The "Predtor X10" is the new one, which will be released in March/April 2005
It's the evolution of the car used by Brian Kinwald to win The Winternationals against Mark Pavidis and all the usual superstars. William Mitcham TQ'd a round of the Worlds at a US track (The Raunch) and Derek Furutani won the US Nationals.
It definitely does work on US Tracks, and is devastatingly quick. Older versions use to have strength problems, which showed on some tracks in the US with big jumps. Later versions and particularly with the new stronger X10, that is no longer the case.
The Predator was designed from scratch as a pure off-road car. Its design is very low to create a low Centre of Gravity and to reduce aerodynamic drag. Its looks are also deceiving, because it has plenty of suspension travel and whatever ground clearance you need.
