost seems like a slight downgrade from a b4.2 given all the FT parts I'm giving up.

Regardless, I now see a B5 and not a B4.3, so like I posted. I have mine on order (FT or not) and will finally be going back to AE, crappy shocks and all.

I do expect it to have the same "sloptastic" quality as previous kits...bummer but oh well.

Seems like a lot of space on each side where the battery can move around. Seems like the square pack or saddles is the only way to go.

Just do it Monty...(B5)

I'm getting one , heck everyone one is.

racer, the xrings and machined bushings on the 22 shocks were huge. I am hoping something along those lines will help the b4 shocks.

Monty, it comes with a foam for those running a shorty pack. I'm SURE you are at least running a shorty stick pack. If not, you can get them for cheap fpr mod class and "get with 2013 man!, it's almost over!"

tbh i like aluminum hexes just because they CLAMP....

only 4 upgrades ill be doing... turnbuckles, shock shafts, machined pistons, rear clamping hexes. and ill prolly just take them off my b4.2 and put the b5 ones back on it, since it wont be worth too awfully much after the b5 is out.
