Yawn.

Looks nicely made and a good spec, but the same as every other TC. Would have been nice to see something more radical given their last car.

Lots of machined parts on that ride. Not really sure how the steering link would work. Servo being placed where the servo mounts are and the black ball cup being where the linkage attaches, I see lots of interference could be going on there. I also see lots of stress being put on the servo as stress would be diagonal. Maybe it's just the picture.

Really loving all the machined alum parts you get with the kit.....PRICE????

i'm thinking more along the masses. love what oleg is doing, but i think it is too much at once for our small brains. i'd like to see someone integrate the torsion spring/dampening system into a c-hub type suspension in order to make it more palpable/tangible for the group.

they really shouldnt use the e4 name for this model as its pretty missleading. maybe a different number as its a different layout.

cant really blame them for going all copycat though. the e4 was pretty different and that scares a lot of people away who want a sure thing. still gonna get a e4rs to play around with though.

unfortunately a700, as different and innovative as it is, will stay in the ferarri price point i think. wife would murder me if i ever spent $800 on a toy car lol. i think i spent that much on my fully running tc5 AND NTC3 with all tools/support gear.

I wish they would have stayed closer to what they had before. I loved the E4 cause it was pushing the limits like the Losi (which is still a great car). I agree that this look like some of the other cars that are out but maybe that's a good thing.
