I have never seen such a long thread for a car that hasn't yet come out!
That said, no other car has, in the same hands made a finals in mod and stock at the ETS - like laptev has done. Nor has regularly made a finals at the ets without a huge team like Xray and TAmiya etc.
I drive the t3'11, but I ain't gonna look at a new kit until I see one of these on a local track.
The rumour mill about team drivers from other cars having a blast and beating pb times over their own cars is gathering at some pace.
I am convinced that it's the suspension that is the biggest factor on this car:
1. low centre of gravity;
2. dynamic castor (I think like the trinity switchblade 1/12 - my favourite rc car)
Everyone I know that has driven the 1/12 switcblade would vouch for the fact that if you know how to get the front and left parallel, and get used to setting it up, it was literally the best front suspension, and never bettered in terms of performance.
I am concerend that the 750USd starting price may unfortunately be a bit too steep - perhaps 600usd, and it will tempt a lot more of the curious out there
