OK Guy's here goes.
I have seen two team drivers run this car and it looked awsome with so much corner speed which has always been a poor factor with the XXX-S. The shocks that was used were Tamiya (not sure what will be the final shocks though)
The concept car was used at West London on tar mac and was put on pole, this team driver lapped everyone bar the second place man who is an associate driver and only missed lapping him from about 20 feet.
I to saw the car at Donnington park, (on carpet) even thogh it suford a little, it was still the fastest Losi there.
With regards to designing any product it is a progresion on the previous product otherwise whats the point.
I was fortunate enough to serve my apprenticship with Rolls Royce in 1973 (yes I know im old) and had seen many many Mercs BMW'S brought in by the drawing department to pinch a little bit of this and that design wise, so yes, it is an idea to see what other products sort of work and make it work for them.
I do hope this does not afend anypne as I felt it needed to be said
