Come to think of it, one advantage this car looks to have on the M07 is the free selection of spur gears, being that the M07 is limited to a couple.

This is the shell, new Civic Type R.

p.s. I wont bother to mention that the co-ordinate axis in the bottom l/hand corner is weirdly wrong.

This car looks pretty interesting! Just started on road myself and really like it alot. Especially 1/12th. Fun as HELL to drive compared to my TC4 which is gonna take some time to get up to somewhat decent speed with it!

Honestly, I'm looking for a 210mm FWD chassis and it seems that this one is the only option I have with Gambado Mini... But still not very sexy. I would prefer to find a MTS FF V2 Mini but it seems very hard now...

In the original pic the white parts were 3D print parts to check for final fitment. Since then off-tool production parts (the black ones) have just become available. Thats what you see in the 3 car pic.

Does that thing even have some weight on front axle? Motor is pushed very far back and battery seems to be behind center of chassis

Looks nice. It's too bad the Mini classes over here only allow Tamiya Minis. They're such a pain to work on.

Thanks for the video Tony. I like the fact that the chassis is fibreglass, it'll make it super cheap like the F1 that 3Racing released. I think I'll buy one just to build it if it's cheap and cheerful.
