The L4/L4 conversions is still a good car. Why would they make a new one? 1/12th is in a stalemate (I had to use the word, I just learned it in history class ) with innovation now, but soon 1/12th will prevail. BMI, CRC, Slapmaster, ETC... are making innovative cars that will change the class completely.

B-Man,

To be honest most people on this board wouldn't really know if there is a new car coming out, and if they did they probably wouldn't or couldn't say if they did know. I have noticed for years now that for the 12th scale market, associated and other manufacturers usually have something new around Ifmar worlds events. Then they get released soon afterwards. This is just my opinion but with the RC8 and the TC5 and improvements to some other cars, I would think that next year might be when they would release something new as its been a few years since they released the 12L4.

Steve

There is a company called silva concepts.. They are the silve brothers who use to run for asociated.. They made an oval car called the x factor.. It is basically an l4 with the updates in geometry it needed.. It has been dubbed the l5 since the team guys for ae can run it..

I had also heard it is very hard to get pan car parts right now from associated.. The way it seems, they may be outing the pan car market all together.. This sucks, since 99% of the pan cars use mostley ae parts..
