All cars fade out at some point. What you hope for when you buy a car is that the manufactor makes it possible to upgrade your car to the new model. That is not always possible.
The fact that the car is still around is a testement to is popularity and value.
To say if parts will be around in two years on an over 5 year old car is impossible to predict, but for the price tag and like many have already stated.....this car is a good bang for the buck. Great for causal RC'ers and great for the "Parking lot bashers"
Buy the car. Get you a few spare partes now.....like, front and back, shock towers, and steering arms. Those are the parts that get broke the most on most RC cars.
Then drop you a nice engine in there and away you go!
