just got back from the first round of the MECA challenge at the Sydney indoor track at Windsor.

Ran the Scythe in stock class (Japanese stock spec, 23T, 8mins, 1400g weight)

the car is a absolute missile, very fast and very stable,

unfortunately I was in the "slow" qualifiers and only managed to qualify 6th,

but in the finals the car really showed its stuff finishing 3rd, 2nd and 1st for a overall 2nd place.

not that I know of, there would not be much of a market here for a carpet car. (there is only 1 carpet track in Australia)

there might be one in the works for the US market though,

I run for corally, but if this car takes off in the USA. I'm sure an after market company like BMI or team pickles can make a carpet version for the people driving them. The car looks real good.

It does look really good. Considering that their are 3 standout rubber cars ATM, having a car based on one (cyclone) has to be a good platform to work with.

Actually IT IS A T4. The chassis is basically a T4 with a different top plate. The only difference are the HPI Pro 4 arms and hubs.

The company that bought out OVA is the same company that is producing the T4. Most obvious is the center motor mount.

Yes correct, actually T4 is old version, this car is OVA 4th generation, because TOP Racing Japan bought OVA company and also employ the OVA designer.

just a update on Carpet:

last weekend I ran the T.O.P. Scythe at the ACT indoor state Titles (carpet) in GT23 (8 min). this is the first time I have ever ran on carpet (only carpet track in all Australia I believe)

the car worked very very well, the main differences was to put a ball diff up the front as well as putting a extra standard top deck on the car (sanwiched together with longer screws)

I managed to TQ as well as finish first,

for all the guys running on carpet the new bottom/top deck should stiffen up the car very well,

understand where you are coming from with the alloy bulkheads,

I am not sure what the pricing is like where you are from, but here in Au the Scythe is a bit cheaper ($100-$150) cheaper than other popular kits like the Cyclone and T2 (AU$550 versus AU$650-700 approx)

when adding the alloy bulkheads the T.O.P. Scythe price comes closer to the AU$650 mark, so not much price difference with other high end belt kits. just a matter of choice if you want the alloy or not.

also the kit Scythe comes with the sway bar mounting kit and 1.4 (soft) swaybars.

from my own testing I actually still like the "feel" of the base kit scythe with composite bulkheads better than with the alloy, (but I still need to do more testing with the alloy)
