Odonnell buggy
Team Magic will have a new or updated version

I am sure there will be others. Everyone will be updating to get the best possible car out for the worlds.

Even if the companies have just released or haven't even released their kit's yet, there will be so many different parts available, not in the kit's.

And I'd be willing to bet there's at least one Losi duplicate or close to it from one of these manufacturers.

Maybe a Losi improvement. Just take away the tweaks the Losi has.

And before anyone starts hatin', I have nothing against Losi or their products.

WHAAAA! Mugen and Kyosho are fantastic cars and they have great drivers but they will not be winning the worlds.Xray,losi or team associated will,Yannick,ryan maifield,ryan cavelieri,adam drake and mike truhe will be the drivers to watch and IMHO ryan maifield will be quickest and will win if he does not have problems,he is super quick and is the quickest 1/8 driver in america,he showed that at nats! apart from him having problems his pace was untochable.

Tebo may have a good shot aswell,because u know he will allways rise to the occasion and be fast ,but he would have a better shot with an rc8 i reckon

these are just my opions haha.
