Exactly, why go ahead and even put a final finish on the chassis when its only going to get ran for as long as possible and probably have more holes drilled in it. Look at the B3 chassis and it will be the same finish and wear as that... Way to early to say really anything about the car other than pillow balls

Not to mention it probably has no colored anodizing, if any at all. I wonder what the specs are, looks like they aren't running the wide hex hubs like in the original RC8T.

I'm hoping for easy access diffs. Not that my current Rc8t is hard to work on but, the less screws/parts to remove to get to the diffs the better. Hopefully the center diff mount is better also. Seems like no matter how careful I am with the current mount, I almost always end up stripping one of the screw holes out.

Is it a longer chassis and different ring and pinion gears that make a new rig? I don't remember them saying the team trucks were prototypes

I didn't see Saxton (Who didnt race at all in Texas) or Michael Paige (who Saxton flew out with) running truck out in Texas nor did it seem like they even had a truck with them.

Also, the proline race was the race in Texas. Sik Cross was the race Cav was at.

Saxton didn't bring one to Texas a few weeks ago. Wish he had though! I think I ended up 4th it pro truck with the old truck after some steering servo issues.

Makes sense to me to use compatible parts for testing out geometry. Hopefully AE makes their arms a bit beefier than Mugen.
