The kits only sell to a very small part of the hobby at best, and the licensing is out of control for what they want, remember everyone wants their cut, when I was one of the owners of SLIXX decals we quit doing NASCAR because the amount of money they wanted for licensing was getting "stupid high" plus a lot of requirements to boot.. and the profit was not there, plus now it's gotten so bad to the point of having to get licensing for every tiny decal on the car, I can't see a quarter of a million dollar plus investment on totally new tooling for a current NASCAR kit, the return is not there, The old stuff yes that would be great, but don't count on seeing it, even the die cast is dead pretty much.just saying thats all.
