That's why. There are a lot of people out there that don't want to burn four to five hundred dollars or more on a chassis alone. I happen to be one of them. I was checking this out but couldn't get enough info/get one plus spares quick enough so I went with the XI Sport. Seriously though, for the cost of a T4 new I got my car, all spare suspension parts like arms, hubs, knuckles etc. Plus I bought the aluminum steering kit, front and rear bulkhead, arm mounts, carbon shock towers, and an aluminum floating servo mount. That's just the start, I also bought a brand new D3.5 Maxzilla, a new lowpro servo, and two sets of tires for race day. I aready had batteries but I could have gotten two 4000 mah 50C packs and still prob had money to spare on just the kit price of a T4. What else is there, Heck if you want to compare it to a 417wx I could have bought a new Reventon Pro, and a name brand 2.4GHz receiver for the car and still been under the price for the kit alone. I know people will say yeah, but the quality is better and maybe there right. Idk but this new Sakura is a really nice car, and I'm thinking about getting a SpecR S1 just to compare the two can see which one is better for the price. See I can do that with cars in this price range without selling a kidney

I bought one. Love it.

The build is good.

It drives a lot like my VBC wildfire.

For it's price, I'd choose this any day. I could get two of these and still costs less than my VBC.

Compared to my T3, on the straight, it's not as stable. But it turns a lot better.

For a guy like me who doesn't have much time to build kits, this kit is a real winner.

Also, this car is much more durable than S1.

Because the sport doesn't grow from experienced racers. We need new blood to grow the class/sport and making good quality, low cost cars is a great way to introduce noobs to the hobby. they can then graduate to higher end cars when their experience and budget permits.

You're going to have to wait a week and see who knocks you a spot or 2 down in VTA.

Because cars like this are perfect to bring in NEW people to the hobby. These cars aren't for established long time racers. Our hobby needs as many of these cars to spark more intrest

Hello, if you're interested, I made a spanish review in my website:

http://www.rcelectrico.es/analisis-d...l-nuevo-rgt-r2

In the next days I'll put more information, details and upgrades on the car.

The performance was really better than expected, a little slower than my VBC with an standard setup and out-the-box car being 23.722 with the VBC and 23.823 seconds with that RGT R2 on my first run.

Waiting for the 3 rear suspension mount excentric bushing to try a best setup for asphalt racing.

Regards

Default RGT at USVTA Southern Nats

The car preformed well at this year's USVTA race In Nashville.

I ran the car basically box stock with different oil in the shocks and raised roll centers in the rear at the arm mounts.

I was able to qualify in the 6th position and finished 7th overall after some tough luck in A1/A2. I think we could have had a 5th overall finish if it hadn't been for the first 2 mains.

My car performance is good on asphalt, but I think it would be better with the 3 rear bushing.

Also, I put 350 cst oil shock and 3 holes on dampers and 1000 cst on rear gear diff.

Regards
