Very likely, not always (99% not) we see the new parts on the RedRC pictures. Cars from the big manufacturers that are allowed to be photographed I think are almost always dummy cars.

But usually this happens because they don't want to show new parts or design elements of the next car - not to hide a 2 year old car.

I don't have any skin in this game, but that chassis focus is not from Reedy. It was from the AOC, it seems. Nice looking car though.

Good call. Not a Reedy setup at the link I posted.

Here's what PetitRC has on Ronald for Reedy. 2016 setup sheet but no car pics, only the body, conspiracy!

http://site.petitrc.com/reglages/yok...USA2016052729/

Here's a chassis focus from Barry Baker at Reedy showing the car.

A little bit more than a rumour, I know people that were there, I also know what cars people run over here in the UK, a lot more 14 and 15 Cars as most have ditched theirs 16's

I really hope they keep the current toe plates, I am sort of invested in the old design

I wanted tc7/ techra style toe plates till I saw them pop out in crashes,

BUT! It's a good built in failure point,
rather than tear out the rear carbon fiber chassis screw holes(new chassis)

Definitely for a 2 year old car, it will drop sales of the 2016 version if people knew Volker was driving a 2 year old car. Not good for business.
