Associated dropped it hard! This car has everything the other guys have been adding to thier cars. Aluminum chassis, narrow at battery, raised front bumper and floating servo including the new pivot ball very nice. Decent price too
They carried over the F6 lower arms too. What's up with the body mounts? Maybe they are that way for the media pics

I saw this today through the usual media...

One word: AWESOME!!!

Except for the aluminum chassis, I am more a fan of carbon fiber but then again, I don't drive 12th scale but indeed, I believe ASSOCIATED nailed it again!!!

Just wondering if the new front arms will fit the (now) older R5 mounting holes...

I was wondering the same thing, still have a 12R5.1 & 5.2 - would be cool to upgrade those chassis' to this front end.

Looks like the f6 diff. if that is the case then yes.

The front lower arms are not from the f6. It looks like they use a bushing to adjust width tho.

I believe it's on AE website for $285.99. Sounds about right, with what it comes with: Al chassis, floating steering, Fox shock, graphite front lower arms, etc.
