I guess the street price will be $260-280 like the G+, if it was really to cost $350 they wouldn't have give a the Skoda body with it.

if its around the g+ price.. that is more like it.. but $350 is a little much

but, I do like the design of the car.. although it does look like a pain to hook up the battery..

LOSA0251 XXX-S Graphite Plus Touring Sedan Retail: $479.99_ Street: $269.99


Is it possible to use gold connectors (euro plugs) on the battery, looking at the picture it seems that it could touch the belt.

Look at it this way. Its a brand new car with brand new parts. Thats gonna be a higher cost to cover all the new things. The only molds they were able to keep looks like the caster blocks, steering knuckles and rear hubs.

James, were you running the new car or the old car last weekend?

Actually the steering knuckles are different. They have 2 holes to attach the tie-rods to similar to the TC4.

I'm not sure this is a fully production pic. The inner hinge ping mounts appear to be machined aluminum. The production pic from the hobby show shows molded bits.

Default Does it come with 3mm chassis plate?

At $350 it should come with all the hopups including a oneway. As far as it being a new car the TC4 is 75% all new molded parts and it's still at $200. That's a moot point for me. If it comes with everything in 3mm CF, molded graphite, and titanium. I'll consider it.
