Davo, by top guns you mean the recent top 10 at the world champions? You can either go visit *ahem* 3hobby.com and click on "Contents" ... you'll see some info there. Or go to Sgrid.com and look in the on-road conference.

This year's world championships finished with 2 kinds of cars - Serpent 710 and Kyosho V-One-RRR and 2 brands of engines - the Sirio and the Serpent Mega.

This is why I think they're either closing down or stopping Serpent stuff.

Yes ... and although I know Gourry to be honest and impeccable with service, I somehow doubt that she is getting her supply of 710s THAT cheap. Something is still not right ... unless its a typo caused by either misuse of the RING or there's a aberration in the matrix again.

I was on a 7-hour flight. Had to switch off everything on that Continental flight so someone took advantage and messed with the matrix.

Yeah agreed. I think Brett needs the RING most at the moment. But it's not with me. Will somebody with the RING pass it to Brett? <hint, hint Onkel Sow>
I don't have it. Mark pinched it when he came over. He also still haven't returned my telescope!

I think its just a marketing stunt to atract potential new custommers.
I think they calculated that at most they would sell a couple of the cheap priced cars, but the total pagehit would be considerably higher thus atracting new custommers....
