I agree at the time of buying my b4 it was the only buggy stocked between two stores. But now it doesn't matter, that stores gone and I'm left to ordering online D:.

I can't wait for it to come out either but I'll probably be getting it next year.

Thats exactly what im saying!!!!!! i feel like it is counter active. People say the car isnt going to be good cuz it has plastic and stuff. But i trust AE and they are probly just trying to make money off of us buy posting the upgrade seprate.

All kidding aside...

I've owned every flavor of RC10 since the original.

This car will be no different and again will raise the bar.

The only upgrade that is honestly worth the money is...Not hex's...Not Tie rods

But the aluminum front hinge pin brace. I won't run mine without one because I'd anticipate front bulkhead breakage with a decent impact.

Hex's are nice because they are clamped on the axle and don't come off with the wheel like the plastic...

Tie rods are nice and pretty and are lighter but don't add a significant performance upgrade.

That being said, even with upgrades, you'll have a winning ride for under 3 bill's.

I will buy every upgrade and try anything to win. But i will not buy titanium screws and rods but i will get the turnbuckles. The reason for this is because i dont see the point of spending 100$ just on screws!

I rather get the stainless steel ones and they will look exactly the same!!
