Default What post-2000 rc cars are destined to become classics?

We all know the original gold-tub RC10. JRX2, Clod Buster, Bruiser, Porsche 959, Avante, Optima, Ultima, Schumacher Cat, RC250, Kyosho Dash, RC10L and many others from the golden age of rc are universally recognized as bona fide classics either because they created their genre or because of their innovation or because of any number of other reasons.

But what about others from the year 2000 onwards and indeed into the present? What rc's are on their way to become future classics? Again, looking for true blue-chip classics not runners up. Should the TF2, the Revo or Slash, or the Infraction be on that list, etc, etc? Cast your vote and explain why.

Default Corally Asuga XLR, Arrma Talion EXB, Arrma Vendetta.

Asuga addresses the “too much power” issue in 1:8 buggies by being as heavy as a truck with a larger wheelbase than such a truck, has a chassis and bracing system that seems inherently stronger and lighter than everything else. (By shape, not materials, it could be even stronger with 7075).

Talion combines the durability of an Arrma EXB basher with the speed and handling of Corally cars, and has a lot of upgrade potential if it somehow isn’t good enough.

Vendetta is a 3s 1:8 scale that exceeds the speed of a lot of 6s cars because it is very light, and is also much cheaper than said 6s cars with a similar footprint. (Redcat Shredder could be considered an off road equivalent, it is a 1:6 that weighs less than a lot of 1:8 cars and gets good speed and handling on a cheap power system).

any of the nitro monster trucks that were popular 15-20 years ago. specifically the original Losi LST. it had features like reverse that was rare at the time.
if they ever stop making them im sure the original Tmaxx and Savage would be sought after. they were iconic in there day and the revelry between the 2 was heated.
iv already noticed people looking for black plastic traxxas trucks (stampede's/ruslters/bandits). not sure why, they're absolute crap.
the RC10GT2 and Losi NXT's have a cult fallowing that seems to be slowly growing.
the HPI RS4 2 and Nitro RS4 2's already have a cult fallowing that may expand at some point. waiting to see if that carries over to the RS4 MT/Nitro MT.

i don't think today's cars will be looked at as collectable in the same way that an original RC10 is. peoples relationship with the cars have changed from being a workbench hobby that required you have skin the game to a toy with hop up potential. we also have a bigger market with higher production numbers and things change and get replaced much faster. so we aren't spending as much time with one specific car or platform nor are we starved for media about it. so people aren't building sentiment about it.
