Ok. So I was planning on getting Ivy a new Radian 80 but fell in love with the Radian XT. Then I hear that they'll soon be capable of rear facing to 45 lbs!! Hell to the yeah! I googled it. All the available XTs are RF to 40 lbs and don't say anything about this. All the sites that DO confirm the change are forums for parents just like this. So does anyone have a for sure link or anything? Everyone says the change is for models made September 2009 - this month. I know we're barely a week in but are any available yet and where? Ivy's birthday is next month and she says she wants the red one. LOL. Also, the sooner the better cause I need to give my Radian 80 to a friend who's baby is VERY close to her car seat limits. I emailed Sunshine Kids but haven't gotten a response yet. Anyone got info? I'm really excited about this seat!

I don't have any info to help you, but I do have a Radian 80 and Soren and I both love it!

Over on car-seat.org, where I originally heard this, the recent update, from the girl who posted it, said that Russ (the SK's guy who announced it) said they should be available starting sometime in Oct.! I just read that today. Go here, http://www.car-seat.org/showthread.php?t=96691&page=5 and the girl with the oranges in her avatar says it.
