Default Ultrasonic Blue Mica 2.0

Anybody else notice in the brochure that the Ultrasonic Blue Mica color is listed as "2.0?" Anybody have any inside information as to what makes this ver 2.0? Maybe more layers of clear coat? A couple more coats of the color spray? Maybe a different ingredient in the color makeup?

Different color all together. They just wanted to keep it simple and call it 2.0 for NA market

the new USB 2.0, just like Infrared, is a 4 stage paint. silver, clear coat, translucent blue, clear coat. It is much more brilliant and reflective in color than the original USB.

that USB 2.0 looks GOOD! If it has a translucent color, wouldn't that be similar to a "candy" paint job?

That's the information I was looking for. Where did you get this information may I ask. I didn't think it was a whole new color as another person posted. I assumed it was an update in the make up of the color.

Definitely want to see this color in person!

Well worth the addition bucks, IMO. After all, how many RCFs are you going to buy?

Couldn't agree more. Special color for a special car.
