Look forward to it being released.
I hear ya! I would just like to hear from some more owners of TOP products to get an idea of what to expect in terms of material qualities and fitment. Im guessing there are not many people in the US running TOP cars.?

But you will have to get an answer off EJ or Josh as to if the materials are better. But on that subject you have to remember that you get what you pay for and usually parts are priced well and if the performance is good and car is cheap as well as parts prices then it is not such a bad thing to change parts a little more often then you might usually as sometimes a part is not working as good as it should but you don't realise cause it still looks good especially in the drive train!!

Not only in US.
I could tell you i had never heard about somebody in Japan own 1 of these Scythe before Yamazaki-san ran with it on 2nd place in Japanese nationals expert class.
But the reason is just because TOP is just a small factory so is not well known .
Look, as you can see at official site, many HK drivers run Scythe.

On the old shocks they will fit if you change the lower spring cups.
The new ones look like that it will fit.

Yes i have. i got my Tekin RS Pro in yesterday and i'm going to test him tomorrow. now i wait for the new TOP.
I loved the CAD drawings.
Now i want the Solidwork files
Than i can turn the car around and look to some parts how they are designed
and measure them on strength and flex.
