This car seems to be a blend of the 05 and 06. If running in VTA, I would get this car. If the 06 was the ticket, they could have made a VTA version of it. Instead they took their time to design a specific chassis with its own steering components. If I hadnt have just bought a used D05 a week before this came out, I would have one on my hobby table right now. Probably still will get one after tax refund comes in next year and turn the 05 into a 17.5 car. This car shoukd get a lot of VTA focused support from the manufacturer such as set ups and hop uo down the road.
One thing that would be really cool would be a weighted chassis. I know that getting it perfect would be impossible, but something that would get the car to around 1K grams without electronics would probably work. It would allow for minimal weights to be added whether your running ROAR or USVTA. Plus it would keep the weight as low as possible.
