We are small company now.
Maybe in future after we become stronger we will design more affordable version.
Coming from another manufacturing industry - I can appreciate the cost of molds. Racing higher-end RC cars for a few years now, I can appreciate high-quality components and I hope that Awesomatix's car has a long life of development and sales in front of it. Not that they are at the same level - however, who remembers the exotic cars that came to North America from all over the world in the late 90's / early 2000's. From my recollection, that was the pinnacle of TC. Let's hope that this chassis will help bring in some interest from the egg-head engineering world and further develop our hobby.

Best-of-Luck to Awesomatix - and if it is the future of RC then I am sure the volumes purchased will help offset the investment into new equipment to make these cars available to the general public at a much more affordable cost.

Velocitygt was at our club today and the Awesomatix 700 made it's Australian debut.
What an Awsome!! car, it was a buzzz just watching it go around the track.
I think there will be a lot more people with this car soon, it's just that good.

Hey guys,

Build was fantastic...Instructions are absolutely perfect and easy to follow. Its amazing how many times you complete a section and then sit there shaking your head because Oleg's design for that component is so much better than any other kit out there. The build does take longer than any other TC because nothing is conventional and you are doing it for the first time.

Had first run on the weekend.... Wow

Used Denis Zuikov's setup for low grip carpet as our track is low grip asphalt.

Ended up with the fastest lap of the day by 2 tenths in modified and 3rd overall (bit of bad luck with crashes etc).

Amazing kit...completely satisfied. Needless to say a lot of onlookers were very impressed as we have some very high caliber drivers in our modified class.
