thanks for the input on retrofit. Nickko reads these threads and I am sure he will value the input.
I can say that the projected street price of the car will be around 395.00 USD and the full works pro car will be closer to 480.00 (this could go up or down based on content) so if your expecting the car to be near the old pricing it won't be. To bring the car up to a level it can be on par with its kyosho, mugen competitors the car incurred some significant cost increases. Thats not going to make some folks happy but that is where it will be.
the difference with the pro car is it will basically be a K factory works package and a tuning package. So you can go to the track and have everything to tune the car in from the git go. This is just a rough idea. more intended for somone who has never had a g4 before
also I have to add that the pro car deal will initially be a USA car thing as it will be done in house here. The distributors in other countries won't have it initially unless they package something themselves so I cannot speak for them. If it appears to be popular I am sure Team Magic would consider kitting it at the factory direct. What I am also trying to say is that I am not speaking for the factory on behalf of the pro car idea. That decision is up to them.
shock springs 2 sets
alumunium clutch bell
carbon side braces
alumunium mid shaft bracket
it's the Team Magic G4 E or S-class owners who get screwed because they have to buy the KF upgrades themselves, just to bring their car similar in specs to the Mongoose.
there is a point where the car just has to move forward other wise there is no point. I think the term screwed is a little harsh don't you. Thats like saying that MTX3 owners got screwed because they released an MTX4. cars progress you either move with it or you don't. Should we tell TM to stop all work on the car??
