Dont know if anyone has started a thread on this, it caught my eye the other day.

Looks interesting and quite a stray from the norm. Forget lipo though.

just a thought but you would have to protect your batteries as a big crash may short them!

It looks like a combination of the Team Losi JRX-S Type R, Traxxas Nitro 4-Tec and the X-Ray T1.

I don't like it at all.... Why would you want your ESC hanging off the side of the car like that???

They tried too hard to make the chassis as narrow as possible...

and we really don't need another entrance into TC....

I did get to see this car in person at the I-Hobby Expo in Chicago a few weeks back. The design is super cool, but there is one important thing that is missing......There is no upper deck, the only torsional strenght is has is via the lower chassis plate. Like TRINITY and MAGIC says, it is still in the Prototype stage. Nonetheless it is still a cool design.

Default several threads

there are a few thread already on the prototype car.

Trinity is the TeamMagic distributor? That may not be a good thing for a car.

In 1/8th scale buggy there are over 30 manufacturers with a race car so I think there is still room for a couple more in TC.

looks interesting but didnt Josh Cyrul try out a 3 belt car a few years ago? I think he ran it at the Snowbirds.

I wonder if you use really small electronics can you mount the receiver and the speed control in the same spot???

Different design for electric - that's for sure.
