Looks mostly nice quality and design. My main concern is the rx area, looks like futaba 603 won't fit. I also wonder how long the plastic diff gears will last. Why is the ackerman plate mounted bye bushings instead of bearings? The body and wing looks like an afterthought.
The battery holders are off-center (dislike towards saddle packs is just my personal pain).
I don't like moving the the weight of the turnbuckles outside.
The bulkheads are nicer then the average.
I can't see the why the need for 14mm hexes, they are a bigger unsprung rotating mass then 12mm. Do they want to run wheels soft as butter?
Cant see in the specs, what is the gearing range of the motor mount?

And on another note, who the %^&@%^%^* put that stupid javascript on the xray site that redirects to another page when I am at the bottom?

I think they took the b44 platform and made it better. Overall innovation, none. Innovation on individual parts, it seems they did pretty well.

From a looks stand point, its like the guy said above, "Its an Ugly Bastard!!".. However, I believe it will be fast. I dont like the slipper setup, considering todays multi-disk standards, Very plain body no flow,The electronics layout may not work for some. I do like the Murdered look, lol, gear diffs, motor mount, 14mm hex (Durango offeset?)... I will have to see this thing in person to be a believer..

It is about what I expected. I bet it will be the most durable care in the class though. Xray plastic is the best in the business. My only real disappointment is no droop screws. I don't get why it is so hard for 1/10 cars to have droop screws.

I like the look of it, although I think that Schumacher k1 looks more aggressive.

What do you guys think about the "missing" upper rear deck/brace (the support for the rear bulkheads/shocktower)? Fore-aft flex maybe too much?
