This exactly.

Wishing Ryan the best of luck no matter what as he's a nice dude it seems, and I'm also hoping for a breakthrough-design car.

It's quite easy to measure the CoG height if you use RC Crew Chief.

It is easy enough to calculate if you have a set of scales and some time as well. Though it doesn't really matter much, if it looks low, it usually is.

This can go on the 'maybe baby' list, I've still got too much carbon on a waitlist from Ryan. I like the idea of getting a FWD, I just bought an X4'24 kit

have done this, anytime i change a big component on the car.

occupational hazard.

but, i still wish the RC brands would adopt some of the practices carried over from full scale as far as kinematics go and include some of that info in their build manual instead of just pages of how to put the car together. y'know, shit like this:

Can this be calculated while the kit is unassembled, inside of bags, in the box, at the store?

whilst no doubt being very close to AMX for many years means Ryan knows the platform inside out - it won’t be “based off” the AMX.

you’re all in for a surprise I expect.

Unless the colour of the anodizing is documented by pantone code or spectrum in µm, you're just not serious, are you?

RC Maker does a lot of clever things. This car design should be great.
I haven't seen it or anything.
I just can't wait.
