this looks exactly alike S-work's CX11

as many have pointed out, they used the SMJ CX11 as the base car and developed different parts to further enhance car.

Some changes made to the CX11 are:
20T center pulley
Motor mount
Chassis mounted steering rack (instead of floating)
Different battery mount system
New chassis
Chassis with new mounting holes for new motor mount, battery mount and steering rack
Front and rear bulkhead (changed the color to black, but hopefully they made them much stronger)
Maybe front and rear driveshafts (CX11 uses spring steel, some prototype pictures looked like they were using lightweight aluminium for races)

I do own the CX11 and hopefully they offer a conversion kit or parts sold separately so i can upgrade my CX11 to the new infinity.

Looks quite tempting. Lots of nice refinements.

I have recently become stubborn regarding supporting my LHS - if they can't get it I won't buy it - with a few exceptions for little things. Hopefully they won't ignore hobby stores requests - no excuses.
