Totally understandable. I'd be pissed too.

Oh well, just be glad you didn't invest in an RC8.2, only to end up on a neverending quest to find the right combo of Frankenmods which can't even get the Ryans a win..., leading to talk of a new one coming out against the backdrop of an emerging awareness that no combination of Frankenmods will really make the RC8.2 what it should have been in the first place.

@Todd or Adam

What a nice Car! I love it!! Nice job!

In your TLRACING site (I can't post link this is my first message) I read: "Myriad of option parts included-Front and rear adjustable hinge pin mounts, lightweight 48T spur gear, lightweight outdrives in all three differentials, aluminum bearing inserts, and +1mm rear hexes"

What does this mean? The rear is more wide on 3.0 or in package we have optional +1mm rear exes?

The chassis is more flexible than the 2.0 chassis or it is the same because it is hard coated?

Excuse me for my bad english!!

Me too. Just might go mugen this year! Like Jerome said, I have 4 losi 8ights and now they'll all just be bashers because I'd lose so much money on them if I wanted to sell.

This is the same thing that happened when they went from the 1.0 to the 2.0. They made just enough changes that you had to buy a new car. Everyone thought they would just be able to upgrade and it was not that. I need a new chassis and my 2.0 is beat up. I will buy this when I get a good deal on one.. Price should come down a bit once released..

Hello,
I'm not Adam or Todd but I think I can help you with some of your questions...

Yes in the 3.0 package you will receive +1mm rear hexes. Previously, these were options on the 2.0 but will now come standard in the 3.0 buggy.

The chassis is more flexible. It's the same thickness as the 2.0 however it has been milled out more than the 2.0 to increase flex and help the car handle better especially in the rough and bumpy parts of the track.

The 3.0 with all the changes/improvements and upgrades included is really going to be an exciting buggy to race with!

I hope this helps!
