AE didn't make an offroad car for 15 years (1969-1984). I think its more that AE has always taken a more conservative approach to releasing cars. They've never really rushed to market with the "new big thing" following trends. Do they eventually end up making a lot of things that other companies do? Of course. Maybe the lack of new designs on the part of both companies has been more of a reflection on the popularity of those classes (2wd AND 4wd). Trucks are more popular in the US and both companies have given them more attention than buggies for one simple reason, more people buy trucks then any sort of buggy. I remember when that was the other way around though... god I miss those days sometimes!

The B4 is plenty new enough to stay on top. Even if the B5 does get released in 2007 (Which is so impractical that it is also borderline impossible), don't worrie about the B4 being obsolete. They sold so many B4's that there gonna be cruisin the club tracks for a while yet.

Maybe but they must not be relaxad with their development of new parts and cars, racing is always going forward and with added competition in the future they need to be prepared. Old achivements are quickly forgotten when you are not winning anymore.
