What I was saying is, where is the advantage of it??? Other than the bling affect and it costing more.

We are trying to come out with a better product than the previous one. This is our attempt without going into a totally new and radical design....for reasons that we still have to support our RTR and Team kit. Those that like it, enjoy. Those that don't, won't.
I thought it was AE's policy to just make the best cars they can for the best price. Not pander to public opinion that changes from day to day. That's why I have supported AE and I hope they continue this policy. But now thunder tiger own the company who knows

the trick is used to check if a chassis is tweeked. Assuming shocks are built to the same lenght left and right, droop is set equally left and right and that tire diameter is the same on all 4 corners.

By marking the center line of the chassis using the xacto blade to lift the car at that point u can see if the car lifts both wheels at the same time. If it doesnt then the chassis is tweaked or the weight distribution is off or the preload on the shocks is off from left to right.

Without going into full details its done to check that the car is balanced.

Are the shocks the same at the tc3/4? Or will they be a different design as well?

The TEAM DRIVERS were complaining. The tc4 just did not work as well as the tc3...period. I am glad to see that an attempt is being made to save face, but only results will sell me on this new car. GOOD LUCK AE at the Reedy you are going to need it! Barry--->

I dunno what everyone is complaining about it's not like everyone has tried this new Factory Team Kit , after all it's not even on sale yet. Me i like the look of it and am glad i waited alittle while before getting a new shaft drive car. Hope this new kit helps me to regain the form i had a year or so back when i was last racing shaft drive Tamiya's in stock ( 27t ) class racing. Beltdrive cars just dont do it for me in this class.

All i want to know at this minute is:

1 when will it be coming to the UK ?
2 how much will it cost ?
3 when can i see a full detailed breakdown of the kits spec ?

it looked good to me when i saw it at the RCX show. I can't wait to see it racing at the ready race. As for the BMI comparison, of course its going to look the same since the BMI conversion is based of AE's car.

I noticed AE wired the shotcky directly on the esc. Will this work just the same as wiring in on the motor?
