Make sure you know there's a new "lite" version coming out.

I honestly dont know why MIP would release such a pricey upgrade when AE has a 3 gear out for a fraction of the price. Sure, sure they offset the motor by 3mm. that 3mm sure is expensive

150 is a little pricey, I was thinking around 100.

even at $100. the pucks are a huge upgrade for stock at $70. This will be a mini upgrade, if it is at all. I am not sure my motor needs to be centered, the car fly flat. And if it is, someone will come out with a motor centering kit for way cheaper

$150??? Mip will be lucky to sell 20 units. Although there's a sucker born every day.

hhhm... I tend to be the guy that will buy the bling and spend money I probably shouldn't' spend on my RC gear... but even I won't spend $150 on that when AE has one for $10. (or whatever it costs). BUT.. that is just the MSRP. I bet you will be able to buy it for less.

How much lighter was the chassis the guy from FB was doing? From the pics it looks like the AE light one is super milled out. Wonder if it'll be 20-30+ g lighter than stock?

Stock chassis on Amain is $47 bucks, hope the light one is somewhere in that ball park,

stock pucks msrp 90 and sell on amain for 67 ~25% less than msrp can't see the 3 gear retail less than 100 at the same math. kind of absurd for that considering the price of an associated 3 gear. could not justify the price personally
