I expect no less than that with all the R&D poured into it on a platform that has already been proven. 90% of the homework was already done by others, and they just had to add their own taste to finish it off.

I think anyone looking for a new tc should be intrigued by this offering from hpi. Especially if it performs well this weekend. I want to hear from all the tcxx owners who just sank $300 into the upgrade kit. How pissed are you guys? Enough to switch brands?

I bet 99% of the racers can't make use of the difference (if any) between the updated TCXX and pro5.

These company's don't release a revised or new version of the same product every year for no reason. New and shiny sells

seems like RC manufactures are going the way of the smartphone market. Miniscule changes but hype it up to death

HPI/HB did their homework and the new chassis looks great. I'm really liking the roll-center mounts, and carbon fiber ackerman arms. Hope they do well at this years WC.

He has vertical sway links on this one. Which ones will the car come with? Did anyone esle also notice the battery side of chassis is milled out directly opposite the motor. As if you could flip fhe motor and battery layout???

That's nothing new..Team Magic does this on their chassis'. It's done to create even chassis flex.

Default Chassis milling

Vertical sway links? You mean roll-center links?
