BUT, I never had a roller or even a "race roller" R/C car so only those who have them can really know how they've been workin out.
I've built my share over the years but I might buy a race roller sometime in the future in order to get a new car on the track right away.
I think an 8ight or 8ight T roller would be awesome!
I guess I'm pro choice on that matter IF and only if the best parts are available either way.

Holla !! that's the way it is right der !!

I was thinking tha same thing.

I knw a hardcore rc guy who got a 8t roller and he loves it. Your nothing special if you can build a rc10b4. LOL.

I've actually bought a kit in the past just because I wanted to build something. If they start coming as rollers it will ruin everything

Seriously though...keep the kits, offer rollers if you like but please keep the kits.

If everything starts getting sold as rollers it costs $$ to build the kits (I don't care how cheap Losi can get 3rd world kids to build these for). If rollers are sold one of two things will happen.

1. Price will go up
2. quality will go down

Or both.
