I understand you get what you pay for, but some of the kits are getting alittle rediculous. I mean, $650.00 for a "race roller" that doesn't even come with wheels and tires!! You couldn't even justify that. As far as the D8, I have seen alot of people around here be very sucessful with it and not replace any parts. It just might not have fit you.

I don't know what the price of the CLX will be, but we will do our best to price it as competitively as possible. The quality of the GS cars has come a long way from nearly ten years ago.

Try email again, I am trying to figure out what the problem is....

Speaking from a manufacturer's point of view, you can't make everyone happy with the tire/wheel issue. If tires and wheels are included, someone will complain that they either don't work or don't last long. If you don't include them, or only include wheels, then someone complains about that too. Then you have the problem of including Brand P tires and your distributor in Europe sells Brand A tires, etc. For what it's worth, tires and wheels may make the packaging box bigger and heavier, which translates into higher shipping costs, etc. Personally, I think the kits are best off not having any wheels and tires.

'Silver graphite' is the term used by the GS Factory to describe the radio tray and upper diff plate. I think in laymen's terms it's a type of CF.

The body is being redesigned. I have seen 2 versions in various prototypes, I think we'll have the final versions for the SS race.

My friend was running his yesterday at Rev,he really likes it out of the box. Very strong for sure!!! Jared the front end a couple times with no problems. Nice and planted,fast out of the corners. I never considered a GS b4, but I think I will get this one for my son. And yes,as I understand it, that may not be the final version of the car. You will hear a lot from this car especially with Miguel Matias behind the wheel
