Well I very much doubt that given AE's main market is US style dirt, and the present Schumacher offering was useless on the Euros 2016 dirt track... Orlowski and other Schumacher drivers managed the C final.

Before you say anything the present Yokomo car was hard work on that track also.

Lots of B44's and Xrays in the A final though... Cars with centre diffs.

22-4 2.0 looks good too (at the euro )
... but AE will never copy a Losi (fortunately )

If there is any new AE 4wd platform car, it will be tested at EOS starting this September. I doubt we'll see a new AE car by then, but perhaps later in the EOS season?

It will have to be good on high traction and carpet, as AE have committed to run and sponsor EOS this season.

As it stands with the B44 platform, top AE drivers don't bother running it, as its so old hat, they simply can't compete on that track surface. Seeing Neil Cragg being pushed round and outdriven by Malin and her XB4 in an EOS B final was sure a highlight of last season. Given Cragg the same XB4, he'd have won the A final no doubt.
