You know, you are not far from the truth.

I think we will see more CNC machined alloy parts in the future due to the fact that they are simply cheaper in the volumes that we are talking here.

Manufacturing an injection molding tool for plastic components eats up 50-60,000$/ easily.

Considering that they would sell probably less than 5000 kits of a certain car, it is way cheaper to have CNC parts done in Asia than building that injection molding tool. Further, with CNC parts, it's a piece of cake to make a running change to a car without dumping a tool and building a new one.

Look at the Serpent 966 or the Velox V10, loads of aluminum....

the tq at the winternats is great but do that at the worlds then i will be impressed!!! My i am mistaken but what car has won the last 3 8 scale worlds championships! owe yea!!!! the kyosho and the 2004 and 2008 1/10 scale worlds the vone rrr evo and in 2006 fuduka only won because toso pit man dropped his car because he was tq and much faster then everyone there and he was 3 laps up on everybody before andrea rossi dropped his car and pulled his anntena tube off of his car. Even with his car running at 60% fudaka still barely beat him.

So mugen can have the winternats and we will keep winning the worlds

2009 1/8 scale worlds championship winner= kyosho m3 wc coming soon!!!!!!!!!!!!

You want to be the best you have to drive the best!!!!!!

I know the truth hurts but soon you all will come to the light
