+1.
Theres a few new rides this season and have to pull the trigger on what to buy.
747 is my number 1 but with the new nt1 and still having all the spares from my nt1, that would make life a lot easier.
Capricorn also updated their car for 2014

I plan on making the purchase this week. So, hopefully there will be a upgrade kit or the changes aren't so big

The 747e is an electric version on the 747. So unless you plan on running electric you don't need to worry about an upgrade kit Joe.

The current platform of the 747 works and is very strong. The only complaint I had was weight. Could slim down a bit.

I am suprised an Evo or TE hasn't already been released. Serpent were quick to do this with the 733 and even back with the 720 it received an updated kit every year (aka Xray).

Bundy remember this is a car that doesn't use many optional parts. Mainly only the center weight and alloy pulleys. So to offer an Evo what would be put in without making changes to the existing car.

I'm convincing myself that there will be a new car mid-season ready for the worlds. The 747 is almost 2 years old now. Time for an update - 2yr product cycle is about the norm.
