Was at a race in Shenzhen and I got to see it firsthand racing in the modified class and I was surprised with how well it did considering it almost made the A-Main.
The Execute Sport XQ1S finally got B1 (or A11) in modified class.
Driver is Siu Hung of TRC

Yep. Budget cars have to have perfect quality control for beginners, excellent instruction manuals with zero errors and work well out of the box. This is part of the reason why we all start with Tamiya.

Very interesting observation and most certainly a good point! Frustrations can indeed run high building a chassis without good instructions and all of the necessary parts.

I'm looking forward to an honest build review on this one. I want to know if it falls into the category of a budget car for racers or budget car for newbs. The design looks great in the photos. The Ghost18 fell into the budget car for racers as did most of the other budget TC kits out there which is fine but still leaves a hole in the market that only Tamiya fills. (I'm not including RTR's in this discussion).

Well, the comments above would seem to indicate that it's a decent racer. Granted, there could be some bias there.

I was meaning could a newb successfully build it or is experience required (like with the Ghost18).

I'm pretty excited about this car. My last Xpress car was a 1/24 scale Mini-X. it had a lot of interesting ideas. :-)

LOL....my last Xpress was a Mike Swagger edition 10th scale sedan. That goes back farther than I'd like to say.

Thank you! Mini-X was the first 1:24 AWD micro rc car at 19 years ago!
