I was at RCX when they had this car, and I talked to the designer and owner of the company. The car they had there was one that has been racing in france and it had the battery pack down the middle. The designer was very cool. He had a very thick french accent so it was hard to understand everything he said but i understood he is an engineer for peugeot in france and he explained how the suspension was better. Apparently he put a lot of time and energy into designing this car, so i wouldnt be too critical until i saw it on a track.
RCInfinity: I touched the car myself, and here is a pic of it at rcx:
It was not in a glass case at all.
Utieh: you seem very critical of the car, but you havent even seen it? How do you know they are being different just to be different? That wasnt the impression I got. And, the battery/trans configuration is different then the pro 3and xxxs. the pro 3 has 2 belts and center pack, and the xxxs has one belt and offset pack. the kx1 is similar, but i think the motor is in the rear, and the belt is longer and runs through more pullys and stuff. the evo has only 1 pully, and 2 diffs, which looked very cool.
i cant believe you guys think this car is ugly. anything that is not the same boring hpi/associated/jokomo/corally/... you know... is great!
