I guess we all know this but I'll say it anyways. Yes, it's way too bad that this casting no longer has an opening hood and the base is no longer metal. But oh well, if that's what it takes to keep it in the mainline, that's just the way it has to be, bummer. Well I assume we will still see the old features in premium versions, hopefully. Nonetheless, this version still looks nice in red with retro-styled flames and deco!
