Hey hey, let's get some activity in this thread. I've been wanting to give this newcomer a shot for a while, and I ended up getting a used one off eBay. Even though I didn't assemble it (obviously), the car seems very well put together, nice fit and finish, and the quality of the parts seems up to par with the Tamiya/Xrays. I like the Tamiya-knockoff dampers, but I've got the real deal so I'll be using those. Planning to run 19T foam on carpet, with 37/128 gearing.
Also really wish the previous owner wouldn't file out the rear battery post slots, because now I'm forced to use tape to strap on my batteries.
Will report back on how the car performs. I used to have almost all the current Tamiya cars excluding the 415, so I'd like to see how this boy stacks up.
