New buggy looks promising. There is a guy on the west coast doing some importing.

It looks like a beefier RC8 with some interesting design.

After looking at the detail pics, the way you adjusts the "rear toe" is kind of cool. Having it adjustable with out having to take the rear plate off is a nice concept. Curious to see how it holds up there. But it still has the brake/pads under the center diff. Wonder if they made it easier to access with this model.

Looks like they made it a 4 piece design so you can remove the top half's and remove the center diff.

As one of the very view people that ran the M1B and M1B Turbo, this thing looks awesome!

The M1 was a very fast car, no doubt about that... just had some durability issues and the Turbo had most of the durability issues worked out and was actually very dependable.

Part quality wise, its right up there with XRAY. When you take anything Team magic out the box you will see what I mean.

No one can deny that this new car looks like a real contender!

Oh, also the M1B was the easiest car EVER to work on. Looks like they got rid of the radio tray system they used to have but you used to be able to take the radio tray out with 3 rclips and the fuel tank as well. They are the ones that started the fuel tanks being clipped in.

The top loading diffs are insanly easy to work on! All 3 diffs come out like the center diff. From the top.

Its already been released. Wolf Hobbies has them for about 400.00. Heres mine... cant wait for some above zero weather to run it.

Love the carbon fiber, suspension is awesome, beefy shocks should keep it planted on the track. - serious improvement over everything before it. Less weight will make it quicker out of the corners and through the jumps... so far so good on the table... real test comin.

Comes 90% assembled. Throttle and brake linkage could have been designed better although I love the ease of adjusting front vs rear brake.

Car looks nice and not so radical compared to the first car. The turnbuckles look rather small, but unless your riding pipes and hitting corner marshalls, should hold up.

I also like the battery and servo in the rear of the car to even out weight distribution from side to side.

Is it just me, or does the sideguard provide virtually no coverage/protection to the pipe aft of the stinger?
