I hope so. Good condition RT5's are hard to find and people who have them don't want to let them go (can't blame them, still the best truck out there).

There are a couple on the shelf at my hobby shop that will probably never sell... I think the owner has them listed at cost (there is no ST class up here at all)

It's not. I posted body off pics of his RT5 on the RT5 thread. They only two unique items that I noticed were a new 1-hole tower and a Tebo-made ESC tray that sits above the battery in the rear. Check that thread.

I'm sure there will be a whole line of new kits based on the RB6 in the future. They'll introduce them slowly over time. It's better for business to space them out.

Can some one post the link to the short video of tebo? I clicked on the other one several times but can't find it. It must be buried under all the recent posts.

Kyosho America has a full parts list up. New parts don't have photos yet but at least you can get an idea of what stuff is new vs RB5 (about 90%!). And don't focus on the prices, they are all MSRP.
