ARC have posted more pics of the car on their site.

Not groundbreaking, but very refined. Perhaps the best design of any TC on the market?

I agree, very tidy and a well thought-out design. If the quality is as good as it looks it could be one of the best TCs on the market.

Of course the success will come down to price, parts availability and getting some team drivers to provide help/setups via forums and major race meetings...

I actually saw one built in my LHS, plastic parts look nice. metal machining are not perfect cosmetically but precise enough to hold the car really well. the cost of the parts are really competitive. only time will tell just how durable can it be .

Yes, I had a chance to hold the car on hand. The craftsman is very precision, plastic looks high quality. Saw it running on local track, it was the fastest car running around. It has great amount of steering going into corner quickly. I really don't think T3, 417, TC6 are any faster then this car.

I've build this car. Although design is conventional but
Awesome parts. Accurate fit and nice composite material and metallurgy. Easily put together and no need to enlarge screw holes and suspension arm. Parts fits nicely. A true race kit right out of the box. Instructionn manual need improvent. Parts very cheap

Looks like cso style carbon chassis not full carbon fibre is that right?
Carbon fibre top and bottom, fibre glass in the middle? ??
Thats what it looks like @their web side pics.

This car looks very nice...looks like they got a lot of stuff right during the design. I am really curious about the quality of the aluminum parts and pricing/availability.

You are right but they are saying that alloys are full quality where the rest is Carbon not carbon fibre if thats a mixed chassis with fibre glass its not good couple of hard crashes=permanent tweak
P.s I might be wrong

Sorry but this car looks like an s411 rip off.
Why couldn't they do a shaft drive, or something original!!
I'll be suprised if this car takes off.

Info from the manufacturer tells me that the chassis is 2 layers of glass fibre between carbon fibre. As there are minimum cutouts in the chassis this allows it to flex more than a full carbon fibre chassis, which when originally tested did not give sufficient grip in low grip conditions. By having just two cutouts, testing showed that this construction did not lead to any possible increase in tweak resulting from crashes.

This model is available now in the UK from rc-direct
