To be fair, you should compare apples to apples.

A standard high-end Tamiya kit (415/Evo) compares favorably to other high-end cars, in terms of price and equipment levels.

The "$400" kits (Limited, MS and MSX versions) are fully optioned-out kits that come with every concievable option already in the box...and can be raced (and win) anywhere at any level without spending one dime on hop-ups. They're MUCH cheaper than buying everything separately.

good point, honestly on the 2004 PRO4, you had to buy almost half of the car again from all the options and strengthening parts necessary to make it work.
2005 version was better but still..

A MSX, or a T2, are definitely more "complete" cars..

not really... the stock Pro4 was already very competative out of the box..any extras was just bling bling... the only thing need was a stronger front bumper.

the MSX I would say is complete..the T2 on the other hand racers here had problems with it.

next to the MSX..The Hara or Surikarn Edition Cylones has everything you need in the box.

$600 is at least the RRP of a competitive car in the UK. Pretty much all the ones worth having are £300+ (over $600!)

They weren't really a factor untill the release of xxx-s. The street weapon did have a few wins, but the FSR & HPI were hardly up front in this era.

It's awesome to see this much excitement out of the AE camp. Maybe if we go to their website and type ".../TC5" or ".../TC5B" we'll see a hidden directory LOL!!!
Just like someone here on Rctech cracked the FTP folder of the T2 pics before XRAY themself release the pictures.........ok, how many HACKER are in Rctech now.........start the hacking.
About pricing....AE never disappointed ppl.......the new belt car, with alum bulkhead, may be some alum hardware......around $350 (street price) I am sure we will see plenty of T2, RDX, 415 MSX on the FOR SALE thread....

If you take a look at the batteries lying next to the car that is a very old pic. I'm sorry, but I doubt that ae drivers would have been running gp 3300s any time in the past year.

That is a picture from the Reedy race this last weekend and those are the prototypes. I was allowed to take a look at them. Those are probably just battery boxes that you're seeing the 3300 on.
