rip off. it's a brand new kit, they're taking advantage of the early adopters.

I think they selling MSRP like Rainbow Ten.

Wait, actually Rainbow Ten is cheaper than eTamiya. $457.90 Champ should have it below $400.

Well some people just can't wait so they are willing to pay the higher price. We have them on the website right now for pre-order at $374.99, but I have a feeling it might drop to right around $360 once we receive it.

This is why I'm being patient this time and waiting for Steve/SpeedtechRC to get it instead of Rainbow10. And it's not like I need it right now. And the $100 or so that I'll save is a much smarter move. It just means I'll get to spend more at Steve's shop hehe..

Still looks like an Evo 3 to me....only the motor and batteries have switched. I should just buy the lower plate and call it an EVO IV.

The original evo 3 did as well I think. It came with some Type A tires.
