Ultitires currently distributes their 1/8 nitro car in the States. Best bet would be them.

Then hopefully Infinity is picked up by one of the large distributors... But I think that's a long shot. Hopefully whoever does pick up the brand is easy to deal with.

The car will be going up at ultitires.com very soon. Robert Morris runs it and will be importing the car and parts. He is super easy to work with. He is also putting up a bunch of AXON products right now with more to come.

Looks like my local track will be carrying the car as well. Really looking forward to putting this thing on the track.

The Infinity IF14 has been listed for pre-order in the states. Starting tomorrow they will be offering a $20 discount for anybody that pre-orders the car. Here is a link.

It will be interesting to see what the car is more suited for. Mod or stock classes.

I think I only see one thing about this car that is newish... the suspension mounts are bolted to the bulkhead.

And that isn't all that new either.

Xray had that arrangement years ago.

It's not so much "new" as a refined alternate to an Xray/VBC/TRF/ARC - which are all quite similar.

The Yokomo doesn't make that list anymore as it doesn't run symmetrical top deck and has a central belt 😂
