warlord- the kit comes with just two swaybars, they are the same for front and rear and I believe they are 2.1mm thick. The durability issue honestly can't be answered until the car is released to the public. When there are hundreds of cars running every weekend compared to the 3 there are now, Yokomo will be able to tell how durable the car is. Just from running the car this past weekend though and looking at everything, the design of all the parts looks very well thought out and durable.

Speaking of that....has anyone heard from Steve at Speedtech? He came on and said that he would have a price up by the end of last week, and hasn't been heard from since!

At first, I thought maybe I was just a little over excited to get the car, so everything seemed to be taking forever. I don't think that anymore however. He's going to have to tell his pre-order customers a price sooner or later, no matter what Yokomo wants him to do.

Racer: nice pics. It certainly shows how limited the space for mounting electronics is. I like how that personal transponder was stuffed down in there!

I was going to use the same electronics as in that pic, but instead I'm going to give up using the Xxtra and see if I can fit my Gt7 and XXL in there on the chassis. I think maybe if I get creative and mount the XXL on its side there will be enough room for both of them down on the chassis.

Hopefully!

Yes Yes, I'm here! I'm always on (it seems like I live on R/C Tech ) and I read this thread at least 3-4 times a day.

Price: Yes, I know I'm behind, I will be releasing a price today through email to all pre-order customers, but I have to give Yokomo a call this morning to make sure it's okay

Parts: We will have as much parts as we can available at the same time with the car.

Lastly, the day the car kit arrives is the day we will draw the winner for the free kit. Pre-order customers, look for an email today. (I promise!)

Sorry if it seems like I'm trying to pressure you, its just that money doesn't stick around here very long. Either the kids want it or the wife wants it or bill collectors want it!

I just wanted to know ahead of time so I wouldn't come up short when we get that wonderful call saying the car is in!

You'll have to fight the others for it! And the kids can be particularly ruthless, so watch out!

my chemistry is a little behind, so bear with me. but i remember from somewhere that titanium and aluminum will eventually form chemical bond so if you use titanium screws on aluminum parts eventually it will be stuck and very hard to take apart. i cant remember if this is true or not so help me out.

Hi Guys,

Pre-order for the MR-4TCSD will close this Friday (tomorrow) for us. We have to make sure that we can cover the amount of pre-order, and we are very certain that everyone that pre-ordered on this first batch will receive their kits. Also, the price will be announced to those that pre-ordered by email and not yet on the website. The price will be very competitive aganist other prices that are out there right now.

Look for an email from me later on this afternoon.

Steve Wang

Your right-aluminum and Titanium are not a good combo. Its called galling. I cannot think of what the chemical is called, but they do make a coating you put on the screw before assembly and that keeps the two parts from bonding together.
