Thanks for the pictures. The car seems much better than a M07 tbh. Better plastics, SWB, less slop... Not to mention the revolutionary 1-screw spur holder

Better plastics? You can't tell that from a couple of pictures. They haven't even run it yet.

The 3Racing plastics have actually become pretty good in the past couple of years. Think Tamiya graphite reinforced plastics and thats my opinion of where they are.

The text next to the pictures on Tony Gray's link specifically mentions the plastics. Try to keep up . And no, it's not hard to tell if the plastics of a given car are better than those on the M07, just by having them in hand.

Wow, that's really impressive.

I think they would have done themselves a big marketing favor if they had gone for colored fiberglass for the decks.

... I paid $150 for my M07.

Unboxing of retail kit in Cantonese.

Some notable comments:
  • Billy (host) says there won't be an evo (full optioned) version of the evo
  • Comes with 500k diff oil and ceramic grease
  • CF chassis and upper decks will be available
+ YouTube Video

So this is another version of the kit? The original/1st version is not even out yet.

What is the difference between the Evo with the pre-order ones on rcmart?

Its the same car, they just ended up changing the name for the final packaging. That info comes direct from Jacky Lau.

Hop ups are up on the 3racing-site. I'm not allowed to post URL yet (n00b poster)...

A lot of parts that are interchangable with the M-07.

Looks like it's available from 3Racing on eBay... Long shipping time to the U.S. though.

I might have to pick up one of these.. I have 2 BSR M Rage and love that little car. By far the funnest scale to drive in my book. Now if I can only get my local track to run them.

Anyone have a good suggestion/source for tires for this size? Looks like the 60D Tams are the way to go.
