Yes pictures would be nice.

Anyone compared running it against other top guns like the Kyosho Lazer ZX-5 and/or the Yokomo MR4-BX(SP)??

THOSE ARE SWEET. I have a question though... how are the diffs protected. I really want something belt driven (and to be a little different), but hear that the loose, blown-out tracks in my area are really tough on the open diffs like on the Yokomo. Car looks great...

There is a cover on the front and one at the rear. the body and bulkheads do a great job of protecting anything towards the center of the car.

Very Nice, What about chassis shots or even better - action shots?

Are the plastic parts same old tamiya? How do you break a rear hub carrier? with out the plastic being cheap quality? The car looks cool and the body looks even better. Just curious how the plastic will hold up. Not bashing anything here just curious.

There was a pole in the facility just off the side if a long double, and I taged the pole. the car preformed really well. I had never raced off road so it took a bit to get a feel, and I still didn't get yet satrt landing the down side of the jumps. Another 501 owner had only raced 2wd truck, once or twice, and he had lap times the were right with the faster guys that day.
