edit. 10pm. Just got notice that it’s finally being shipped. Now how long will it take. I’m still waiting for a kit they shipped on the 5th of the month. So far not impressed with RCMART shipping.

Got mine two days ago (from Asiatees)

Very easy to build. Only a few parts, but it is important to double-check the way it must be assembled.

My manual only shows how to assemble it in FF, but I suppose the other versions are available online.

Just a few points:
- There is no motor in the kit.
- There is a 75T 48DP spur gear (quite specific as the diameter of the diff is very small.
- The stock motor mount only supports 15T and 21T.
- The 15T pinion is included.
- The body comes with headlights.
- The tyres seem usable

The car without electronics but with wheels is 474g.

Same here. Hasnít left Hong Kong yet. I do think rcmart needs to improve their tracking. I found this morning that my other package had been sitting at post office for 10 days, yet their tracking only show departure Hong Kong on 11/9.

Maybe. The problem I see is availability. Unless WC was to start carrying it. If itís an overseas only purchase, creating any kind of class using it seems tough.

We'd need a stateside vendor, to stock it. And spares. The car could be run in USGT. There's not a lot of other places it would be useful.

Upon futher checking. It looks like Hobbytown has, or may still, carry MST parts. Maybe.. we ask them?

Iíll check on it. I was surprised to MST being on the shelf a year or so. Think it was because of the partnership with AMain they could do it.

I love this car...Raced it last night and it handles super nice. 27turn on 60amp brushed esc. good for spec class racing.
makes it affordable and its super fun when everyone has identical power plant.

Nope, free shipping deal on it. Weird. Annoying even, that mine went out before yours.
