Damn that is a really cool video. Some very clear and clean footage. The car was dialed.

Pinnacale. Don't do that. Look around a little bit on the forums. You will change your mind. TTR can be fast but requires the flat chassis conversion to run well on a rough track. I know 3 people who got TTR's this year. None of them still run it.

Funny, I run a TTR with a stock chassis and I have no problems. I have actually taken the time to try and learn the car and get a set up. Mine works just fine. The TTR's are a great car. If you want, shoot me an email and I will get you a solid starting point for the car. There's 7 or 8 running here with very similar set up's, so it must work. I don't change mine that often. Sway bars and maybe springs, depending on the track.

I think it looks sweet... It has a little flare to it rather than looking like the rest of the buggies out there...
How bad are they gonna kill us on the price for this thing?

they have been saying 2 weeks for the last 1.5years.... it was originally called the W04 (worlds 04), now with xmas only 2 weeks away, i doubt it will be on the shelves for another month at least.... and then only the RTR version.

There is already a grass version out over on the other side of the big pond. It has spider diffs and ect. to handle the heat caused by grass. It sales around 350 euro.

WOW!! the only way to get the body any lower profile is to not run one at all...... I'd venture to say that the stock air filter is the only one you can run with that body....

That body may look ugly, but if is stable then it should be a solid fit. A body will still add 3 or so oz. to the car at the highest point of the car. Ugly may be faster.
