edit. 10pm. Just got notice that itís finally being shipped. Now how long will it take. Iím still waiting for a kit they shipped on the 5th of the month. So far not impressed with RCMART shipping.
Have you guys tried ordering from Asiatees.com these guys are super reliable. Iím all the way in Guam and they ship to me fast!

Not yet. But maybe next time Iíll give them a try. What bothers me is Iíve had zero issues ordering from them through eBay. I even get tracking. But ordering direct so far has not been good. I looked at my original order and they actually did ship it to my billing addres, not my shipping address.

Asiatees has been nothing but a nightmare for me never ordering from them again. Rcmart, on the other hand, I got nothing but good things to say about those guys. My last order from rcmart took only 8 days and that was with that free shipping they offer with certain products.

makes it affordable and its super fun when everyone has identical power plant.
On my own, I think this could be a great way to convert these F1-driving peasants to the saint touring car categories lol

I'm going to run it with my F1 electronics to check if the transition is possible... Culd be a great bridge from category to another without having to re-invest in the electronics.

Cool, I know they had issues in the past but now they ship to our island pretty fast. I hope you try them again, they are really good with our local community
they have been sponsoring lots of local events. I did the TCR un-boxing on their website store. I love how they have all the parts support for this car and now we can go faster without worrying not having replacement parts.

Im trying to post pictures but it won't allow me because I haven't reach post limit yet. But as far as electronics we are running budget race Brushed 27turn motor on el-cheapo 60amp esc 2s lipo and what a blasts to race. its pretty quick on 21tooth pinion. The kit comes with 15 tooth pinion. we have a short track so its perfect entry level car for us. I will try 13.5 next week and see how it handles.

Cool that you like them. Considering how stupid they are when it comes to things on backorder and other problems that have come up with them I don't see myself ordering from them again and if I ever do it probably would be something small less then 15 dollars not a close to 300 dollar order like my current one. My main go to stores are either rcmart and amainhobbies (They probably have one of the best customer support I ever dealt with). Also have you try this for posting photo https://imgbb.com/ I don't know if you still need a minimum post count for it but that is what I use to post photos

we were talking about this here yesterday. The problem with using this for a class is availability. No track is going to start and promote a class using a vehicle they canít or donít sell.

you know what is wrong? Me trying to do sarcasm in another language than my mothertongue... Can't say it is a success!

At my club, we have 100% F1 drivers, and a part of them are seniors, which think that 13.5 boosted is too fast for them, that they would be obstacles in a touring race. So I think running this car with F1 electronics could be a nice bridge...

The car seems robust but I'm not sure it can handle 13.5, even blinky. About availability, we have a swiss shop here (hobbyshop.ch) which is also official importer and distributor for MST, so...

My car is 1100g ready to race (without the transponder)...

well, other then the use of the word ďpeasantĒ Iíd have not guess English wasnít. Thatís one of them European words that not used often in the States. Car looks clean a simple in the picture. You picked FWD, more popular or works better. Iím undecided about how mine will be setup. Got time to decide while I wait.
