Tend to agree that it's more hype than anything else. There is only so much one can change to the car. Will stock up on 2013 spares for now.
With so much supposed all new parts, it begs the question how did they get the prior incarnation of the RX8 so wrong that nothing could be carried over.... And how could they in their conscience sell the product believing that it needed so much improvement....
But as said, business is business, and if they can't encourage people to keep upgrading, the RC population is not a massively expanding one, and hence no RC business will be able to survive for long. Marketing at its best and we can't fault them for trying to earn a living. We all need to. As a smart consumer, its up to us to determine if the changes are worth our hard earned coin. No one forcing us to buy their products...
The only car in recent history that I can recall as ever having been revolutionary was the serpent Veteq (and that was truly new in a bad way sadly).
