Looks like they made the aluminium side plates an upgrade part, and the new ESC doesn't have a fan. That explains why the older side plates were listed as discontinued a little while ago. Nice body. The price seems a lot cheaper at $260, unless that's a promotional price.
Well,at £233, I'm afraid that it can stay in the shops. I'm quite happy with my upgraded Fury as is,especially now that it's sporting a new set of clothes.
It depends on the manufacturer. Traxxas 2wd monster trucks, basic parts, not... Stampedes have been in production for nearly 20 years or so. Unique parts, like the Monster Jam bodies were hard to get within a year of them stopping production. My kid wanted a Max D body for his stampede, and they were going for $150+ for the body alone...
For the Arrmas, I don't think they'll go obsolete any time soon, since they haven't built an all new model since they were introduced. The Fury is just an update of the Mojave, and they have just been updating the Fury since it was introduced (2013, 2014, 2016). If you have an older model, you can install the updated parts, usually without any huge changes.
What is the bad side of composite diffs with metal gears? the encasing of metal gears is plastic? not really sure because I haven't gotten to stripping down my car yetFinally it is here!!!
The all new Fury:
+Nice looking body
+Nice new bumpers
+3800kV 4-pole motor
+Upgraded ESC without a fan (which can be a good thing)
+Nice looking and more scale wheels and tires
+ Nice new transmitter
-Composite diff with metal gears?
-No more aluminium site plates
If the price stays under €299,- here in Europe, it can be a winner.
Let's see what happens!
