    Boss discontinued?

    Tower shows the Boss as discontinued on their website. Just as FYI. Hope Traxxas keeps the 1/16 line going, they are great fun.

    When I first read this I thought that you said they were discounted. I was bummed when I realized it was discontinued!

    I'm hoping to get one soon. Thanks for the heads up. I hope they keep em going as well. But if need be, get a rally or Kyle Busch and convert it.

    Could be some sort of change in the package... the MERV went through this too.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    Jimmy what do you mean, a change in the package? Like they are adding something that wasn't included before?

    Change in radio, battery, charger, ect... usually associated with a price change as well; where they want to purge the (cheaper) old stock before they re-release the (more expensive) new stock.

    Since there is only a slight difference with the Rally, I wouldn't be too worried. The parts that differ, can be found easily.
    Nobody is born with experience.

    Just buy a body and paint it.
    We converted my daughters Fiesta to this by just adjusting the body mounts...

    what body mounts do you actually need for the boss body - If I go to the buy Traxxas section

    Under the BOSS they list part number 7315 for the mounts but if I look under the Fiesta it say thats the number is for the Fiesta and part number 7314 is needed for the BOSS -

    We just modified the stock mount.
    The rear wasn't perfect but worked well enough.
    I'm pretty sure that the factory Boss rear mount posts are angled to account for the slope on the rear "window".

    Posts are the same, but there was/is a slide on collar that has the angle.
