Okay, so I've been using these forums for a while now to gain some info on all the new gear and kits thats been coming out. I've been out of the hobby for a little while now and the itch is returning. I usually race in 1/10 electric touring and wanted to try a hand at 4wd electric off-road. I think we could all agree that although these class of cars are making somewhat of a comeback, it's not as popular as you would think it would be. Do you think this is because there are no cars in this class for the 'occasional' racer? I mean, to get a used xxx-4 would cost around 200 not to mention everything else to go with it. Do they even make a non graphite version of this kit anymore, or was it just not popular enough? Maybe if they made a kit that was somewhat more affordable then this class would really take off? Forgive me if I'm wrong but the main cars in this category would be the B44, MR4-BX, xxx-4 and the sbv2 pro. All of these cars are 300+ for the kit alone. For example, when I was running TC's there were non graphite versions of the xxx-s and the tc3 that you can buy for 150. These cars , although not graphite, could still compete with the best of them. Is it just me that feels this way?
Sorry if this sounds like I'm bitchin' about hobby, I really not trying to. I will eventually get one, I would just like avoid droppin' 600 bucks for another car if I could.
