The Million Dollar Question for PE

So the PE boys released the skinny on the new hotness that is the Geo 2, and there is a lot of excitement. Alot of this stems from the new propshaft and drivetrain that the GEO2 has and we've seen fitted into GEO's/SL91's.
The big question is a two part:

Will the GEO2 Drivetrain be available for sale seperately and if so when and what price.

I am hoping that Jack/Nicky T or someone from PE can pop on and put this one to rest. I for one will be picking up a GEO2 but whether or not the new drivetrain is available will affect whether or not I sell my Geo.

Thanks in advance.

nah. That is my Ego for sale in my sig.
I gotta sell something to get the Geo2, and the Ego 10 is worth more then my heavily damaged liver, so that has to go on the block.

Back to the question for the PE boys.....

When will the drivetrain be available and for how much?

I stand corrected. I misread that. My mistake.

I doubt they're going to answer your question yet. Being as the Geo2 hasn't even been released.

If I were PE I wouldn't release it for at least 6 months after the Geo2 hit selves, maybe more depending on the demand for Geo2's.

But they may be a little nicer than I am.

The Geo2 drivetrain will be available soon. It will cost $1250 and come with a free Geo2.

LMFAO!!! That was f'ing funny. But to the mans question, i to have wondered the same if the bolt and core would be sold separately at a later date.

But Xluben, that was funny.

I'm taking it based on prior PE product that the new geo internals will be better in areas that matter then the old internals.

I know that some (like yourself) may think that it is jumping the gun a bit, but to each their own. I'd prefer to have the latest and greates from PE, so for me that means GEO2 drive engine and I'd like to know whether I am going to need a new GEO to get that or whether I can swap it in the Geo I have.

As for not for a while, I hope that is not the case, and they at least get the GEO2 drvietrain out by mid-summer... but we'll need to wait on that I guess...

You could always sell your gun, and buy another used Geo later. Not like they will be more expensive later...

That is likely the route I will go. Especially since the Geo's value is just going to sink a bit more witht he officials on the Geo 2.

not true. there are many other differences that separate the geo2 from the original besides just the internals.

Indeed, not to mention that PE is in the business of making money. If oftering a Geo upgrade kit would be profitable, they will offer it. Depends on whether they can spare the machining time and whether the price people are willing to pay is substantially larger than the cost to produce the kit.

Not to mention that not everyone already has a Geo, so for those people you can market the Geo2, but for those with a Geo, you can market the upgrade. Why not get some cash from both your current customers and your future customers?

As pballa stated, while upgrading the Geo might take away from some Geo2 sales, to actually get *all* the Geo2 features, you still have to buy a Geo2, so it might not cut in to the sales all that much - it all depends on how much people want all the features of the new marker. You could also argue that there are people who can't afford the Geo2 but could afford to upgrade their Geo, so you gain revenue on the upgrade parts that you would otherwise lose in trying to sell the Geo2 to those people.

I'm not saying whether Planet will actually sell these parts for the Geo or not, as quite simply, I do not know, but I wouldn't say that it was beyond question.
