Not to mention by the time you make your $450+ RC8B competitive you are running Kyosho this, Mugen that, and Losi this. Why can't AE actually produce a car that is designed to run their car with thier parts? Talk about ridiculous.

Like I said before I am not here to defend HB but if you are going to come on this HB thread hating....please get your facts straight.

As far as price goes....these cars will be sold at leading price competitive retailers for under $400.

I checked out distributor cost and it's a little higher than I was expecting. You're going to be paying anywhere from $449 to $499 depending on your dealer.

HB sponsorship will be less.

Sold!!!!!! but thats after the bottom small print line that some of these parts are prototype and might not be included. LOL, seriously this looks like some nice upgrades so I am not selling it short. I can't see it being 100.00 over the original kit as the chassis , hubs and shocks would put it over that.

This thread is not even a day old yet, and just about 5 pages long. Guess more people are interested in HB now than before.

Im not here to bash so dont take this the wrong way. But dont most of you HB guys technically already have the hara edition with the upgrades you guys have already done? Also I think HB waited to long to release the hara car. Should have done that well over a year ago
