Xi Sport better out of the box, I'd say so.

Zero S better out of the box, i'd say no.

heh... any cheap car is going to need work to make it competitive out of the box.. it should just be assumed the build will take longer and require much more attention to detail to make sure everything is right.
this car looks pretty good though. seems to have everything the competition does at a comparable price. if it has the upgrade path thats even better. but dont buy one of these and plan to spend money upgraring things heh.
interested in your review for sure.
we have had a lot of good fortune with the spec r chassis at our track fishing new members, but parts supply seems difficult. something like this might fit the bill as a replacement.

Here is my closer look / review of the car. As you would expect it benefits from a bit of care and attention on the build (So do most cars though) but I have been pretty impressed with it.

Nice review.

This car is just one of several to hit the "clone on-road" market, and that's not a bad thing. The issue that I see is parts availability - which seems to be just from HobbyKing.

For the experienced hobbyist, we'll recognize the compatibility of other brands arms, hubs, knuckles, and even the diffs.

One unique aspect that this chassis has is the CF sandwich - AKA:carbon plated platic. I'm going to have to look out for this a lot more. Another clone company may come out with chrome plated plastic bulkheads.

Having a bunch of clones on the market is a good thing to boost numbers into this hobby, especially if they are all using similar compatible parts.

Thanks for the great review! As I am looking for a first TC Car, its definitely interesting, but as mentioned above, the parts availabilty may be an issue (In Germany I have to look for express shipping costing additionl 13$....). I think it could be wise (if the price may let me ) to just buy 2 kits!

I did a video of the BT-4 performing on the track.
I cannot post links, but you can find it among other BT-4 videos on Youtube/Rcreviews & action channel.

Where is this car available? I have a friend who wants to get back into racing and he's been looking at some of the lesser expensive kits. This looks to be better than any of the ones he's been looking at.

Actually it is a rebranded Team-C TR10, so all parts are compatible with TR10, or TC10.

looks like it was lacking nothing or giving up anything to the other cars on the track... well the pink one was fast...

So how did it handle from your point of view?
