I think the rear pod will be very sturdy due to three things: 1. the pod is concave instead of "square" thereby adding strength to corner points. 2. The "x" cross brace design further strengthens potential stress points. 3. From what it looks like the entire rear pod is one piece which includes the bottom plate which should further eliminate potentially weak connection points. Just some thoughts.

Yeah... this is the 1/24 car. Have seen this already. The big secret is around the 1/12 car.

yeah, that 1/24 doesnt look at all interesting, much like the TGR sinister, or stuff like that, but must be a looker with serpent on it. Never thought id see them make a micro. i really want a look at the 1/12. At the nuremburg fair, there was only two new 12ths announced, the serpent, and the associated?

Congrats dude! I'm jealous... that 1/12 looks dialed.

i wonder how similar it will be to the associated design, and i wonder if some parts will be interchangeable with it.

Be sure, you can not compare those two cars.
Also, all parts are our own....no AE, CRC or other parts...

oh, i wasnt comparing it to the associated, im just saying a lot of cars are based on the RC12 design, so i was just wondering. Its usually nice to have it based on a wider platform, since theres more part support, and interchangeability.
