Aaron, the Palomar series is going well and with addition of Kris Moore things are starting to get interesting. Word is that Joey was signed on to do the newest track change, this is good because the place is a box and is starting to look like the baja 500 on a bad day!!

Well if that's the case, let me know when it happens! I'd love to go down there and check it out.

Waldork, gotta give the devil his due though...I've become much faster in the last 4-5 months since moving here last fall. Made the A in MT w/all your teammates over the last several big races, can't complain

The truck is ready to run, just waiting on the body paint. Should be soon!

Today is the 21st. Anyone get their truck, and can confirm that it comes with the new shocks, shock towers, captured pins, and brakes? I'm still waiting for mine!

The first batch of trucks are shipping out now. Any shops that had any on backorder should be receiving them soon.

I just talked to nitrohouse and they confirmed that the trucks shipped to distributors yesterday so my lhs will get it on the 26th. I guess I misunderstood.

I've read on other message boards that people got their trucks today :-)

Stephen - CA tends to do that to people!

Here is mine all built. Picco P7-R, airtronics 359, and 360 servos, JP-1 pipe, Ofna 1400 mah receiver battery, and spectrum receiver. Options include one-piece motor mount, alum wing stay posts, alum radio tray posts, upper "b" block in alum.( lower one already included in kit), and Mugen air filter kit. Used stock oils in diffs and shocks, although I think 10k diff oil in center seems light. Plus I did all the small tricks to the truck that made the buggy stronger. New shocks are nice, but I would like to see two felt inserts per shock for the new dust covers. This truck is just awesome, taking first place at a track near you!!
