Why switch? Will not make you faster, but will make your pocket book empty fast. Hopefully your not in the US. No one sell the parts unless you go direct to Nemo. Itís a total dumpster fire unless your part of the Nemo race team. Plus I always see them having trouble keeping parts and kits in stock.

I'd like to switch to the agama simply because i think its really interesting. It does get boring seeing the same designs being updated every car release... However this is a massive change in my opinion. If it is good and drives adequately, im interested in switching to it to have a new radical design and support that type of design.

Im in the uk and plenty of people run agama stuff and nemo racing is based here too so parts and support shouldn't be a problem

k yeah different story across the pond. I would probably run the agama if I lived there to. Lee said end of the year on release. Was looking at again and really would like to drive one. I would consider an ebuggy.

FYI, parts supply for Nemo USA is fine , no worse than any other manufacture , actually itís better than one of the big brand names Ö..

as far as kits , yes they are hard to come by but itís not the fault of Nemo USA, itís a vendor issue with getting certain parts for kits, and once again, this is effecting multiple other brands as wellÖ.

I myself am anxious to try the N1, but itís gonna be hard to beat the current A319 platformÖ

as said above several companies are struggling for parts. with a new car coming out I don't blame them for not producing the 319 kits right now.

I run Kyosho and have had zero issues getting parts or kits for that matter.

Post pandemic the argument that companies are struggling to keep parts in stock is No longer valid. Agama not having parts or kits is nothing new. I knew several people that were sponsored by them and quit running the car because they could not get parts. Iím actually pretty amazed they are still in business.

Letís see if they can make that geometry works and competitive . JQ said that he doubts that itís going to work this design. Letís see, itís the most interesting change in a decade. At least they are trying something different.

MICKEY- no longer valid are you crazy??? have you seen use car prices right now? STILL CRAZY due to covid BS, we have a hell of a time getting REAL car parts still due to availability so yes it is MOST DEFINITLY effecting the r/c world as well. also 90% of your comments in here are negative, if you don't like the car/brand then GTFO of the thread and troll another page.

I work in manufacturing. Anyone who thinks things are back to normal involving anything supply chain related has no idea what they're talking about. Turns out when you're running everything as lean as possible you don't have spare capacity to catch up for a very long time. Not uncommon for things we need to have lead times of 6 months to over a year.

I just want people to stop drinking the kool aid and admit they have issues with keeping parts and kits in stock. If Kyosho had an issue I would be first to call them out on it, but they donít so I have nothing to call them out on. I thought they actually did when they sold out of the mp10e couple weeks back, but now they are back in stock so non issue. Letís be real though, Iím sure your a sponsored by Nemo and therefore canít actually give an honest non bias opinion.

So since itís not a problem, I want to by a new Agama buggy. Where can I order one???? And no I donít really want to want until the end of the year for the new N1.
