You could order one through Wheelspinmodels.co.uk. It is priced at 58.49 or approximately $92.91 plus shipping. With the exchange rate being as high as it is, they probably won't sell them in the US for a little while longer.

It comes out to around $100 shipped, I can have 2 Cirtix SCR's for that

Ill get one when its available in the US and reasonably priced, the Reventon S goes for $48 and is basically the same as the Reventon SCR exept for the software updates and set-up box which is optional for the SCR, I dont see a reason why the SCR would cost more then the S.

They are all equally matched in performance. None of them have any kind of programmable timing. Some of them have adjustable brake settings and you can disable/enable reverse. Each one of them have different sized cases. The Novak Edge and Novak Mongoose are the smallest. The LRP A.i. is the largest.

Just out of curiosity, does the USVTA Rules prohibit taking the ESC circuitry out of its plastic case before mounting it inside the car? I have seen some R/C folks do this (mostly in their F1 cars) to save some space and a tiny amount of weight.

it takes a lot of weights to get any tc up to 1550g so I see no point of removing the case to save weight.

Considering the nature of the class, I would not be in favor of this for a number of reasons:

1) increased risk of damage to the ESC (and thus increased cost to race if you do damage ESC and/or void warranty by taking it apart)

2) it makes identifying the esc more difficult

3) it would only "save" a few grams, but this is a weight controlled class where "most" cars have to add weight to meet tech, so you'd just have to add lead elsewhere.

4) there is no significant advantage - it doesn't make the racing closer, it doesn't make it easier to get into VTA, it doesn't reinforce the idea that this is a drivers class (and not an equipment class), .....
