Looks to me that team majic may want to review false advertisement laws or at least delete there in acurate chart.. Its pretty deceiving to see a chart on there website showing this thing as priced the same as the 150$ cycloneS when in fact its priced even above the t2r was.. Its too bad..

But even at 250$ it represents good value

i saw wolfhobbies and the price is ridiculous. Still a nice car though, but would be better if the graphite parts dont cost $90 for a freakin upper deck, and if the car was like $200.

at a low pricepoint, was going to try this for an extra car, and to let my son learn on. I've never had anythjing team magic, so it was killing two birds with one stone.

However, with the increased price point, i'm going to have to go with a tamiya or cyclone.

who knows, maybe its a supply/demand thing and the price will come down.

its too bad, the price point is too high to justify "trying" a new brand.

Its hard to swallow 250$ for the car and 35-65$ shipping, when i can get a TC5 at a LHS for under 340$CND..

I dont understand how there chart shows the car just above the Cyclone at 150$ but comes out with a 250$ price tag.... ITs to bad this car really could have made its mark in new areas if it was more affordable..

yeah. the same thing happened with the nitro JS. It looked great, and people thought it would be really cheap, but when it came out, the price was just like $100 less then the pro model. I love TM too, but too bad

Unhappy

For the time they had it on RCshopping it was listed at 175.00 and now that wolf is the retailer it went up 70 bucks. I was looking at it too for my son, as a starter.

A used cyclone is 200-250 bucks, or a older xray, like a t2007, or a tc5.... I think im going the used car route for a 2nd car

Too bad, because the TM is a cool car

Nice car, i just wish it'd use geared diff as Serpent does.

Its such a shame that no others have seen the light.

how is the weight of this version compare to E4FS and E4RS?

Can the rear toe-in be set at 0?
