I am failing to see the point of this release. Pointless car. How many times can you realistically race this car a year? Seems like a release for marketing purposes only, nostalgia will make a lot of people buy it for the many reasons given above...

If you blinged it with the 47 million upgrades from JC it'd end up being cheaper to buy a real life Bugatti Veyron!

I'll pass thanks...

I personally am looking forward to racing it something a bit retro and different I'm sure a 13.5 or 10.5 would be ok ???

I'v raced my Team RC10 a few times indoors at Maritime and goes better than you'd expect for an old car, beat a few modern motor cars

I'm running a Hpi 8.5 with boost and gearbox held up just fine, only mod I did was add a B4.1 slipper and layshaft to the stealth box and its been fine.

I understand the Worlds re re comes with a B4.1 slipper so will be ready to go, Kinwald is running a Reedy 7t in his Worlds car at the Reedy Race so the gearbox seems to pretty bomb proof

Certainly looks quick enough on the video!! Looks pretty nimble on that track for an older car too...

Whats next, the B2 and B3?
I did love the B3 but many favoured the Losi XXX, until the B4 came along and raised the bar significantly.

The body is Associateds interpretation of the RCPS Turbo Mirage. Don't expect to see it until the kit is released. If you want something earlier there is the limited edition Proline Mirage SS which should be available early February.

Agreed 101%!
I may understand the re-release of rc cars (I say "may"..) but definitely think that re-releasing the option parts is pure speculation.
