All great points, but I am a little worried its going to be alot better, who really knows, than I'll have this nagging feeling to have to get the "newest" thing.

This sport is like a DRUG!

Set date...at least the set date that I am told is:








MARCH, ok no more talk about when the date of release will be. This is from an official source here in the US

As for pricing of new kits the All Mighty DOLLAR is worthless over seas, against the EURO. Many over seas company's have had to adjust pricing. The value of the Euro has gone up over 20% against the dollar in the last 3-4 months.

I am starting to lose faith in these guys and I am a very loyal Xray owner. Unless FK just came in, I dont know where they can be had. A number of people here in Ohio were looking for them and had no luck anywhere. Now the kit is discontinued and we are looking at a March release for a new one. Sounds pretty stupid to me. What a way to take advantage of that Extreme RC shootout result....make it as hard as possible to obtain the kit!!! I for one doubt that the "prototype" car will be the FK05. I think it will be the current FK with the bulkheads that were on Josh's car and possibly the xrc chassis and a couple of the new hopups. I think you are at least a year away on the "prototype"...just my opinion.

How frustrated must RC America be.....agree to become the distributor...then have the customs issue...get kits in and they are out of stock within a week or so....second wave.....and again no kits.

Hey guys, theres no point in arguing what the 05 will look like, you've all seen pictures of it by now (remember DHI?).

If anyone thinks otherwise, I'm happy to take bets

As for the price jump, there's not much Xray can do about the changes in exchange rates, is there?

I do agree that it was not a good idea to stop production of the FK before the 05 was released though.
I think that this combined with the price jump is going to be a major setback for Xray. Especially in the US.

I think the new 05 edition has got to go some way to beat the FK

even if it looks flatter the FK has proven it self
Also did the x-ray resort back to a near std Fk at the worlds after trying all these tricky dickie parts cos they didn`t do what they expected
