Gives new meaning to the cost of electric TC racing.

If its fast but no faster than anyone else's chassis, then it will be very pricey piece of "bling".

It its fast and beats everyone by more than a lap, then it will be the dagger that kills onroad TC.

Considering that this car offers adjustability without the need for;
  • additional spring sets
  • additional suspension blocks (toe blocks)
  • optional castor blocks
  • option rear hubs (outboard toe)
  • option ECS type axles
I think they are off to a good start. It has a bit of sticker shock on the front end but in the long term - the costs might be similar to other premium TCs. Will have to see what the real costs are.

Looking forward to picking one up. Good that there are options for different owners.

One of these cars was at the IIC right? If it was how did it do and what class was run? Also what all comes in the kit, I here it comes with everything needed like spool, ball diffs and gear diffs? Is this right?

I'm considering selling my Photon for one of these.
