C'mon I asked a legit question...I mean they and many other XXX-S users including myself were and still are winning races with the G+ right. IMO the XXX-S is pretty user friendly and thats not to mention it's probably one thee most "forgiving" of all the current touring sedans to drive

So why do I need the "new" car and what can I tell my customers that just bought or want the G+ thats sitting on the shelf ? I sold or will sell you an outdated POS

The new car is made for the racer who cant have anything but the best. It is the car that is made to race in the worlds and such. The xxx-s is made for everyone else. That is how it was explained to me. But yeah there is an entire thread on this under jrxs.

Steve, your question is legit. I have raced Losi vehicles since the very first one back around 1988. I love my XXXSG+ but as of about 2 months ago I was ready to get rid of it for an X-Ray. I have driven severtal guys X-Ray cars and they all do what my Losi has never done and that is consistantly roll through a corner. Granted I am not the best set-up man and I have won many races this year and even lead the points series. But, I believe the new car will have the potential to take my driving one step further without having to drill holes in the chassis or make BK bones for my outdrives and things like that. The XXXSG+ is a great car, but the JRXS in the hands of a good tuner and good driver should be faster and more consistant. My $.02.

No one ever 'needs' a new car. You 'want' a new car. Besides, no one is making you buy it, if your satisfied with the current car, keep it and drive it.
