Randy,

Where did you get them?

You guys must have to leave security guards with your cars when you go out to marshall.
I used to race "real" formula cars...This is waaaay cheap in comparison!

Bearing set was $99 from Acer and screws will be $40ish. At least I paint my own bodies......

Being a guy who had a XXX-S G I hate to do this but what the heck....

Boy does that FK'05 look nice actually sitting on the shelf in a hobby shop....

Honestly though...the new Losi looks really nice, it will be on my list of cars to look at next indoor season....

If your lucky, it might! be out by then...

I am honestly shocked that there has been no word what-so-ever from the guys at Team Losi!

I guess I got my hopes up....again.

Silly me...

I would say the lack of an official word from Losi would probably stem from the fact that

THEY ARE ALL BUSY TRYING TO GET KITS READY TO SHIP

NOT browsing internet forums all day long

But I doubt a two minute update on this site or the Losi site would really set them back all that much...... Heck even a 30sec phone call to the webmaster is all that is probably needed.

That would make sense...

...until you realise that T. Hodge himself has been online a couple times since the returned from the Nats...

...even here on this thread.

Nevermind, you guys are all right.

Losi just has 1000's of kits boxed up ready to go and they're all over there playing Yahtzee laughing to themselves about everyone is eagerly awaiting the car kit and them not doing anything about it.

I never said that. What I am saying though is that I don't think its too much to ask that they tell us something. Are we valued customers or not? As simple as that! If we are, then share some info with us. Thats all I'm saying...

To me, a person would have to be a blindly loyal Team Losi person to not think that its strange that they have chosen not to tell us anything in a week where the kits are supposed to ship.

And as we've seen recently, even some of the most loyal guys are starting to wonder(signs...jokes...etc...) "whats going on"...

Was there ever an official release date posted by Losi? I havent seen one, so really, they arent having any delays, just finding better stuff in their R&D. Most of the time when a car is prototyped you wont find much info on it, at least Todd, Steve, and other Losi drivers have dropped by with pictures and info for us to have while we do wait.

I have to disagree. All the time in this hobby we see prototypes and companies share info on them. Just yesterday I was looking at a pic of a prototype Schumacher nitro car that AdrianM was more than happy to tell us all about. So its not unusual.

Your right, they never did post an actual release date. But they have told us MULTIPLE times when to expect the car. So that counts for nothing?

And I think your mistaken, 90% of the info and pics that we have about the car has been "dropped" by guys like JRX-S Bill and Gearhead. So lets give credit where credit is due.

I applaude your loyalty...but be honest, back on Sunday when the Nats ended, did you really expect to wake up Thursday and not know any more about when you'll get the car, than you did back in Sept....come on.
