I love the labled eccentric cams and the way the diffs angle/slide into the bulkheads - should be much easier to make belt tension adjustments and make maintenance easier. I hate drive shaft "blades" and WRC did a nice job eliminating them. The front spool and the spur gear layshaft design looks to be super light (and both are adjustable in height). Awesome anti-roll mounts, no dumb hard to adjust ball joints, inboard suspension mounts appear to allow more flex and the hinge pin balls have flanges. The servo mount looks to have a superior CG and a linear steering rack! Love the horizontal style battery tape slot. Plus the kit includes double Cardan drive shafts and isn't anodized some silly colour. OMG it looks good.
you hit all the salient points of the STX, bravo!
WRC Blade is very durable
STX is strong, no reliability issue, and materials are the best on market.
I just removed the bushings ST03055, because if it deform, the servo can move, I recommend using a countersunk shim with countersunk screw.
just a little bit of patience, but soon it will be also in the whole Europe, USA and rest of world ...
