Reason is the b4 didn't need much else to make it better, so I really don't see what else they could have changed/added that wasn't expected or already done.........

They'll have a "rolling" change. They'll start shipping out the new when the old are gone. Or, they'll take back the old and start shipping the new towers.

Not to mention, the car does NOT need a chassis change since the +8. AE would make a big mistake running a completely new car this close to the worlds.

Sweet! I'll be buying one. Been holding out on giving my old beat up b4 any love in hopes of the new kit coming out soon.

My WC is about 8 months old. Most of the plastics are new besides the chassis it'self. Having a "fresh" car is my reasoning behind getting a new one.

Price wise my guess would be on the lowside of $275, high side of no more then $350..........I'm guess it'll be around $299 for the kit though.......

Damn I have a brand new B4.1 worlds sitting here unbuilt. Now must decide whether to return it and wait, or build and upgrade as I go. Financially probably smarter to return it and wait but I wanna race the thing. The only thing that really seems necessary is the big bores
