Yes the M1A1 Abrams is released and I am taking pre -orders. I have already put them on order and would think the Christmas tree in a few places will have them in time.

plastic and plastic with metal boxes for now, I am sure metal tracks will be available shortly. I ju7st hope they don't have the rubber pads like that leopard, turns out they get lost pretty easily

rubber pads, I will never never never ever again get tracks with rubber pads unless they are screwed/riveted  on. My leo tracks are absolutley useless after losing 7 or 8 pads.
I'll wait for mato to cast a metal set.

I have not lost any pads off of my Leo.

Put me down for an M1A1
But do not forget I want a kit also.

One or two usually comes off but I either pick them up or use my spares. I bought an extra 50 just in case plus whatever extra that came with the tracks. Once you run them in they are not too bad.

I run my leo once in a while and haven't had a chance to break em in but I still hate the padded tracks. I am happy you guys have better luck but I hate mine and won't ever use them again.

Wayne your tracks are from a Tamiya kit, probably a bit higher quality than that of the mato variety

oops !

I did not see your pr-eorder ad.
I was thinking it was IR.
I would rather start with an IR version.

No such luck ??
