See, this is what I mean. I don't have a single problem with what you said. If what I post bothers people, don't read them.

But most of the time my post are either about information or just fooling around.

Nothing seriously ment to upset anyone. But if it does upset someone....well....

I don't understand why the heck you'd sell the car you are currently using without having the replacement in your hand or at least sitting on the shelf in a store waiting for you to get it....

Losi is under no obligation to give us anything or even produce a new car... Be happy that they are and they aren't following every other company out there...

I really want to get the New Nomadio, or even the Spektrum for my 3PK... Should I be pissed because the airtronics guys have them already???

Around here, if you don't pre-order chances are your going to miss out on the first batch. Which is why I did mine so early.
Ultimate is rediculous, everyone should see that place at least once. I dont know how many hundreds of kits they have in stock, but it's just nuts. Some shops order 1 or 2 packs of each part, they propably order 20...

Actually, I sold my car at the end of last year, right about when I pre-ordered, and because I don't do much carpet racing during the winter I figured I was set. When I saw the mid Jan. release, I certainly didn't think I wouldn't have it by March.

As for the Specktrum example, I would say no we(I also own a 3PK) shouldn't be mad that we don't have it yet. But thats a different siutation, the 3PK version isn't 2 months overdue.

But you do have an excellent point. They don't have any obligation to produce the car at all. Guess I can't argue with that logic...even though its not exactly what a company would want to put on their ad poster.

None the less...point taken.

Randy... Does Ultimate have a race program?

Darkseid... maybe you can change your preorder for the Yok. It seems like it might be a good one.

It does seem like a good one. Lots of shiny! Although it doesn't have that innovative look about it that the Losi does. I'll see what Steve (SpeedtechRC) manages to price it at, then I might pre-order one then wait and see what happens as the month wears on.

I'd still prefer the Losi though. The Yok caught my eye, but the Losi caught it first.

Darkseid, I know what'cha mean 'bout innovation. Hopefully all that innovation wont' prove to be to difficult to tame.

I guess if the new Losi doesnt suit my driving I give the Yok a try.

Aw come on....parking lot is the best. Huge crowds of people amazed at how fast these "toys" go. To me, thats the best part about this hobby.

So where do you do most of your racing at. Indoor asphalt, Indoor carpet, Permanent asphalt? I know many of the best tracks are out you guys way.

And even with all that, they still don't have 70% of what I need every time I go in there! XXX-S bumper kit, no stock, XXX-S sway bar kit, no stock, XXX-S outdrives, no stock, Tamiya diff balls, no stock, Tamiya diff rings, no stock, Tamiya 415 diff pulley, no stock, servo horns, tires.... the list goes on.

I've nearly given up on going to them for anything. but motor spray.. lol.

Lets hope they stock more spares for the JRX-S than they have on hand for the XXX-S...

I love cars that are different. That has to be the main reason I'm waiting so 'patiently'.

I'm not too worried about it suiting my style. I haven't run into a TC that I couldn't get in a grove with. Some take a little more time than others, but they all seem to fall in line eventually.

I generally spend quite a while with a new car running the kit stock setup. And generally don't stray too far from that. The stock setups just seems to work for where I race it.
