Hey ... I have already put my name on a wait list and preordered my car.

Since I saw it in Sacto. You guys realize the $350 is a killer deal. Theres so much r&D and work in this car its incredible that you guys are so ignorant on what it takes to put out a machine like this.

Try building one yourself.. even if you had the plans.. whats your time worth?

Quit your whining you naysayers.. if you can't afford $350 for a world class car .. I bet you got more money tied up in your mini-T..

You AE guys the tc4 is just right, for you.. but this car is well worth the wait.. losi did the right thing in product engineering and take the best of breeed form all the tc ideas before it and put it in this car and actually executed AND delivered.

Don't fret though once you see one run you'll want one as it is years ahead of any tc out there.

They also have the XRay FK listed at $495. I think those prices are a bit inflated.

Apparently no one on here know for sure how thick the chassis is. I'm sure when the actual release is made by Losi it will mention it.

'Diffs can be adjusted up/down and front/rear for CG and belt adjustment'

Wow, to be honest, I'm a bit scared of this thing. With an adjustable CG comes an REALLY adjustable roll center. What are setup sheets going to look like?

With all this adjustablilty, I think the pro's are going to be hooked up, but I can definately see some club level racers (like myself) dialing the car right out of contention and like a pitcher for the Red Sox, just plain domein'.

Looks like an absolutely amazing sedan though. I can't wait to check one out.

I do think, to be honest, a generic setup will be devised for the car, and people will fettle in the areas they know, and then some will play with the diff locations and maybe get lost in a mirriad of settings, but more than likely, you will find a layout to suit your driving and leave it like that.

If there ARE so many adjustments, then you best go book your practice slots on the race track now ;D

Yes, the chassis is 3mm thick, the car is pleanty stiff.

Don't be scared of all the roll center and CG adjustments, I am sure that you all will really like the car.

Different springs, and much higher rates.
