I noticed in a few of the pics that they have foam tyres on it. I wonder if it is stiff enough for foams on carpet?

you need to talk to axial people, they might be able to help you. I 've talked to them about scalpel parts.

tower hobbies says they will have the car, but also have no parts. I want to race this car during the outdoor season, hopefully someone will have part by then.

I love the look of this car but there appear to be a few design features that are a few years out of date, such as diff access and roll centre adjustment. However it looks like the ball diff uses much larger diff plates, i assume are similar to the big diff rings of the latest 12th scale cars.

This is someting i would love al TC's to adopt.

diff access....I have had every car to date before and after the bulk heads and as a stock rubber racer only I feel I had no need to pull the diff everyother race to re-build .... roll center I do like the way it is same as my 415,stallion and HB the only car I feel needed change was the corally rdx and I c now it has....I get the Avid today and will run it tonight ..
