Sigh, I was hoping they'd put more skin in the game like Destiny did but this is certainly good news for the FF class.

Most of the tracks I've seen them race at in Europe run hatches only.

$460 on RC Mart.

A seller here (UK) says it'll be 375 max.

Manual is available on the Xray site under the T4F area. I cruised through it. Looks like it shares many of the parts from the T4. Looks like a qwick build. Protoform sells a body for at like 27.00 and some change.

The whole back half of the car along with ecs and front arms casters and knuckles are all t4 parts so having spares is a good thing if u have a t4 already.also hinge pin holders so if u have the brass holders already like me u can just bolt them on. So it looks like it is not much needed to change over a t4,
just not sure if the top deck is the same or not have to go over part numbers.

Also the Internal Ratio stated as 2.375? This will not work in 13.5 blinky as I am not sure there will be enough space for 64p gears to get to around 4.09 fdr. any ideas?

According to my understanding FWD cars need a rather high internal ratio in order to keep the ratio between pinion and spur rather low. That way you can combine rather small spurs with rather big pinions in order to prevent the spur from coming too close to the body.
