Mugen? no way!
Xray? It's old!
HPI? Not in mainstream!

I have the center wt. Are the alloy pulleys for durability or less friction or both?

Dan:

You are correct and hadn't thought about it like that. Maybe like others have said they will include low profile shock towers and shocks, but it's nothing major... Would they gain anything by trying a new model this side of the Worlds, and what else can any brand do apart from laying engine over to lower the centre of gravity even further.

I was surprised that there was no EC version of 747 after winning EC in 2013.

Mainly less friction but must be coupled with the low friction belts. The metal pulleys are also more durable and less likely to strip belts.
