Ok...so what's the deal, XRAY? I maybe the only one, but why in forever did you come out with an 1/18 Nitro Sedan? I *know* it is not a big class in the US compared to Gas Truck, Electric Buggy, Electric Truck, and 4WD Off-Road electric buggies. You've swept up and swallowed the competition in the TC and 1/8 buggy markets, so why not produce something where you know there is a following...like Gas Truck, Electric Buggy, etc... Just makes no sense to me. Please explain...I guess you could say it's innovative, but it also diversifies the hobby, which is something that, IMHO, is definitely not needed these days.

I'm purely speculating, but....I think that:

A. the NT18 project is a side project...something someone was toying with that was given a trial run while not consuming a huge amount of the engineering department's time
B. the NT18 is marketable, and only a small percentage of RC hobbyists are racers a LARGE number buy based on the cool factor
C. Why not diversify the hobby? what appeals to one is often unappealing to others...if this helps bring more people intot he hobby then it's worthwhile...
D. Who says they're not working on a Gas Truck, Electric buggy, Nitro TC, etc????
