Ah, that makes sense. Noticed same front bumper as the older TOP cars. Guess they bought the old molds or there is some connection since TOP went out of business.

Iíve always wanted a high end shaft driven TC to be able to really compare against a typical belt driven. Even before I started racing. Only options seem to be Awesomatix or Tamiya. While I really doubt this will make it to the States, itís good to see another possibility

Finger cross it does, the 2 main things they got to get right is part support and it being competitive if they get both right I don't see why it wouldn't come here. Also, I am telling you need to jump into the a700 train still my all time favorite RC shaft car.

I have the Exotek HPI Pro4x v2 and an Awesomatix A700 Evo 2. The A700 was a great car for slower spec classes.

I hesitated on one last summer. One of the guys I race with bought it and a A800 from same seller. I keep my eye open.
