Looks pretty cool. Fitting electrics will be tight. Whats with the cell cutouts on the motor side of the chassis.?
The chassis looks like it will flex with the extra cutouts.
Nice to see another touring car come out. Will it be avail. here in states?

I just got this from one of our team members... so far, happy with the way it drives (runs pretty similar to a 415)! It's really a shelf car because of it's rarity, but I just couldn't resist running it this past weekend... it should be going back to being a shelf queen again soon.

The Neo version uses a different setup than the rack. You can't really see it in the pictures but on the parts page at hobbymania you can see the bellcrank setup it uses
