Default rcb.2

Like I said Im sure glad I didnt run out and buy all the upgrades like so many of you did lol. I think it was a little dirty of AE to put out an upgrade kit and then several months later put out a new car that not only comes with all the new upgrades but appears to have some differences.

Doesn't really matter to me, only thing I bought so far are the towers and a BCE + 3mm chassis, get the rest as needed or as I want. I'm fine with it, not like an upgraded B is obsolete.

I hear you and to each his own. I need to find out all the diffrences with the upgrade kit and what comes on the 8.2. How much total will it cost to fully upgrade a rc8b to a rc8.2.

Agreed... It looks like the kit wil come with a second version of the current updated parts. I will still get the upgraded parts now and the kit in September, with my driving skills I need a backup...

Checked the pics of the towers on the new kit and the updated towers on my RC8B and they are the same, the rest of the parts who knows but the towers are not different.
