Default Thunder Tiger X-Force(EB-4 S3) Thread

Can you guys believe it, another 1/8 scale buggy!
Heres some pics:

Pic 1
Pic 2

Rumor has it that Saxton is running a prototype version with an O.S. engine.
There are some pics of his buggy on this site:

RC CAr article

If you look at the pics youll see that the buggy has fruity pink graphite parts. Weird.

Both Richard Saxton and Michael Sharwin ran their buggies in sweden for the Friendship race. There are a few other TTR drivers running these right now also. Saxton is using an OS V-spec, and sharwin is using Sh motors.

Finally a buggy that I can't waltz in and call a Kyosho copy.

Looks like ttr spent some serious R&D time, nice to see some originality in the genre for once. Lets hope they fixed the parts quality issues they had with previous buggies - and if so i'm sure it'll be a winner.

As for the OS, I just jumped the tracks sold my V01 and picked up a JP mod..

mmm nova, reliability AND durability
