Now searching their website… that’s another matter :lol:

I always start with Google.
"liquid rc (part number or description)"
That usually works.
I think by omitting a search feature within the website, it encourages browsing (by vehicle, category or brand). When I browse, I often find something else to buy that I wasn't actually searching for. :D

This is the way! I also found that searching their eBay store is easier (then cut and paste onto their site to make purchase).

Someone posted 5264 on ebay today.

So maybe we are going to be 5,500 to 6,000 units.

Michael's has raised their price $75 (or more) over the past week. No longer a good deal.

Would be nice if AE could actually provide some clarity around the number of chassis they made and, probably more importantly, what the parts support will be. I’m not sure what’s to be gained by them at this point with the hype already waining. Now it’s about keeping your fan base supported (for that next re-re hopefully).

I think they are afraid it would set precisence. They have never had any clarity in numbers on any production so the best we can do is keep collecting numbers to see what's out there

I ordered later than most of you (May 1st). No shipping info from AE yet. FYI, sales tax was added to my order for Arizona.

(im)patiently awaiting the arrival of my childhood dream car.

That is what it's all about. $379 is a bargain to be able to build your childhood kit

It's a shame we'll never get that chance from Horizon/Losi as it seems they're dead set on making RTR kits and discontinuing things a year later. Not to say I don't enjoy the Mini JRX2/T but both of those are already oop, and I would have liked a fresh 1/10 pair.

I'm happy we have so many other rereleases though. Being able to build and race kits I just couldn't afford when i was a kid is worth the price of entry.
Consistency is the key I keep misplacing.

Got my kit on May 3rd, but have been waiting for my box art body from Andy's, which just came a few minutes ago. Now I feel like I can start the build, although I still need to decide on electronics. Any advice? I feel like brushed is the way to go with an RC10. Any tips for a motor / esc combo, and servo for that matter?

That will be a nice build! How frequent of runner are you planning to make it? A brushed motor requires some periodic maintenance (cleaning, brushes, etc) and some attention to limiting the run time to prevent overheating.

Probably some very infrequent and very light running. Will be on a shelf most of the time.

A vintage Novak or Tekin ESC and a vintage brushed motor would look best on the shelf and would be fine for occasional runs. For brand new motor and ESC, the Hobbywing 1060 and 1080 ESCs are good values. The Reedy Radon 2 19T would give good performance and look nice in thd buggy.

19t appears to be out of stock everywhere. 17.5t should be ok, right? Also, recommendations for steering servo?
