OFNA Re-releases The OB4 (I Must Be Doing Something Right)

[church voice] What a joyful day! The RC manufacturers have really been shining upon us. The have blessed us once again with the rerelease of classic! The glorious OFNA OB4 has returned to us. [/church voice] I really wanted one back in the day until I got my hands on a Z10 Pro. That was the lowest quality touring car kit I have built to date. After I got my RC Labs 777 I was over the whole mid motor thing. I was however, secretly intrigued by the pivot ball suspension. Despite it being quite popular with nitro touring cars, it is a rare feature on an electric touring car. I have a Yokomo GT-4 that was purchased with the intent to make it an electric PBS car but the box of many parts turned up a mint Yokomo 200mm RTH (Racing Truck Head) body that was made for the GT-4. It sits in a box awaiting its fate, a nitro shelf queen, a project, or sold to fund another idea. We need to be back on topic. That topic is the new OFNA JL10e Drift (still a wack name). Did I tell you that some retailers have it listed for $89.99? Oh snap 1997 prices yo! I don't know what I'm buying myself for Christmas this year. I was nearly settled on a TA05 Ferrari FXX but the low price of this puppy is screaming "buy me". 80% assembled is telling me to get the Tamiya. Maybe I will make enough money to buy both. Or maybe instead of buying gifts for other people I'll just lay low this holiday season. I can pretend I went on vacation and just hide out in the basement playing with RC cars. OK I do that anyways.
