Default It looks awesome....

As a froumla 1 fan I know where Bruce got the plans/idea for it....

Mclaren!!!! Who got them from Ferrari!!!


I like the design of the front and it looks like it would be a son of a gun to set it up right, 6 turnbuckles to adjust... Looking at the front end pics it looks like it would add a lot weight to the front end. How much does it weight race ready?

I was kind of intimidated by it at first too, but once I saw Bruce do it once I realized how simple of a concept it was. I think I will try and post some pics of adjusting the front end so everyone can see just how simple it can be.

With a GTX, IB4200's, Spektrum Micro RX, Personal Transponder, and a CO27 it was weighing in at somewhere around 850g. I was also using a lightweight Speed 12b body, very little paint on the body and only four stickers. Which was kind of weird since Garrett's car had a bigger receiver and was coming in 20g lighter...

i had the big stuff in mine and was only 26g overweight...

gotta say the new front end intimidated me also, but i went over to bruce and asked if he would explain how to do it, needless to say once you see how to do it its pretty much the easiest thing,

if anyone has questions to what it will do to the "average" driver, at a big race like the iic i am usually 1-1.5 seconds a lap off the pace, i usually race offroad and put very little time into onroad, but on my second run i was pulling 11.6's, which is only a couple tenths off, that suprized me...lol, car was very easy to drive, but me being there for "work" i cant put any time into racing and usually have to miss most of my quals and pretty much my main....

everyone wants there motor rebuilt for the main...lol

It will be a full kit, less the electronics tires and body. Pricing I think you may need to wait a bit.

Does anyone know the release date for a Rev5?

On the site it says the 2nd week in Oct. Does that mean the 14th, or just sometime this week?

Itching to order.

I'm beginning to think you may not be smart enough for an r/c car. The 2nd week in October means from the 7th to the 13th.

You should have warned us that this contains adult content Beavis!
Is it wrong that this excites me in ways I won't begin to describe here?

Good to see kits are out the door,
Nick
