Just because a new car is coming out does not mean that your current one needs to go in the trash, it is still competitive. Being slightly optimistic, maybe there will be a conversion kit.

I know!! I just like new and shiny!!

Be interesting to see if it's just a belt drive (minus the floating gearbox) with the same suspension. I wonder how the motor will mount?

I am looking forward to this car as well it should share the same suspension as the current car, but just belt driven. Hopefully we will see it very soon.

But if you do decide to throw away the old one, I'll be hiding in the dumpster.

It's amazing how amx owners are complaining about a new car coming out. Xray drivers can't wait to get a new car each year. They look forward to refreshing there ride. EVOII is good car, keep running.

This is RC, expect new cars at least once a year to keep up with new technology.
