Surprised that it is expensive anywhere. It is a full blown race kit at a budget price

I can say its better fit and finish than my TRF416X, everything went well together, except for the shocks springs and its retainers, they gave the wrong ones which I think is too hard and too long, BUT 3Racing acknowledge this and within a day I contacted them they straight away sending me the correct one for FREE and ship it using EMS. I cant be more happier than their customer service.

Handling wise , on carpet its again beating my TRF, I feel comfortable pushing it hard. It will my main car for now. I just love this car.

Had a couple of them at a big race we had a few weeks back. The drivers seemed pretty happy and I didn't hear of any issues. I'm not a big fan of the color but the car seems to perform and you can't beat the price on the kit or spares.

own the car for a month and really like it, and my lap times are keep on improving with this car.

the aluminum and carbon parts quality are high, and the new kit come with harden plastic arms. The only concern are the plastic ball cups.

many hop up parts available, but is not essential, the only hop ups I see is a must would be some suspension arm blocks, springs, gear diff, and sway bars for setup changes.
