Eric if you are truly worried about it, don't buy the car. Robert to describe someone is an idiot, just because of a concern they have, shows you are a no better idiot. It just shows your own ignorance and unwillingness to offer a useful reply. Kind of like the "my dad is better than your dad" syndrome. Can't we all just grow up?
I myself use the sermos connectors and they have saved my electronics at times because of the ability to disconnect something quickly. That is really the only thing connectors have going for them.
I also remember when my brother was into slot cars and it got so competetive that it became the "who had the most money to spend" was the one that won. What did it do to that hobby? Face it, if you want to race professonally you need to learn these things and have the money to do it. The "asphalt/concrete basher/ weekend warrior" types don't need the pro type cars to have fun or be competetive. That is also why they have different racing classes, with different rules. At least there is one way that RC should not see the demise that slot car racing did.

I like a good kind bebate. As far as connectors go you can always find a way to make it work.

Default I also can't wait to get my hands on...

the new radio system the team guys are using. Sounds like it will be like a dream come true. No more interference or antenas.

Oh, no, I saw a pic of the shock caps on one of what I think is a team driver car without the engraving. I hope they keep this detail on the shock caps, it look tech.

Wow... I was only poking fun that you said that 'nless Losi finds a way to fix the problem ' that you wont buy the car. It just seemed silly to me for someone to say that without having 1st hand knowledge of the car.

Anyway I've obviously offended you and I apologize. I was responding off the cuff and forgot to add the necessary symbols to make my comment come across as funny.

Thanks for the link to the high quality pics.

I love the look of the sway bars. Seems very functional.

More news from the worlds, Francis finished 7th overall & Spashett 10th overall. Also Francis finished 4th third main.
Guys, I think thats pretty darn good for a new pre-production car. My hat off to Team Losi!!!! I know I might catch a little flak for this next post but I can't help it. "I think some of you better learn to solder"

I'm happy to see that 2 finished in the top 10.
Not bad for a "new" car. It's the only new design out there, besides the fact that it's the only one NOT in production. All the others are just small variations of the older models, cept maybe the Corally RDX.
Damn only 2 more mo.
