Chassis looks very good - hopefully someone picks up the WRC line up in North America.

I took a real close look at the instruction manual and available images... this car has some really nice design features. Not just the design of the upper deck "rails" but the way they are fastened with small bushings (to prevent tweak I assume). The rails bypass the motor mount bulkhead too! 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 ...

The first delivery came to germany yesterday and the team-car is already finished. What can I say... AMAZING!
Quality is top-notch, everything fits perfect, WOW!

The steering rack, the roll-bars, the flex adjustment...

Can't wait to finish the photoshoot and go for the rollout

First rollout before the german championship and we are at the level of, Marc Fischer, Yannic Prümper and so on... Only at the second pre-race training-day we were beaten by 1/100 second, but we weren't there the second day

We are so happy with this car. It has tons of steering and is super fast even in the very technical infield.
