It comes factory equipped with a bd7 upper deck aswell! The camber link mounts look cool tho, and prone to breakage? However, it's more of a revolution of camber mounts than a revolution of touring cars.

Wow huge let down the only thing I see "innovative" is the inboard camber mount. Other than that it looks like every other car out there. It even looks like it could still use the pro4 - tcxx arm mounts. Come on, you couldnt make it a pill system alla xray/associated. They even got away from there vertical sway bar connectors. Everyone else is moving to them.

I havent been this disappointed since I lost my virginity... oh wait... thats what she said.

It was a stupid press release.

Car looks OK but the press release hyped it up far too much.

Unless it's cheap, it's hard to understand why anyone would buy it.

camber links are unique, but in some ways similar to how Schumacher has done them.


The marketing was great...hell it got everyone talking about the car and interested. Whether it sells or not the initial buzz was created. I'd throw some purple shims on the car and rock it

Looks like the result of a Yokomo and Xray having a baby.

Nothing like I was expecting ...... I thought they where going to re invent the TC platform. I always waited for the new HPI pro cars and always bought one. It remains to be seen how it performs in the hands of a regular club racer but still I was waiting for something revolutionary. Not a bad effort but too much hype over another cookie cutter sedan

I see nothing worth getting excited over. Just the typical belt drive TC.

So how do all those guys that just spent $300+ onan upgrade kit for the TCXX that will still underperform and have lack luster parts support feel about this car that will in all likelyhood come in aprund $425-$450. Just a couple more months and a few more bucks and a brand new car that will be getting more support from the team.

Points for the inner camber mount, otherwise just another clone, only this one you can never crash because you'll never get parts for it. This is what happens when non-technical people (marketing as opposed to engineers) are allowed near keyboards. Only you can prevent marketing babble.

Wait I just thought about it. The TCXX is going to get a huge amount of parts support... from all the used ones about to get dumped on the market.
