I was very surprised when they replied to me on twitter confirming a lay down car...no time scale or details though. Link to conversation here:

No worries! I've been toying with YZ2/XB2 as it's become harder to keep up on carpet, though I'm still running the 4 gear so not exactly bang up to date. Looking forward to seeing what they do. They've also posted 2 pics on Instagram (body on) from the IFMAR world's last year with the hashtag #B5mPrototype so they're obviously up to something. Just wish they'd hurry!

I wonder if there will be a mid motor option, with the laydown. Cant see it being just laydown as America dont run on carpet/astro. This will be interesting too see what they come up with.... or what options you will get.

Just a laydown car to cater for Europe i feel Mark, AE seem IMO to be missing out in this area, for all others, for now, the 3/4 gear car will have to suffice?

If we have seen the same page, it is the Worlds prototype they used... the waterfall is printed and the gear casing is not very intricately shaped (as such, probably machined).

That said, posting info like this to me comes across highly suggestive that something's due soon

Very true, but it does say that 6 specials were built by Gene Hustings for the Worlds.... In reply to comments that they haven't released a Worlds kit, Associated do say " we hear you loud and clear, stay tuned " .....which is the strongest suggestion yet that a Worlds kit is on the way...

I was told there's a new 2wd coming out in a month or two (three weeks ago) and a new 4wd to follow a couple of months after that. I also heard it was a new platform.

They are indeed addressing the fact they dont have a high grip car, i asked them a while back, and they are on the brink of an announcement, they also go on to say MUCH has been learned and developed since the Yatabe protos dominated the A final!
