Sweet, can't wait. Issue 109 of Xtreme R/C Cars had a review on it. The disadvantages they listed were
1) No servo saver or recommended use of one
2) Instructions offer no tuning tips
3) Expensive, and hard to find
Most of the parts are from the B4 and TC3/NTC3. Looks like one hell of a ride

Cheers

A couple of us have them here in NSW. Very tough... handle well and jump like a 2WD. We have installed a servo saver....a must as I stripped a servo first race. Back up from Jason in the USA has been superb. It will be interesting to see what the price will be in Australia. You do not need to buy anything for this car...it has everything...threaded shocks, alloy parts. The acceleration is like the old Predators....seems to be way quicker off the mark. Ari B ran one at the NSW titles and only just lost to Matt G in the third leg finishing second after being knocked back to last at the start of the race. Not bad considering it landed in the country a few days before the event.

A small Kimbrough servo saver was installed. Almost a 1/12 scale size. Just fits.
