That's a US thing done through the US Distributor. It will be an option.

Also, the release date is on schedule. I know a lot of conjecture was thrown around after this was first announced as to when this would be available for purchase... first part of March was the target.

With the R12 comes with a completely new design of the following. Pulleys, differential and bulkheads. Also the motor mount is now an all new single piece to reinforce the chassis and help reduce belt skipping. New bulkheads will relocate the anti-roll bar to a lower position. All this will help lower the overall center of gravity on the R12.

Looks like they incorporated the split upper deck design of the new Awesomatix. Nice..

This is as bad as Xray with their 4 months of preview videos. I wonder if they too will release the car but then not update their website for a month and also forget a bumper brace lol

Default Release date?

What happened to this car? Are there any information out regarding the "real" release date?

Regards,

Andy Iím pretty sure with whatís going on in the world at this time the Ďrealí release date isnít of great importance
I, like a lot of other ppl who were eagerly awaiting the R12 arrival will get one when this world wide problem is resolved
For me a new toy car is the least of my concerns atm, staying safe & healthy for my family & friends takes priority

The R12 looks/sounds very promising. May be time to sell my R11s and prepare my wallet.
