With the new Ttech America in place and the new ownership, I wonder how well it will do here in the US.
Jimmy over at oOple.com didn't give the X-10 as an impressive conclusion as most other top end buggies.
I wonder how the new innovations on the X-11 will set it apart.
Can't wait to see some pics.
Any word on how kit and parts support is shaping up here in the US?

Looks like the sportscar of off-road buggyies. It looks a bit fragile.

It has the longest arms of any car out there so it should have the most suspension travel too.

I called them today and was told 330 pounds, lbs, ( not sure of the abbreviation) which translates to roughly $650 if my math is correct. A tad more than ther other r/c "supercars" such as the bj4, 501, mr4, but the x11 looks alot better under the body.

Add $60 postage on top would sound bout right, anytime you order parts expect to pay premiums on it, not to mention the waiting time for parts to arrive. Said it many times and ill say it again, they needs a distributor

The gentleman I spoke to said they were in the process of looking for a distributor here in the States.

Hi, had a old predator international from late 90s. Still in good shape. I think the x11 will be much better in term of design and built. Off course the down side would be it price! It's way sky high. But that seem to be the trend as more upper class model are being made.

Looking forward to acquire when the pocket due! Ha ha!

I really like this new pred, the only thing keeping me from getting either the x10 or the x11 is how low the buggy is,in terms of distance from the ground to the chassis of the buggy, especially the front end. Ive seen a few preds struggle getting around some tracks because of thing in the way such as mats that the bj4 for example could travel over fine!

Anyway thats just my thought.

wd40prerunner - Well, if its any indication I saw an X-10 run at the Hot Rod Shootout last year... not too impressive. In fairness, it wasn't in the hands of a very good driver either.

Sounds like they are still trying to get the support in place for US distributorship. Shops have to carry parts, spares, etc. before I will jump in, despite the design, which looks like the ferrari of off road electric buggies.
