I know, difficult without seeing it or any real details being released.
I don't see how things can get much easier then the current crop of .12 engine we use in out tc's. I used to fly control line .049's and they were pretty simple, but not as easy to work on. It used to be really easy to break somthing that required you to replace the entire engine. It was a lot cheaper though. Also help for the .12's is easier to get. I'm sure Xray is using a converted airplane engine so support, in the beginning, might be hard to come by.

Having said that, I really like to looks of the car. I've got the itch to get one. Maybe Santa will leave one under my tree. That starter box is cool too!!

Looks like it drives pretty well. Would also be good on electric tracks or for those in areas where there is only electric track.

Default Impossible dream

What would be truely wonderful is if we could get people to race these cars box stock. So we could have fair competition and limit expences.

I think these cars will be real popular, but whats going to ruin it for new people like me; is the fact that a few people will put hundreds of extra dollars into the cars with hop ups and bigger motors. Then, if anyone wants to be competitive they will have to follow suit.

WOW...31MPH!!!! In 1/10th scale, that the same as running 55mph! don't care if its a novelty or not, I still have one on pre-order. Something I can put in a radio case and take out anytime I want, or take with me anyplace. I bet in the near future somebody will have a radio case with a built in starter box and parts storage unit. heck, I can even see a crude tire truer being built into it as well, making a "briefcase" nitro car....COOL!!!

The day I get mine, I will be working on my "briefcase" with a tire truer and starterbox built in.

Remember, you seen this here first....Anybody who takes my idea, and puts it on the market, remember I HAD IT FIRST!!!!
Am I going back racing?...Hmmm.. Not anytime soon... But soon enough.

That is probably the case. I think the car looks pretty cool. I wont be the first one on my block to buy one, but I could see one on my bench! I think the tuned pipe looks awesome.

Default Special Starter box?

Looks like it takes a special starter box.
I'd think the drive line would have to be aluminum,
cuz plastic would destruct under those loads!

I bet it will really eat up some tires.

Whatever, I just know I'll have one, even if
it is a novelty, sitting between a 1/10 and 1/8 Lola.

I sure hope they come out with a ground hugging Lola
or the Porsche 917 will look good as well.

On my Xmas list for sure!!
