I would mount it to the mud guard right behind the receiver box.

I'm sick of the friggin mugen copy crap. Carbon fiber, pillowballs, and a wide chassis doesn't mean it's a mugen. This has been in the making for quite a while and has many more features such as quick access diffs, and soon kashima shocks. This buggy is a mutt, pillowballs from mugen, quick diffs from durango, beast shocks from kyosho, carbon bling from xray, and I really really hope insane durability from tekno.

I was thinking to the bottom of the chassis. Better signal.

I had the opportunity to see one of the first cars a few months ago and it's well built. All the AE fans will enjoy it. Happy to see them back in the game now. It will make everyone else step it up or get left behind.

Why, because it has 4 wheels, shocks, a rear wing and is sold as a kit, not a RTR? Seriously, I see this all the time. Just because a company uses a front hub setup similar to another company that makes the entire car a "copy"? Maybe AE realized that the Mugen setup is working and tried it and decided to put it into production. And honestly, I could be wrong, but I don't think Mugen was the first to use that design so they obviously copied someone else s car, right? If you follow the train back using that logic, this car would be a "copy" of the first 4wd 1/8 scale buggy that used electric power, right? People, its just a car. Did they take some influence from Mugen, I'm sure they did, but is that a bad thing? Point out to me a car that is 100% original and has nothing similar to ANY other car out there. And this coming from someone that has driven a mugen for the last 3 years, I can't wait to see one and drive one of these cars

Having had the chance to drive the nitro Mugen, and the nitro RC8B3, they are nothing alike.

I have some contacts at AE. Do you have an engineering resume you would like to send in? I can get you in contact with the right people.
