        Iíll still be buying Elites and ARC. Man I remember the early 90ís when everything was 1 of 5000 or 1 of 20,000. Now we struggle to get 1 of 500. 1 of 2500 was a rare piece. And let me tell ya, some of the details on those cars were hideous. I bought em because I love racing. Iím excited for a new era in diecast. (Itís just those plastic chassis that rub me wrong. But I will buy them as I do now.)

          For me, it'll depend on several things.....the driver, the scheme, autographed or non autographed, raced win, special finish, production #'s..

            The plastic chassis makes the HO cars feel a lot lighter, even the new trucks feel a little heavier.

              Probably nothing w/ ELITE changes. Don’t own a single ARC currently for a reason, and now I’ll be forced to buy one in an ELITE box. My emotions will probably blow over though. I tend to think the ELITE DNP list will be just as long in 2018 as it is now.

                Elite , they are good enough for me, they sit behind glass displayed in a case. I don't get those who are crying over the tethers. How many times do you actually open and close the hood and trunk? Or do you just sleep better at night knowing it's there?

                  People can cry/moan all they want but I'm glad Lionel is forward thinking and making changes now to stay viable in the future. I am willing to bet they hate to make these changes, so instead of whining about how you will buy 0 cars...why don't you try to recruit more people into buying diecast?

                      I might try and pick up Chase Elliott's and Trevor Bayne's (if offered) standards in Elite. I will be buying more 1:24s next year though.

                        think of it as a upgraded arc

                          I'll be buying more cars most likely. The cheaper prices will be great.

                            I am new here but I am looking forward to this personally. I hope to buy Elites this year to add to my collection. I love collecting but I've never really been able to buy Elites. I've got about 300 1/64 and 26 1/24 ARC
                            I know it's not a huge price difference for 2018, but, it's enough to make me maybe afford the Elites a little easier.
                            I'll usually get 1 or 2 of my fav 1/24 ARC each year and then a bunch of the 1/64 cause I can get so many more for the money.
                            I must say, I am in awe at some of y'alls collections!!
                            Really liking this group and learning a lot following this forum !! Thanks

                              Welcome to the forum sir! Glad to hear youíll be able to get a few of the Elites you want with the new pricing structure. Looks like youíve got off to a good start with what youíve already collected.
