Thats a T-spec car. It's actually imported and not that great of a car. But its what you must use if you want to run their T-spec class. I think there were discussions about this already.

Yeah I saw that. It looks pretty good, kind of like a yokomo? I was thinking of getting one to get back into 1/10th, since it's a very good price! But I got used TC3! Might still look into this one?

Looks like someone held a TC3 up to a mirror and took a picture. Will help expand the class though.

I have one on backorder. I know most of you guys wouldn't be cought dead with a "cheap" car. I'm buying one . By the way it's "inexpensive" not cheap . If it works I'm a happy guy. If not I'll buy Pro4 and still be happy because I didn't throw away lot of money.

How do the T-specs work out on the track? I'm thinking of getting one for a parking-lot car...can't beat $150 off the shelf. But if its a phile then I'll stick with the 'C3

BTW: Where do you get parts for these things?

this car is made in china.......

check it out>>> www.acme-rc.com

I was planing to buy the t-spec, but I read on the other topic about this car that you can't change the gear ratio because the motor mount is fixed...... On trinity's forum I was told that the car comes with metric spur and also comes with a kimbrough adapter.....

I also got fed up when I saw the pics from the acme-rc.com, the car seems to be very fragile and is very, very ugly hauauaauuahuauauhauhahauuaha!!!


Ill wait for the release and try to check with trinity some informations, specially about gearing the car!!!

The purpose of the car is to create a "spec" class for 4WD touring cars. It appears to be one more way of evening the field, I suppose.
