Very XRAY. 100% sure the reason for the delay is because they canned the previous R12 as soon as the T4'20 came out so that they could copy it more closely. With maybe the opportunity of a small refinement around the drivetrain and top deck to solve some of the niggles with the T4'20s layout.

Where are you coming up with this bearing size information? ARC has always used 5x10x4mm bearings.

Hey guys, a couple of racers and I have been looking for a new car to start our mid-motor experience for tcs. One of the lhs will be bringing in the Arc12 and i am just trying to source information for this car before we decide if this is the right car for us. I hope i don't offend anyone here as the questions i am asking might not sit too well with some people.

I am running a Yokomo, and the other drivers are running awesomatix and xray. We are very happy with our cars and respective brands but just want to support the lhs. We understand that most modern tcs can be made to go fast and we have a decent amount of experience racing and running tcs. What we are more worried about is the durability and wear on the parts. For example the yokomos have relatively weak swingshafts/driveshafts compared to the other brands. Are there any such concerns with the Arc cars? Any potential weak links?

I understand the new car isn't being run yet but based off the Arc11, with all things being equal... How does the Arc11 hold up durability and wear wise. Also how big of a window is there for setup tolerance. My yokomo runs well even if poorly setup but the awesomatix needs a good setup to drive well.

The price point for the car falls into the higher end of things so we would just like to know more about the car... Especially since we would be giving up our current cars that are running well in favour of the Arc.

P. S. We run open mod so this is something to take into account of....
