Looks good, though, you would think we could finally get away from e-clips.

It really doesnt look like a direct copy of anything,which is cool.I just see alot of influence from pretty much all the major brands out there right now.It is definitely cool that they have the truck right there with the buggy,which really makes me think that these may be intended for the U.S. market since stadium trucks are primarilly a US type of popular class.

Kind of proves that 2WD is at a standstill as far as what to do next.

B4, Academy, RB5, Losi, this one. All cars have something in common somewhere in their design.

I'm guessing a factory mid-motor might pop out someday....maybe Losi....

Maybe but mid motor really only excels at high bite tracks it seems. Today, at least here in Cali, tracks are also 8th scale and blown out and mid motor would be tough to get grip.

Default nice with wheel hex

I wish every vendor can standardized the wheel on the touring car hex.

I think it is a RB5 front, RB5 gearbox, B4 rear suspension. xxx chassis.
b4 steering.

Not a bad looking car. It don't have the MLP like the Losi and Academy do. Not as many camber link positions in the front like the Academy does and it don't have the vertical ball stud mounts in the rear like the Academy and B4 have. THe shocks look nice and the shock bottoms look like the thread on type like the Losi shocks have (wish the Academy shocks had that).

Lots of little differances and also some things that are alot alike to the other cars. I do like the green shocks as it is something different instead of blue or purple.
