Yeah,
I love the FS2, super dialed. But I'll be selling it too due to financial reasons.

With you on that one Razathorn !
I also think a lot people upgrade before they even have the current car dialed, but each to their own. Some people just like to have the newest gear.
Personally i would rather wait for a while after the car comes out and all the bugs have been ironed out.. then suddenly a 2.0 is released..
Thats when i will think of looking into upgrading.

Heard from a Kyosho team driver today that they are scraping the current ZX-6 design and starting over due to the poor performancel.

I wouldn't doubt that.

I think the next race that will have the big guys attending is the CRCRC Mid-West Winter Champs. We might see a revised car at that event. If not at that event, definitely Reedy.

Some of them may even go to sugar to stay hip and price people further out of the game. I can't even get proline 4wd scrubs in the compound that works at my track anymore. On top of that, the "team setups" will be for mostly high bite and the average racer will struggle where previously he could just copy a team setup if they're not good at setup. Also, non sponsored people will really struggle at "big races" because the tracks EAT tires and they can't afford to compete, so everyone gets super serious and tries to get sponsors and soon you're left with what happened to the local 1/8 scale scene across America: The only ones left are the ones that have been doing it a long time, get tire sponsors, and drive around to the pro series races and rarely show up to club racing, and then the sport dies when nobody new wants to get into it.

It dies because we forget the club racer and focus on the top tier.
It really depends on the surface, you can also have high bite without spending a fortune on tires. On our astroturf-surface a minipin yellow tire lasts about 1 month, dboots tires usually twice as long and are still pretty competetive. But what really is expensive are the batteries because you have enough traction to really use every bit of punch you can get.

That is a bit doom and gloom - next there will be floods and locusts

In Europe, and the UK in particular we have a lot more rain, and use Astro tracks.

I think tyres used at worlds are often rarely seen at club level, and I doubt that would be the aspiration of most club, regional, or national series that do not take such an unusual approach for a worlds race. In the UK variants of the Schumacher Yellows seem to be the tyre of choice come what may.
