Most of the major manufacturers are running prototype parts which are not available to the public at the present time. The parts will find their way into the kits after the Worlds.

If your talking about completely new designs, I doubt any of the factories would chance running a completely new design at a big event like the Worlds.

You could say the Xray XB9 is new.

The Hotbodies guys are testing new cars.

Not sure if I'd want a Worlds "edition" car. That flat Euro track requires a much different setup. Reno's using obsolete XB8 parts on his car. There's a reason why some pro setup sheets for certain events don't work for us at all, this might be one of those events.

Associated has the RC8.2xrhn5.37imtX - comes with Kyosho springs and Hot Bodies shock caps and Avid this and Ghea that.., but rumor has it you still have to drill your own "0-hole" I think.

Lutz is driving a prototype Durango at the moment, rumour has the Losi 3.0 on the horizon (pun intended) and I am pretty confident this isn't far off, Blookfield running Drakes personal car definately had a big impact at Euros, its pretty common knowledge that Mugen is up to something but I cant see it hap pening until long after the worlds.
I think we'll see a few manufacturers come out with "flex tech" systems like Xray in coming months.

Hard to say for sure what all of the various Mfg.'s have up their sleeves for the Worlds,

I doubt that there will be a completely "new" car being debuted at the Worlds, but then again, it is the Worlds, and if there ever was a time to have that "new" car thats been in testing, the Worlds would sure be the place for it to happen.

With that said, I'm guessing that many of the current cars will have new updates and options for the Worlds. The two execptions that I can think of are Mugen and Durango. I know that Durango for sure has a little something new going on, but how much of it is new is or would be a guess on my part. Either way, I look forward to seeing some new things floating around the pits at the Worlds. Hopefully there will be enough pics taken to cover it all.
