Welcome to the competitive market!! There's really no reason a LHS has to carry these cars anyway. At our local track we have X-Ray, HPI, Losi, AE, and Corally drivers. The hobby store carries HPI, LOSI and AE. Why? Because the parts don't go stale two weeks after they arrive. If you run a car your LHS doesn't carry parts for, you get the privelege of stocking those parts for yourself. I really can't blame any LHS for leaving cars outta the loop that are Manufacturer Direct Distribution only, or are obsoleted by their own manufacturer 2 weeks after their release.

By the same token, I can't blame the manufacturers' for constantly evolving their products in order to keep up. It's the nature of the game.
