If you are looking at the "d" versions I personally dont think there will be a huge performance difference going to the new one. You should be able to find a nice used one with the 67mm bones and everything at a good price once the new ones are out that would get you most of the way to the new buggy.

I think you can put the new arms on the old buggy so the only thing you are really missing is easy diff access and possibly the "layback" transmission if that worked at your track, but even then for the tracks I run on I think I would need the old style stand up anyway.

IMHO the new chassis will make a difference on all types of surface, but I guess only time will tell...

Just get the new car and then you won't have to update. AE released the new car because it is better or they would never do it.

I would strongly consider going with the newest model of whatever version fits your needs would be the best option. Cost could be a factor in one's decision but you will have parts and support available longer. Besides in a couple of years or less it will be the old model anyway.

The shorter chassis is the best part of the new car imo. The b6 drives way better with the shorter chassis and it comes on the new car. To be perfectly candid, not too many of us can drive a b6 to its full potential, so can we just say that we all want the new car cause we gotta fit in in the cool guy club.

Everyone gets something different out of the hobby. I like that manufacturers are trying to make a faster race car. It means the 1/10th scale buggy segment (my favorite btw) of the hobby is doing well. The more people out racing, the more manufacturers will make cool new stuff. It doesn't matter if you want the new car to try to go faster, or because you enjoy building a new car. As long as you are having fun.

People like to complain too. Hard core racers will question design choices, others might say the release is too soon or unjustified.

I think AE has done a good job on the B6.1's. I'm excited to see how the car does when it is released.

For me I am likely going to sell my car (with Kashima's and a few other goodies) for 200 and would happily spend the difference for the upgrade.

If this is a new class to you I would just get a b6 and save the money....especially with the used/lightly used prices being so tempting. I think the b6 will still remain competitive for a while especially in the sportsman.
This is a great response... Thanks.
The difference between the two kits here in Australia, just checking now, is as little as $50... After reading your reply it's a no brainier to go the 6.1D...thanks again!

The current gen 4 gear transmission and motor plate are listed... Hmm. Gives me hope that the bolt pattern is the same and I can drop the layback into my B6d with minor mods.

You know we want more than that right. We are never satisfied.
