Hopefully you donít need to get to that servo horn very often.

To be honest, how often do you really need to access the servo horn...on ANY car?

Cant satisfy anyone these days. Uses a cookie cutter design, criticize it for not being original. Minimal design changes throughout the year, complain they arent innovative enough. Come up with something drastically new, shoot it down and say its unnecessary and unpractical.

Looks like the lower arms thread into the plastic mono? If so, not sure I like that part of it.

It's just my way expressing the ridiculous situation with servo savers in kits... very few kits include them and if they do - usually they rattle off the interior wall of the garbage can before the chassis even hits the track (unless it's an Xray).
This new Infinity chassis is my top contender to replace my X1'15 but I hope to see what RSD and Speedmerchant has for us first. I'm looking for a kit that brings something significant to the table... if Xray includes the gear diff in their X1'19 that could win me over as well (not holding my breath after the X12'19 FAIL however).

You know Xray won't include the diff. Too much money to be made selling it separately.

Yep, no way I'm buying a "premium" chassis from the manufacture that created such a significant upgrade to the pan car class if it isn't included in the kit. Imagine if the T4 didn't include the short shocks. Imagine your T4 still looked like a farm tractor with shock towers poking out of that Exotek USGT body. It's F'ing insane.

... and we are talking about injection molded parts (Xray gear diff). Injection molding is for cheap MASS production. Crazy.

Just learned about this car today. I’m not familiar with the brand. I’ve heard of it, but that’s about it. My Associated F1 is still faster then my ability, so not really looking to replace. More just curious about how this design compares.

It's mostly the same as the Roche, Xray, Associated etc. but the front end looks awesome'er and might be better due to improved rigidity (the weak point of the current top F1 designs).

I assume - can't see anything that would cause an issue.

She ain't cheap though... https://gripworksrc.com/collections/...-formula-1-car
More than an Xray and I assume no body or wings plus it's mostly made of Roche parts from their F1 which is far less costly.
Being sexy is expensive.

It appears that pretty little monocoque cost the racer about $136CAN... there are a couple other little things in kit that the Roche doesn't have but yikes.

It is possible. Wait for 2 years when every kit comes with gear diff then Xray must have to include gear diff in kit.

Reviewing the current offerings is driving me back into the arms of Xray
