...with blinding corner-speed.

After now seeing it's potential I don't know whether to nickname the buggy "The Blip" or the SuperFreak. If you blink, you might miss it when it goes by, and if you look too hard it will freak you.

Has TQ Racing tested the car with pbs suspension in the front? I know the guys in Malaysia liked the car a lot with pbs up front?

We have choosen our platform and will not be trying the front end we love the c hub the car carries allot of corner speed and we feel it is best suited for the US style tracks,with the team guys getting cars this week we will have the dialed setup before the production race roller is ready

Default Good Question

We still love the Nanda based SX8 it was our original car and never failed us, they were also a very good company to work with.We will still carry the SX8 RTR nanda based also.

As we looked at the market and racing in general we feel that the companies that stay most innovative are the ones that stay alive.

This platform was available and ready to bring to the market we were able to test the car and could only smile with the performance, for us as a company we now that to keep growing we have to stay ahead of the curve.

Luther You need to get Anthony W. to come back from hiatus and run the new car down here at the pro, if not Im available LOL, that gives you something to think about or maybe not. But with all the Maryland guys comming down for the points series would be a good time to show it off. They were here last Sunday a great turnout.

Wow I haven't check this thread in about a week and half and my goodness did I miss so much.

The car is great and will take TQ to the next level that Luther wants it to go. Please give him a break on past experiences I know he has had some changes and everything has been on his shoulders. He is committed and will do a great job in the future.

I do think you will start seeing much more support for the new car, the body is off the chain, IMO the new bulldog from proline is a copy of our body, so congrats there.

Just to give you an inside on Luther and his support. I was at the PNB with new car and needed an odd part so he overnighted me the part so I could keep running. If thats not great customer and team support then I don' t know what is.
