3Racing has been around for a while. They make lots of hop up parts for lots of chassis. In the last couple of years they have started putting out full chassis. Sakura Zero and XI, F109, FGX and upcoming F113 to name some. Nice quality and incredible prices. The only downside is that there are only a few importers to the US. But, in my experience, ordering direct from Hong Kong only takes a couple of days longer than ordering from the west coast (I'm in ATL) and shipping cost is comparible.

Nice. I'm mostly off road so I don't know much of the on road. I have a Cen ct-5 but as soon as I figured out the hop up market was non existent for cen its been collecting dust. That was about 5 years ago. I'm getting back into the hobby and thinking about getting a brushless system and a few kits to use it in. Putting kits together is probably my favorite part of this hobby.

I was at Hobbytown getting paint and I love putting kits together. That's when I realized out of their entire stock (which was quite alot), there were only 2 kits on the shelves. Everything else was RTR! Times sure have changed. Thankfully this car comes both as a kit or preassembled.

Aquito, even though this is full option, I'm sure it does...

I only have experience with 3Racing parts which is very positive. But, I hear nothing but good things regarding their touring cars and F1's. Actually thinking about getting an FGX!

45deg out of the box. Okay I guess. The early adopters out there will figure something out. That's something that excites me about this car is finding out all the little things good and bad with a brand new kit.

I would assume it will be available @ release. Everything pink you see in that pic is listed @ the 3Racing site. I hope there'll be other SSG chassis options.

After seeing pics of this car I'm going to order 2 rides for my son and I, these seem so cool. I hope that we can get a few club guys to join in
