Hopefully the price will come down a bit, seems to be an even ~800$ accross the board after taxes. the MRX5WC looks to be had for around 630$, so an extra 170 for the new chassis.

Remember the 977 Evo Limited is like 820$ with the 977 Evo regular going for 670$

- I think the class becoming a bit more exclusive due to the lack of PR and growth is manifesting itself.

I like the $599 better then $799 and I see that the engine prices have dropped and that is a good thang.

For my thinking, we can affect the chassis prices also.

The high priced Nova engines came down when first Picco and then later OS-engines showed that you can actually win with mid-priced engine. You don't need the high priced version for that.

You can have good price for the older versions... for example the HB R8, which is very good car also. If we all select the cars with 5xx price tags, the 7xx price tags will eventually come down to the same level. Believe me, they will.

Prices will not drop if demand does not increase from new drivers
Manufacturer raise there price knowing that there not going to sell as many kits as they used in the past especially when the competition in 8 scale in the past was only 3 main brands look how many there are now

With most cars after a few months the prices do drop. I expect it will be the same with the MRX6
