There will always be people who will buy the latest even if there is no big change in the design. They just want the latest!

Next version should be a lot better for me to bite. Otherwise, I would likely just go with an Exotech chassis plate as the most significant improvement shown to date.

I dont think Xray is worried, they are arguably the BEST RC company around.. People who are in the market for the best will consider Xray.

It would cost me almost that much to replace most of the parts that need to be freshened up for another season.
So, 4 years down the road you are out $800 and I am still beating you?

You may not be the smartest man in R/C but lets try to learn something about finance. You could spend all the money you have and it still will not make you a better driver. It may take some time to learn this concept but just keep thinking about it over the years as the money pour out of your pocket. Is the new and improved really worth it?

It doesn'tbother me that some people want the latest toy to have something new to play with. It is a little concerning that there are plenty of people out there that think the changes in the last 3 generations of X-Ray chassis can be felt by anyone but a seasoned racer.
I spend my cash on tyres, batteries and motors. The day I can out-wheel the potential of my car is the day i'll upgrade.

Maybe he's not buying it to make himself a better driver. Some people just like to buy new kits and build them. I myself have bought kits that I just wanted to build to check out how it was engineered. I built them, studied them, raced them, and sold them - some after the first day and had fun doing it. I know people that spend thousands on regular model kits and they don't even move. They just love building the kits. So the guy buys a new Xray kit every time a new one comes out - He builds it, races it, decides whether he wants to keep it and then maybe buys a different kit. Is he taking the money out of your pocket? Why do you care what someone else does with their money?

It's a hobby, people do things differently. Unless it is hurting somebody's race day, who cares if I have one T2 or twelve t3's Some of us like to spend our money.
