When should we see price reduction at the distribution level?


Don't worry Guy, I'm not mad at ch'a. You'll have your chance to prove everyone wrong soon enough. Tire police will be teching this year though. Later

Hey, I'll be within specs for reasons other than the recent change of opinion on what used to be my "pretty but non-aerodynamic" Nitro Shoes, but have now become an "unfair advantage" with 2mm more width in the rear.

To whom much is given, much is required. Being sponsored means I have a duty to focus on helping XRAY improve products and provide up to date and useable setup information to the everyday driver. I'll keep a set of new Nitro Shoes on my shelf for sentimental reasons though. Maybe I'll break them out next asphalt season and run against the Nitro guys...IB3800's...no 4000s+...high turn brushless motor...pit man...hmm...might work...they probably won't mind...

I've nothing to prove on my end though.

i went ahead & ordered two sets yesterday from KT Hobbies to try them out, so this is good news to hear.

We have seen the price reduction and have since passed it on to our customers.

Thought about that, but I really need to stick to the common foam tires that most XRAY drivers use on carpet. In the past I've dialed in my setups with Nitro Shoes and then tested the same setup with the standard electric foams to note any differences when giving advice. But I'll stick closer to the norm now. This doesn't mean that I won't be trying "weird" things that are within regs and make some sense in theory though.

Horizon Hobby seems to have them listed, but you'll probably have to call and confirm they're in stock.

Horizon has 12th scale and gas sedan two-stage listed but not the electric sedan two-stage listed.
