it's fun to watch the t/c designs evolve. they sort of devolve before evolving. if only because we're using parts that already exist for some of the components.

still, i love to see people's creativity at work. this one is fun to look at.

That's a pretty sweet looking car imagine all the low-profile bodies that you can fit over that thing

Looks nice. So far 2 places seems to have very innovative designs. Would love to see them both go at it against all the other TC on the market.

I am doubtful of handling with that design.
Will not the car has trouble to make tighturns corners?

The Revo's shocks work just fine, right? Don't see why these wouldn't

The list price on their site isn't that bad honestly, cheaper than most top-of-the-line kits. Of course, that's given that the quality and finish is excellent, but it looks good!

i wonder how well will those shocks hold up on an impact i know i know, anything will break if u hit hard... but those shocks seems to be sitting too close to the front and rear...

otherwise, a very interesting design. i like the 4.5mm single deck idea. it's like a pan car

It should be called the t-rex, 'cause its got wee little arms...

It looks like the prototype Type Rs that where made right after the JRXS was released. I like how easily it appears to install the servo and the battery. It looks pretty cool for sure.

I can't see where to adjust camber. It's certainly different.

Just looks like a Losi, but with a few more design 'features';

What stops the bulkheads on either side from moving with chassis flex without the use of a shock tower etc. I know it has another oversized countersunk screws underneath but still...

Motor mount only has two screws supporting it.

Very short wishbones and upper links etc. The Losi hasn't done well on our outdoor tracks so this might suffer.

At least it is slightly different. Just can't help thinking that the linkages etc for the shocks just make it unnecessarily complicated
