It's only about a $100 difference between sedan & 1/8th depends on the brand Sedan prices range from $400 to $600 1/8th almost the same
no for motors you can get a Novarossi RX21 for around $400 look around on the price of a nova 12 & then how much is the difference $40-$50 cmon now if you get a tuned 12 what's the price between $400-$500

Yep Turbo

I think you ve nailed it ... good old market forces ... we are dumb enough to pay it so they are smart enough to charge it.

I am in the UK and the difference in kit price is a minimum of $150 (Edam @ $500) up to around $300 (Serpent @ $900)

Ill staywith my MRX4 for a while yet!
