Not a mini. It has an adjustable wheelbase both front/rear and left/right and can extend to regular 1/10 scale.

Nope, the max wheelbase is 225mm, not long enough for 10th TC.

I read a release somewhere about this car. The whole point of the laydown front shock setup is to achieve sports car bodies that are true to scale. Apparently they couldn't get the correct hood height with traditional shock layouts. I think it looks great. If they're cheap enough they could be like the Slash class in offroad. Scale is back.

I don't really consider that low. Not outrageous, but certainly not cheap. It's not like it's RTR.

I dont think they are going to let you run that against Tamiya M- chassis cars. Personally I would still be stoked to have one but, Im just wondering about misplaced enthusiasm on your part.
