All I could see them doing is balancing the car out for brushless motors.

i am sure that it will not be a redesign. probably just a little reorganizing for the lipo brushless setups

I could see them te-tooling the chassis molds to get a bigger battery box so you could fit lipos a little better, redesigned slipper/motor plate/rear motor guard for those 17.5 gear ratios, and viola!! B5.

people talked about this a year and so in the past. its still winning why make a new one? they are probably thinking about it due to the rb5's success and the hot bodies buggy coming out.

Seems like they have been busy with eighth scale(RC8, big bores, e-conversion) I havent come across any problems with the b4, or even t4 for that matter. The stock body doesent seem to accomodate large ESCs but the proline vortex body clears the GTB well.

Well the B4 is about to be around longer than the b3 and we all know it took forever to get rid of that. It is also an Ifmar worlds year. I say no on a complete kit. A lot of upgrades though.
