EddieO- You know it!

The springs are different from the old losi ones, losi will have a new line of springs for the car, AE and Xray springs will fit also.

John_S- THe batteries are put in from the bottom of the chassis, there is a plastic tray that is held in by 2 screws, simply remove 2 screws and the battery door comes out, then the battery drops out, it's really trick.

does Losi plan on selling a complete spring set like AE does, and also, do they plan on selling a whole shock set, like many of the other companies, and I would like to know about the batts too

you've got to use the euro connectors in horizontal position ( ) hanging between two elements and the top plate (that you need to grind a bit), there's no room on the side for them.

$350..not that bad if you consider that they include everything in the box..(exept a oneway/spool)

it has more things out of the box than the tc4..but the tc4 is just $200..if you spend 150 extra then you have the same things in that car (titanium etc..)

i still put my money on the tc4... they will probably be equal fast on the track, but the tc4 will most likely be the easiest car to wrench on

I like the car but my only gripe is that I won't be able to use my "corally" type connectors. It looks like it's gonna be tough to hard wire. Which I don't do anyway. I don't like the way the battery bars are at a 45 deg. angle so you can hard wire. If you hit that top brace with those bars....can you just say "pop"...."sizzle"!! Oouch a Short!! Oh well looks like I'll just use some Deans connectors, no biggie. LOL

You guys are looking at this battery placement the wrong way. I fyou were to slide your battery connection side in first (meaning insert it at an angle), you should be able to do about any connections you would want to. Don't look at it as if the battery has to go straight up into it. Just my .02 cents.

I also got to caress MF's new Losi when he was testing it at Speedworld, it was impressive to say the least. The batteries are a VERY tight fit and there is little (if any) room that will allow for connectors on the batteries.

I'm sure there will be some ingenious solutions for people that insist on running connectors, but I will guess that most will just hard wire.

No there is no room on the side because of the belt, and there is no way to insert the pack sideways because of the top deck.

$350 is list price. So we all know it will be less than that. I noticed it's using the 24mm rims vs the 26mm on the G+. Yokomo wheels anyone? Knowing how well the bottom screws on the G+ worked for me, I'm not worried about the battery door at all.
It's going to be interesting to see how well this car does at the club level, in the hands of the average/below average racer.
It looks like professional's car no doubt. I'll wait also.
