to me it looks like the new sport buggy with alot of the d4 W.C. parts on it like shocks and so forth. i would like to see this layout in a pro version just due to the plastic chassis wich in my opinion will let the car take bumps better due to more flex just like the sp or fs. not very blingy butt it works.

I want one now, and a D4, so I can transfer over the compatible parts and still use my lipo stick packs.

Already on sale in the Far East.

Looks interesting - strip the good parts from a donor Cyclone D4 and it *might* be better in some conditions - certainly an easier car for LiPo users.

What information would you like to know?

The car goes together very nicely. Also nice that the car comes with a few options (0 degree and 1 degree rear hubs and 10 degree and 13 degree front castor blocks)

The car is strong and durable as it won a 24hr race over here in the UK.

I didnt even think it had been released yet,

Do you have any pictures of the build? Will this angled rear drive shaft into the rear bulk head cause any binding?

Well I borrowed one of my mates Core 5000 lipo to see if it fitted in fine and no problems. I know that the orion 5000 also fits.

Had a few laps with the car yesterday, nothing serious and it felt very stable around the track, and for the track it was run at it was very supprising. Based on a box set up, was more than happy. One area i would consider changing first is the removal of the dog bones on the rear for CVD's

The car is available in the far east at the moment, with regards to photos of the car, there are some posted on oOple in the hot bodies section.

I don't see there being a problem with the angle of the rear drive shaft, but i havn't spent any real time running the car yet. Initual thoughts of the car are very good
