Not that I am aware of and the car has won at three major events over the past year. The XXXS has been around for years and they continue to make parts for it. I don't see why they would stop making parts for the Type R. There is just no R&D people working on it anymore. They don't really have an onroad team other then Jason Schreffler, Mike Haynes and Larry Fairtrace. These three guys have been the only ones to really figure the car out and get it to work.
JRXS Type R, I have four of them!! ;) ( Yes, I still have them!!)And racing one of them again!!

I do know that the chassis has been out sourced and it was some special graphite that was hard to get. but that they out sourcer was producing chassis. and was going to produce more.
RC50 As you come into this world, something else is also born. You begin your life, and it begins a journey towards you. It moves slowly, but it never stops. Wherever you go, whatever path you take, it will follow never faster, never slower, always coming. You will run, it will walk. You will rest, it will not. One day, you will linger in the same place too long you will sit too still, or sleep too deep. And when, too late, you rise to go, you will notice a second shadow next to yours. Your life will then be over.
