Also, why no carpet? Gilroy is only 25 miles from the Jo.
The "Jo" !
Yeah, but I would still race asphalt more than Gilroy.
I would rather drive to Ripon, the track is nicer.
So you saying the 05 WILL be competitive on asphalt this year?

I think it will be, and Im picking up one. But Ill have my TK as back up.

You cant say for sure that it will be good at all, but im pretty sure it will be better than the current car, if thats the case I'll be happy.

How about you guys?
Is this thing worth getting if my Pro4 kicks ass on asphalt with rubber tires? Could the 05 compete, or should I stick with my HPI?
of course it didn`t meant anything for you because my post is directed to anyone who is interested to know what parts from previous T1 that will not works on the new car.

Anyhow, regarding your concern, would you be able to cateqorize from what you believe the different about a car that you can judge it is meant for asphalt or carpet? If winning big race (World Championship for instance) is what you wanted to see, TRF should be on your priority list to consider.

If looks told performance then the JRXS would be the worst car imaginable because that thing is UGLY!
But, people say it is a great car.
I'm keeping my Pro4.
That way I can have shaft and Belt and decide for myself.
Could be that each car has its pros and cons for specific tracks.

seems the JRXS hasnt done jack in its pre-production stages. Which doesnt really fill me with confidence.

Of course its the driver more than the car, but if people like Matt Francis & Dirt cant do well with it, i feel it will be a handful for the non-pros. But hey, the cars not done yet, so id assume they are still using the races to test out new ideas for the car.

What could be better than kicking ass on asphalt?

I guess your right.
Its just the bug that everybody gets when a new car hits the scene.
I may just get a new Pro4 and experiment with my old one!

i agree. it doesnt even look fast. fat yes lol. but weird. wonder when ill get used to that design. the pro3 even looked a little more 'conventional' because it had a mid rear motor design. and mounting batteries from the underside? what a strange idea lol.

Got an email from a local hobby shop saying that they wont be getting the FK05 until "After May"

I dont know if thats due to supply & demand or that they know the release date already. Either way, it kinda sucks

I've been monitoring the Xray site religiously...and no mention of a release date yet...

If the shop has been hounded by people waiting for the car, they may have just made something up to shut people up..or to help shelf stock move on other kits by discouraging people from waiting...

Either move is lame...

yea ive been keeping my eyes glued to the xray site as well. "Info coming real soon" obviously means a week or two... or three... who knows.

Im hoping they are wrong, but no news from xray doesnt fill me with much confidence.
