I've gotten tired of the cheap Smart parts body, and I'm going to upgrade. Also suggest frames, I'm also looking into getting a new frame

EDIT:: strage is supposed to be strange for the third poll choice

wait for the Lucky 5.1 and stage 6 frame to decide.

I'm saving for the stage 6 myself...

5.1

ive been waiting for that to come out before i build an ion... but then the mini came along and now the decision is hard again.

its the economic choice already:

new autococker threaded breach = 50 bucks. oring sealed rear = 37 bucks new body = 80-120

all of those are in the 5.1 for 100 bucks.

Wait so the 5.1 will be threaded for autococker barrels?

Yeah I personally voted for that body myself, I think it looks amazing, but I'll hold off till I see the 5.1, has lucky said anything about what they guessed the price would be?

No...prices were not mentioned but I can say that there are going to be a "massed produced" version as well as "Limited Edition" versions.

My Stage 5 was $220 + shipping via UPS...so a similar cost can be anticipated for the 5.1 Limited Editions. I would think the "mass produced" versions would be cheaper but how much? I don't know. They should be releasing soon because a few weeks ago, the bodies were being machined and then annoed so keep an eye out...
