Although I'm a nobody on the world racing scene, I might move to your hood coz at least if you get one early then I might too, and we can race them around town and turn some heads!!

Just kidding. I think AE are going to send the first shipment to Australia... I'll be waiting when the plane lands

Marcel,


Just looking to see what they are running and what I will need if any F/T parts from the start. I know AE will do the their homework and only put out the best but it is nice to see what I might need besides the swaybars.

B4Bandit,

There is always room on my block for an AE fan and I am sure we could tear it up at Horsham R/C on th Carpet or at Jackson on the Asphalt. Either way my area has it covered. If you race off-road I have a track in my back yard as well .

Since we are still in the development phase of our new touring car, I'm going to ask Juho to not share his current settings. I don't want to give false indications of setup trends, features, etc. that may not transfer to the production version. Thanks for understanding.

That's the best news I've heard in a while. Thanks Brent! Now we know, it's in the development phase...not pre-production or my favorite...READY TO SHIP!

Rick had another good outing at So Cal last night. It was the same layout as last week and he was able to go 3-4 seconds faster over a 5-minute run. He continues to impress me with his smooth driving and consistent fast laps.

That's a cool message man, thanks. I am an Associated NUT!!!! I love them. I have two, FT TC4's, I had two FT B4's until I gave one to my fiance and my fiance and I race an 18T and an 18B respectively. I just got a BJ4 in the mail which I consider to be the brother of Associated too. I might have to get another B4 but I might just zip around in stock until my driving is much better. Perhaps they'll bring out a B5 in a year or so.... I guess there is no real need.

PA eh? I was there soakin' up the atmosphere/Amish culture and had a bit of a snowboard at Ski Liberty several years back. Nice part of the world... Pretty cold in winter....

I have dreams of moving into the country later in life with my wife and building tracks in my back yard. It must be sick to have one. Hope your trip to Nashville is fun... Buy a Gibson guitar while your there!!!
