Placed my order yesterday ,now I can't wait to get it !

I’m thinking about ordering one, myself. Did you order the chassis too? Tires? 

Speaking of the tires, I find A&R’s choice to put steer tires on the rear a little odd, (maybe more of a European thing?) when A&R makes the perfect drive tires (they call them a heavy tread front, normal width) to complement their steers. While it’s possible to put all-position 315/80R22.5 tires all around, it’s not common.

I don’t mean it as a complaint, so much as an observation. They’re a great company filling a void in the hobby, and doing it well. I have a few sets of their resin Michelin X works drive and steer 315s. They look awesome when painted with Tamiya rubber black and a little grey weathering powder on the sidewalls and black on the treads. Honestly, better looking than a lot of resin rubber ones.
