It's already over anyway. Carpet season is the only season.

Well we can only estimate that since there has been no official nominated release date, no word on where in the process of production the kits are, and no word if they are all sitting in the warehouse waiting ot be picked up by horizon. Then all i can assume is that it is at least still a month away from any sizeable numbers hitting hobby shop shelves. After waiting all these months im about to make the call to the LHS to get an Xray sent out. Very disapointing Losi.

I can't believe they would sit on information if it was for certain close to release, so I'm secretly afraid that you are right. However, I'm holding out hope that they are only one part away from packing them up and shipping out. I'm guessing they are just being quiet because they don't want to get our hopes up again.

I am not tempted by the Xray. Bah, to hard to find parts! Buy American.

Well, I'm done waiting. Going to dab a foot over to the darkside (TC4) for the rest of this indoor season. Maybe JRX-S for next year

But hey, by then there will be lots of setup tips etc

I haven't raced in months. Last time I raced was January I think and it wasn't even my car. Still won the race though with no practice.
