too bad they kept the very old suspensions from the TF series !

I remember seeing two prototypes of electric cars (a touring and a buggy) last year, and they were supposed to be produced. So I'll say, wait and see...

guys what the hell are you talking about. the car looks awesome! if that middle top plate is removable, (to adjust flex) i can really see it being a good car.

it looks perfect as a carpet setup car. VERY STIFF.

might not be so suited to dusty tracks. me likey!

And when you get tired of your competition at the track, swap out a few extra goodies and run them over!

It's just plain over-designed if you ask me.

You don't need a top deck AND outriggers.

You don't need a seperate part fitted to the gearbox to mount the shocks.

Just unnecessary weight and complexity - simplicity works.

it's like they took a current shaft car and decided they needed all those and MORE to make a new car.

sometimes less is better.

Interesting. At least the drivetrain will hold up.

Maybe they are trying to stop or at least reduce chassis tweak. I'd rather have the extra parts and a nice rigid chassis than a lightweight flexy-flyer.

Now the seperate part to fit the tower might be uncalled for....

IMO Both those cars look pretty sweet

Some of those parts can't be production....Anyone who'd put those knuckles/allum extenders on a final car deserves to be slapped. And those gear boxes are big and ugly.

Otherwise, I hope Kyosho does it....I think if they did everything right it could be a nice car. If not, I'll get the chassis out of the Tower Daily sale after a year or two and make a cross brand shaft car with TC3 suspension parts
