Simply not true. Sure you could pull a Tamiya and release a new car every month, but they operate primarily in larger markets where the demand for new technology is significantly greater than it is here.

In the US, the market is smaller and slower moving with the lions share of the profits being in the RTR sector. For a company concerned with making money (an old concept but one that privately held companies still focus on) that means that designing and releasing a monthly sedan is not nearly as profitable as designing a sedan 'platform' which has several differing varients from RTR to full race. This marketing concept can be seen with both the TC3 and XXX-S.

Will Losi and AE be releasing new sedans in the future? Undoubtedly, however I guarantee that in a small margin market such as the RC industry neither company is in a hurry to do it until they've squeezed the last possible penny out of their current designs and tooling, especially in the current economic climate.

Just my $.02
Griffin, you need to write the forwards in my proposals from now on

And with teeth like that, you can be sure that it will rip and tear right though the competition.

As far as anti squat goes. The question is not can you adjust it, it's whether you Want to chance it.

I'll give Todd props on that one.
