I would expect this "new" kit to be the same price as the old since it's just a minor upgrade. The 44.2 is the same price as the 44.1 was before the 44.2 came out.

Looks like the rear tower has been moved forward a bit to give clearance like the mods some have done.

On the ultimate rc site it says February, I don't see any other hints as to release date or cost. I'm definitely going to return mine, otherwise I'll be kicking myself and itching to get my hands on one

The b4.2 is a "new" car according to AE. It's not under the b4.1. Like the rest of the versions were.

Kinda' under whelming but if the car is still selling, why redesign?

Interesting to me is no mention of "Factory Team Graphite plastics". I wonder if they have gone back to FRP?

The B4.2 is not a new car. Not trying to argue or anything but when I have a B4.2 sitting on my table at home and have had it for a few months it is not a 'new' car. It is the same car bagged with a bunch of hop-ups. The geometry is exactly the same, the specs are exactly the same and so on and so on.
