Why? It's not like there's a lot of differences to warrant selling the original model. And unless you're quite skilled, the updated version isn't going to really change anything.

Distributors fault, not Kyoshos. So you wont run the car simply because Tower screwed up? If you got the older kit it really isnt all that big of a deal

Do you even know what the differences are between the two kits?

Honestly I can see his side. If I recently bought the RB6 and it wasn't the latest version I would be upset too. It's like buying a brand new computer with windows XP loaded on it instead of windows 10, you wouldn't like it either.

I agree. While the difference may be slight, if I ordered the 2015 and got the wrong version I'd feel the same. It's simply not what I ordered. If they sent me some machined Pistons, rear arms with the Zach mod holes and gold springs I'd probably keep it.
