Jim, nice quip there, maybe in all honesty Mr Pred had never seen a Coyote and truly did believe that he was the first (it can happen you know, like Losi claiming the first single belt, cough.... PB).

I think ANYONE claiming ANY thing to be a new design now is on a hiding to nothing in the RC world, unless it is TRULY innovative.

Some of you might find the RCRaceChat.com T.Tech forum interesting. See it here:
http://www.rcracechat.com/vb/forumdisplay.php?f=76

It's looking like the kit plus shipping and a spare parts pack is gonna run at least $700 USD (give or take $20-50 for conversion rates) ... expensive in USD, heck ya. Worth it? Probably. Check out the specs on this car. It is by far the most 'high end' electric 4WD buggy kit out there. It has all the bling. I'm really looking forward to this kit, more than any other I've ever owned...

'nuff said,
MX4

I'm curious, how well is something with practically no ground clearance and that odd front wing, that probably makes it extremely hard to set-up the car properly, much less fly properly, going to handle these big-air American tracks?

I've never seen anything designed for excessive air with an excessive amount of wings... That car is all about downforce, it's practically an indy car with tread on the tires.

Is it really even going to be even remotely popular/useful in America? I only see it being useful on the indoor carpet tracks that are comprised mostly of speedbumps.

Well, ive posted this in another thread and ill re-post it here. Brian Kinwald drove one of these preds at the Nats and litteraly blew the competition away and easily lapped people, does this answer your question?

If you dont believe me, ask him yourself or better yet Gabe Boubreu whos got his own thread floating around here somewhere!

The Predators have always been awesome cars.

BK used one at the Winter Champs in '96. Mr. Weatherly was there to prepare the car for him and BK and I think Derek Furtani drove the wheels off them. BK won easily. Later that year Losi prototyped the XX4.

William Mitcham (I know I spelled his name wrong) finished 3rd I believe in the worlds @ the old Ranch in the early to mid '90's - I forget the year.

At the Off-Road worlds in Tampa there was a driver there from England using a Pred, the car looked good on the track.

Will was defenetly at the business end of the final that year at the Ranch (97 i think), but i don't think he was as high as 3rd. Think 5th maybe.
