Are you going to carry this kit? If so I'll probably order one. I was thinking of an evo but might just wait for this one to drop.

I'm curious about the design of this car. As mentioned by Lz, the balance appears to be very far forward which makes me hesitate. It would be nice to hear the designers explanation.

I think the main difference is that the ESC can still be placed in front of the motor as normal whereas on all the other Mid motor cars so far the ESC must be placed behind the motor. I'm hoping on th 20m there's a second fan mount position in front of the motor so you can mount the ESC at the back if you wish. All the extra space is thanks to the reverse bellcrank steering which I'm glad they've kept.

the esc could be mounted either way depends on the weight , my tekin doesnt weigh as much as a hobbywing so i could get away with it upfront , i think john Dukakis posted on his blog the MMCX with both layouts

Plus about 100usd of aluminium & Ti screw kit to get it under the weight limit... still a bargain. In fact you could get an advance 20m with alu options. 2x spring sets, 3x extra diffs (custom select the parts so you get the Alu out drives) ARB set, spare suspension plastics all for less than the basic price of an xray T4!!

They are very brittle and prone to breaking (way more than other brands) at the sway bar connector. Yes staying off the wall is always a good idea, but not always possible.

Like the guy above, I've broken 2 sets of front arms, all at the sway bar mount. Another issue is the material they are using for the body post is way too brittle. I've had both the front ones get sheared in half somehow.
