I have seen one run. It had the best corner speed of any off road car I've ever seen. The owner was having traction roll problems but I think that's why Greg Hodapp runs his electronics behind the batteries instead of the front.
I was very impressed with the car.

It is THE best handling 4wd car I've ever driven. (I have yet to pilot my Kyosho ZX-5.) It is very consistant, never throws any suprises at you, and handles just about any type of track conditions you can throw at it. I actually prefer it over my BJ4.

If you have a xx-4, things will only get better with an X-5. I recommend it highly.

I got one at the end of this summer. Ran two, two day races with it, TQ'd the first one and TQ'd and won the second one. Had to spend some time geting the belt tension and slipper setup right.

Over all I LOVE the car and am faster with it than my XXX4 by far.

The one I have now I got used. For 2006 I'm gonna get a new XX4 and X-5 conversion and build a fresh car thats all new.
