Izzy- Retail is $395, that should put it in the stores for around $250-$280 is our guess. We are scheduled to start shipping next week I beleive.
There were some "Politics" involved with some of the drivers that were supposed to be racing. You're right it stemmed from their sponsors putting the "Nix" on them having any fun.
Ben, email Tamiya about more Enduros if you have some time, It would be nice to run one every few months, hopefully we can extend race times a bit more! Hopefully everyone will be ready for the next one. For the first event, it looked really competitive untill the teams started having problems.
