I think we need to start drug testing in R/C. That Cavalieri kid all of a sudden started winning everything and I heard his hat size has gone up three sizes since the beginning of the year.

omg look at that price tag

thats Tamiya territory and there is no way that losi compares to tamiya as far as craftsmanship also you really don't get alot for your money at least with tamiya you get alot of anodized aluminum stuff but this

Things like arms, bulkheads, shock towers, pivot supports, roll center pivots, carrier, hubs, servo mounts, etc. are molded graphite. For sure, many to be red or blue (?) colored aluminum upgrades at some point.

Not sure about the shocks shown in the picture. Doesn't look like a Tamiya. Is that a new Losi shock?

Yes new shocks. Hodge had them on his car this weekend.

One thing I DO like about the car, is how they have managed to incorporate the steering linkage below the top deck, but above the servo, that is really neat.

What I don't like about it, unless you are happy with running wires through belts, and right close to belts, your esc will have to go on top of the topd deck, which isn't really a problem, but the other issue, if you run any form of connector on your batteries, then they will have to go on a fly lead type afair. And like someone else said, for a top flight car, anodizied alloy would of been a nice addition to the kit, but then hey, what would they sell as after market hop-ups!!!
