The only thing I see I want right now are the 1 piece shock caps.

I will remain on the fence for awhile. I just get a WC a couple of months ago. I might look into getting one over the winter for next spring.

Also, pricing worries me. The WC is already a $349 @ AMain. How much is this one going to cost?

That's not true, according to the TLR website, the 22 wheelbase is 284-288mm, the RB6 wheelbase is 285mm

I think he was referring to the overall length.

I'm in the same boat, just built mine a couple months ago and just installed the ncg arms last weekend. I love this car and its hard to imagine anything much better. I'm excited to hear how it compares.

Yeah I have an RB5 SP2 WC car still NIB with a painted body, I think I might just make it a shelf queen and wait for this one to start using at the track. I cant wait to see this car and will pre-order it as soon as I see it up on Tower or Amain

I'll probably keep my WC for running the occasional indoor track around here. They are small, tight and technical and a long car is not as good as a short one. I will just swap electrics back and forth.

I knew you'd be more amped up than a kid with a hundred dollar bill in a toy store once you saw this car!!!

You cant do a straight conversion like that.

It will be in the mid to upper $300's I would suspect if that is the Euro price.

That's MSRP not street price. I'd expect it to be priced in-line with the WC kit, maybe a little higher.
