Guys;

I like the Center Battery placement (ala Pro-3). Would like to actually Drive it to see how well it handles before plunking my $$$ down on one.

The creator of this vehicle is one of the coolest cats, period.

There is already a driver for the vehicle, but I am on the list to Purchase one, this is a must have car, did anyone check it out at the RCX. I've got some really cool pictures of it.

I know the people who are PTI and I hope this car works out for them. I saw it when it was a prototype and one of the local fast guys was testing it. I'm very anxious to see the production version. The prototype was a little heavy but was said to steer really well.

Is there only a single shock in the front? How on earth does that work? It looks cool, but would LOVE to know how it works. . .

I realize the rears work with bellcranks. . .

I LOVE the low profile. . .

Looks like it is riding on a pin with bearings. When the suspension compresses then the pin is forced to rotate backwards thus compressing the shock.

This car looks more like a collection item then a real true race car...I think that it will not be able to really compete against the X-Rays, XXX-S, TC3's and Yokomos

I think it looks cool, but I would have to drive it first to be convinced.
