Cars have arrived in the USA.
Ok now I'm taking off the distributor hat:
I started putting one together and so far I can say from a packaging,assembly manual and part quality I am really stunned. I expected it to be good but TM has exceeded any expectations I had by 10 fold.
Every bag is marked and you go from bag to bag page to page and you open a bag and use all the parts then go on to the next one. No fumbling around looking for the right piece when you need it. Funny the car is so well packaged that when I opened the actual box and pulled out the bags I thought half the car was missing but its all there.
It even has a box that has the fasteners sorted with each one clearly marked so you can immediately find the right part. many little details have changed right down to the plastic being used. The finish on the parts is so good I could not believe it was a G4 kit. The front one way solid axle is just pure art and the car now has premium low friction sealed ball bearings. I have to give it to TM they got serious and really stepped it up bigtime. Can't wait to run it.
