EA, is that the kit chassis or the asphalt chassis? I don't remember what the appearance difference is.

That is the asphalt chassis and top deck. The chassis are the same visually but is 2.0mm for asphalt and 2.5 stock. The top deck is different. Other than the chassis/top deck and the Ti screws its a box stock kit.

Nothing, you should go ahead and spend twice as much on one of those other cars that it looks like.

Street price will vary with dealer but somewhere between 325 and 350. It comes with sway bars, ti turnbuckles, all the roll center blocks, New improved shocks, alumn servo mounts, every piece of alumn on the car is blue, and parts will be readily available and economical.

EA, I am going to assume you now have a production kit. If so, does it come will all of the sway bars? How about the rear hubs, what degree toe-in come with it? How about for adjusting the rear toe-in, does it come with the plastic/metal pieces to change it at the bulkheads? Thanks!

Yes the car pictured is a full production kit...boxed with instructions!! It comes with 1.25 and 1.5mm sway bars. It comes with 0 degree rear hubs. It comes with some nice large foot printed clips to adjust the inboard toe and track width with. I say large foot printed as when you clip them on they support the whole hinge pin block and not just part of it as with other cars. They are .9, 1.3 and 1.7mm's thick roughly.

Car looks nice...but Stormer has it listed for $399. Last time I checked at my LHS that was the same exact amount they want for the Losi, both T2-007's and the new Schuie. So im not sure where the "its half as much as the other top cars" are coming from ? If its $200 I'll definitely get one.
