I have some pictures but the site dosen't allow me to post links yet.
You can just post a non url text. (like putting a space in between)

Are you going to test the car before TCS?
Race ready weight would be nice.

I got mine all built as well with the std shock position, easy build, only down part is no hex screws and plastic wheel nuts, so those are some recomended hop ups

Car is looking pretty cool. I might have to ditch the TA05R and get one of these. I can't wait to get some real track feedback.

how does the feel of the new frp chassis compare to a crp option chassis by tamiya? as stiff or pretty close to it?

Does the front shock tower come with it? Or do you have to buy an optional front shock tower? Looks sweet!

I also take it that the arms and castor blocks are the cheap plastic ones and not hard/graphite arms?

The part no. on the arms are the same as the TB03 so it's the normal plastic ones.

Any shake down report yet?

Ahhh hell, maybe I should just get one pre-ordered on SpeedTech..

Will a Novak Ballistic motor fit in there? You know how the motor tabs aren't exactly at the end of the case.

Ran the car today in tcs race, and car was very nice and easy to drive, was running gt2 with black can and the car handels very well and quick acceleration with the gear diffs, just got to find the perfect setup for the track we run on, but the manual setup is pretty OK, just needs some minor tweaks.

I raced the car at TCS in Kingston, ON this weekend and I was totally impressed. The with stock setup, a front spool, and Tamiya B-Type tires the car was pretty good but the rear was a bit loose on entering the the corner of the asphalt track. I moved to blue springs in the front from the standard yellow and decreased the rear droop and the car was hooked up. I ended up placing 5th overall and I have very little experience driving a touring car. In experienced hands this car would of won.

Because of the battery is place from the bottom the chassis is like a tube which makes it very ridged like a double deck car. I also would say the car is lighter than a TA05v2, I will get you the exact weight of my car later today.

I cant make any direct driving comparison to a TA05 since I never owned one but I like like car better than my old HPI Cyclone S.
