I've seen information on a new version of the SX-9 that will be comign out..unfortunately I can't remember which site I had seen this posted on
In the meantime however, it seems as though GM is doing an inventory adjustment on the current generation and there are some VERY attractive prices to be had for the SX-9.
I'm only just getting back into electric myself, and part of what prompted the move was that I was debating whether or not I wanted to re-invest in the gear required...esc, batteries, kit, etc...
Then I heard that one of the local shops was running a special for brand new SX-9's for $125!!!!!!! $125 may not sound like the greatest of bargains...until you consider....that's in CANADIAN funds
I couldn't resist...I bought the ESC just in case....a week later I had a JR3550 and Novak XXL....3 days after that a Fantom 410 stock motor...and just this past Tuesday I picked up my Bloody Knife...
I found a set of 4 matched 1.182's on the shelf at my LHS.....now all I have to do is finish assembly before my wife discovers what I've done
I've heard that there were some quirks with the SX-9 that someone else can get into...for my application..and especially at this price, I wasn't able to find anything else that was even close to its performance..
Couple that with the SIZE of the SX-9 and it looks like a sweet fit for 12th scale.
