My overal impresson of 3racing chassis conversions is that they are durable and the part finish is good.

It will be interesting to see how good the drivetrain and suspension is on this car.

This cant suck. It has to be at least decent for the money. You cant expect them to not use what they have learned from developing hop up parts for all of the other cars that have been out. I keep thinking about the F109 and how it is amazingly like the Tamiya F103 or 104, but good design is going to follow trends, and if a new chassis is going to be competitive then it is going to look something like the leading platforms. Sorry! This car does look like a mix of all the cars that it has been accused of copying, but I would expect that from anything new. It has to look like something. Why not look a little like everything?

Let me ask you this. If you were going to design a brand new TC what would it look like and what features would it have? STOP POINTING AT THE T3!!!!

My biggest concern is, the development time, this was only instigated in October, so by the time they CAD it up, machine prototype parts, test etc, in such a short period, I can't see it being 'innovative' more, this bit works on this car, etc, but then, it may well be good.

Depends on the price, I may just order one!

So can we officially say that the color of the car is not pink but cherry blossom?

Actually I'm interested in seeing the real car. If priced right it could be good.

If it has the quality of their latest hop ups, and the same pricing of the fuijin then this car is going to really stir up the market.
A $250USD Racing TC chassis sounds like a great idea.

Come on 3Racing, bring it home

Actually it looks pretty good.

Even though they copied some things from the Photon it looks like they made a couple of improvements. When I had my Photon I cracked a couple of camber link plates from hard side crashes due to them being carbon fiber. The Sukura's are aluminum. Also it looks like the spur gear holder is off the Photon also but theirs is made of aluminum which should help with the fitment.

LOL! Works for me.

Wonder why they didn't just use a regular spur? Looks like a spur gear that hasn't had the teeh machined yet?

Oh well, it does look like a nice car...now let's see where the price lands.
