But that was a prototype car - all that + more, is taken care of for the production cars. We broke one steering servo arm spline in one of the Futaba arms after the same tripple jump that eventually ended the race though, that was in the last Q heat. Pics showing Magnus Pålsson + XB8.

Was that an expected street price, or was that the suggested retail price?

it didnt say, but i guess it would be an estimated strret price?
sounds about right, slotting in between prices of the X-5 and 777.
but i cant imagine it being too much less than this price after release
