Quick change engine mount-$45

And the the new parts they are working on:
radio tray
steering system
changed height of caster blocks

This isn't including the titanium hinge pins, turnbuckles, carbon shock towers, and aluminum drive train parts some team guys run.

If you were to buy a kit, you would still need to purchase some options the team guys run. Now your $450 Losi turns into a $800 Losi. A out of the box kit is now 2 years outdated.

So if Losi came out with a new kit, more than 1 part would be changed.
And people bitch about the $900 Kyosho that is ready to run the Nationals/ Worlds right out of the box.

Congrats to Mark for cutting the "K" cord.

Well none of those parts are strictly necessary. Although the inclined blocks do have a beneficial effect on the steering.
