What are the little round spacers between the motor and the motor mount for?

Looks like it'll be tough. Lots of aluminum. Nice. What does the roller weigh?

It was designed around ESCs like the Mamba Max, 125B, R1Pro, etc that are a narrower smaller design... the Monster (and Tekin RX8) is larger than expected, and we will make sure the mount works with the fatboy, lol. It may have to be updated to raise the ESC a little so it clears the batteries.

That's just something the guy at the factory added, apparently to keep the motor shaft from sticking out too far. It's not necessarily part of the kit, but a spacer of some form may be included. I expect to see a full disc type of spacer available.

This doesn't appear to be a fully complete factory car... still has prototype parts. We should have the first samples in our hands in a few days.

Yes, a 1515 fits like a glove.

A plastic spur gear is in the works... I don't know if the molds are done yet or what will be included. The plastic gears may be a separate item.

LOL!!!! I'll see to it you don't ever get one then

Last word we have from the factory is that the first kits are on the way to the states, but we haven't got them yet. After that, we can tell them what we need.

The truggy is still expected to come after the buggy... but I don't know how much longer.

Sorry for the delays.... but it's coming!

The delay? We were supposed to have the initial samples weeks ago, and the production cars "on the shelf" by first week of June. That's not going to happen.

Not a big deal... but not what we were hoping for either.

Edit: Oh, and I was also referring to the general lack of info and updates, pricing, etc. I didn't want to leave people hanging quite this long. Hopefully everything happens quickly from here on. Peeps are getting anxious!!!! LOL!!!!

This thread was started April 12th. It has been only 45 days to be exact.....I think we are flying compared to other manufacturers press release vs actual on the shelf ready to go. I know that the molds for the cars are done, the stickers are done, and the box design is done. I think they are still working on the manual and maybe redesigning the box. I think for the next project we will have to do a press release type of deal when they actually arrive. As a side note, when we first released it, there were literally thousands of hits on our site. I wonder if we would have had them then, how many would have converted over to actual sales?

Here is a pic of the new sticker and the new logos to keep everyone entertained for a few more days......lol.
