Yep, it sure has! But for better or worse, good or bad, companies know that the internet has made people more impatient. So they also know that theres a bigger risk of lost sales when things are delayed. So thusly, they know that they simply can not have delays...especially extended ones.

But its not just RC though. Companies on the stock exchange see HUGE rises and falls in their stock based on if they have delays in a highly anticipated product. So every company knows that while they may have no choice but to delay something, they also know that its not exactly going to make the public happy.

But this pretty much goes back to what I said a while back. People wouldn't be so impatient if Losi would at least throw us a bone. Some info, some new official pics, future hop ups, ....something. But they've stayed quiet....so.....impatients runs rampant!

YO guys, there has been no official word as to a push back....I will get with LOSI and find out if it has, but untill then im still going by the end of february. That is just my stand on this for now. The last i talked to todd, he said it was beeing boxed, now unless they are waiting for a part, then I will still assume the end of february, or if todd comes on and posts in the forum.

CypressMidWest you can cancel the FK'05 for that race too. It won't be out until the end of March also.

I'll just campaign the "TIRED" ( ) Pro 4 at the Nats I guess. It'll probably be okay.

Well as far as I know the Pre orders are up on Speedtech's website, but let's just say I've heard it's closer to the last week of March when it comes out rather than the third. I don't reveal my sources. They wouldn't talk to me anymore if I did. I think it's due to Xray making extra sure that any customs stuff is cleared beforehand. They must have learned from last time.

Hey guys,

No one wants the car out more than Losi. I was told it was being boxed and hopefully it will be in the stores soon. Patience grasshopper........

Go figure, the day after I put my xxx-s up for sale I find out the release may have been delayed. Two pages ago I said that would happen
At least it looks like it'll be worth the wait.

To a lot of people, the JRX-S is only a "rumor". They still haven't seen one to realize its potential.

Patiently waiting...
