I think this design will do well in mod but in stock...it might take alot to over come all that drive train.
But still its nice to see new designs, keeps everyone on their toes...

I don't like it at all... Don't like the saddle packs sitting like that... Don't like the esc hanging off the side in the back... Servo wires routed all over the car...

Nice design, I like the motor placement, but the electronics layout could use some work. If they could move the ESC inside the chassis I think it would help.

I must admit that I like the old design better than the new one....I guess it's cause no ones car even come close to looking like it, and that's what I love in a car.

That car looks like it weighs a ton. Remember the whole Keep It Simple Stupid rule? If you thought laying out the wiring on a normal car with a brushless system was tricky... You ain't seen nothin yet sunshine. Have fun reinventing the wheel though.

again someone is passing judgement on a proto type design. i really wish people would stop and think before they speak. see the other pic it looks more production from what is shown. and im sure a company like team magic said hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm lets make a car heavier then everything else in the industry. s

with the equipment they have do u really think they would come out with a car thats not gonna be a big desired car in this industry. please stop people just wait and see and i promise i wont say i told you so

i don't see how much more extra weight there is... 1 small belt + 2 more pulleys and some screws... I race a tamiya 415 and i need to add a stack of dead weight to meet the rule anyway

With all the great cars out there this year, a company knows their stuff better be good. Let's just hold on to out judgments until when or if it happens. It's fun seing different things.
