With the ROAR NATS starting in the morning, this year being a world's year, and the release on TLR's faceFace page today indicating a new release tomorrow. One can only assume wellwhave a new buggy in the morning!

What are you expecting to see?
Will it be a 5.0?
Why X?

The TLR guys are keeping all their cars under covers today when they aren't on the track practicing at the ROAR Fuel Nats, so I haven't been able get a good look at them yet. I guess we'll have to wait until tomorrow- if is a new buggy being released.

Question - how long does TLR usually like to wait until the electric version release?

Arms appear to be monocoque design with inserts maybe. I’ll go out on a limb and guess that it’ll be metric screws as well.

the rear arms look to eliminate the driveshaft angle now.

looks like a narrower steering block as well. hopefully they have gone back to the inclined king pin
