Huh?

You realize it's not a creation right? It's simple updates with small improvements. Hence the 4.1 and not a 5.0. Why put out a new car when it's still dominating. They are simply updating things to meet the brushless and lightweight requirements.

Associated is a company that is out to make money, if the SC18 will sell then why the F not? No one said you have to buy it.

your not getting the sarcasm, are yah? im just trying to say that i think they are being lazy, thats all im trying to say, nothing else, nothing more. its my personal opinion. yes little changes are great but i would like to see something new in the 1/10th scale would from them. 10 years is just a little long for me.

Well if you're looking for innovation, there is Xfactory, Schumacher and Durango working hard to bring out new designs. Maybe that will push them to work a bit harder... Then again, as long as the winning racers are using their products, and winning with them, there isn't much pressure to innovate...

Until people really stop buying them they may not change.They are still a great seller.Some folks like the idea of a car still being real compatative without having to buy new stuff all the time.

AE isn't lazy. They've just spent their resources developing 1/8th offroad, Stadium trucks and RTR monster trucks over the years because that's where the new money was (and a 4x4 1/10th where the money isn't?). They enjoy a relative lock on 2wd offroad and as was said in numerous posts, when it's not broke (it wins, it sells), you don't fix it.

xray just makes little adjustments, some good and some bad. they are just high in their research and testing on their cars. some stuff is more user friendly, smoother ect. ae's stuff may not be the longest lasting, or the smoothest, but it sure is the fastest.

+1 When I ran on-road touring I ran the X-Ray stuff for a long while. Great quality and fit & finish, but a bit pricey. And when they are releasing a new car every 10 months or sometimes sooner, that starts to add up.

the x12 motors are known to have very different gearing than some other motors out there. and they get hot unless geared correctly.

never had an issue, and no one at TRCR has had issues with the motor aside from the bad bearings...
