    Just got an email from tower. The current Talion is going to be discontinued and a new version is coming out. It's going to be "faster" and red. It also is going to cost $20 more and coupon codes will not be allowed on purchasing it. I wonder if all Arrmas are going to follow suit with not allowing coupon codes soon.

    So it will be the same price as the Kraton? And that sucks about the coupon codes :(

    I guess the V3's are coming out. Wonder what all they will change? Maybe BLX200 system for Kraton / Talion / Outcast, and the Outcast battery tray / chassis guards for all cars? What else will they change? Maybe a decent servo? The current AD15 was good when it was getting fed 7.4v from the BLX180, but with the newer ESC's only having a 6.0v BEC they are slow and weak.

    I kind of wish they would make a 2s version of the Senton, with a good 3660 4 pole 4000kv motor, and give it a diet to get it closer to the SCTE / SCT410 weight. Oh, and 12mm hexes. :)

    Something interesting - low profile shock towers? This seems like an odd choice. I know there is a growing Arrma sub-coulter of speed run guys, but for what I feel is still the Core Arrma buyer - they are the big air bashers. Check out the angle on the shocks now - almost a 45' angle. I wonder how that will effect the bashing big air guys?

    I just noticed the "Coupon discount not allowed by manufacturer for this product" is on there, which @Shiftin2sixth has pointed out, which sucks, but on the plus side, the "WARNING: This product contains a chemical known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects (or other reproductive harm). Exposure through skin contact and ingestion may occur." isn't on this one. Now I can finally eat my rc car without fear of getting cancer.

    Wow. And I know the Kraton is going to be getting all of the same upgrades... looks like im buying another! The talion seems more of a racer, vs the Kraton being more basher oriented.

    I am VERY surprised they did not update the servo.
