Ugly as hell!
The rest of the car is tasty though...

I liked the look of the advanced plus and now this 1 too. Just parts support is no good in the US. The CF looks super nice. Body is a little weird but different, so it gets points for that. Brake pads are sick too.

Parts support will not be an issue in the US.

Using G10 instead of CF for radio tray looks good

We don't have plans to be at the NC this year...just not prepared to attend. We will be at the SS for sure, and I am pretty sure the new car will be there.
I think it is safe for me to say that the car shown on the photos, along with the body, parts, etc., is still in preproduction and it should not be assumed that what you see is what you will get in the kit.

Send an email to garenh@gsracing.com if you are interested in the CLX. The car will be released in Europe first, but I might get a very small number of kits shipped here to the US from the first batch.

By the way, it does look badass!!!

You get what you pay for, I found out in 3 races that the D8 was not going to be what I needed to finish a race and friends that have them have more money in upgrades than it would cost to just get a good kit. I raced my Advanced for 6mo every week and can count on one hand and $50 max what broke on it.
