There is no need to buy a kit to go on a thread.... The product needs to make you want to buy it, and you can't decide just on a name.... I am sure the Capricorn nitro Car's success will ease things up for their electric TC, but most racers do need these pics, and vids to be persuaded that buying Capricorn is the right move for them....

I actually do know since I'm a lot more involved in the development process.

Regarding F1, remember Brawn Gp?

I do agree that in nitro racing they have far more experience and knowledge so the chances of designing a new car performing well right away were higher, but nevertheless their EP tourer cannot be that far off the pace.
About quality I don't know as I have never built one but their nitro cars do look stunning and if the electric car follows the same philosophy it should be quite good.
I have assembled Xray and Awesomatix cars and I do agree that they are the very top in quality.

Exactly

At Capricorn they have shown that they have the capability and engineering knowledge to come up with cars which are competitive straight away.
I agree it will be more difficult in the EP class since the level is simply higher compared to nitro and it's more about the fine details.

It should be a good car, no doubt.

It's incredible how many manufacturers are launching electric TC's these days. That gives us:

TOP
Tamiya
Kyosho
VBC
Capricorn
Yokomo
Xray
HB
Serpent
Team magic
AE
Spec R
3 racing
Corally
Schumacher
Team titan
Awesomatix

That's 17 manufacturers with a high-end TC ! incredible, it's just the widest diversity any RC class has ever seen at any time, for sure. And I'm not even counting varitions within brands ( CEFX, RSD, Exotek... )

Nope not yet and unfortunately Capricorn postponed the release because of the Worlds...

First kits should have been shipped to me this week, but unfortunately as said before they have postponed it, not sure if they will ship next week or the week after as it is now...

A lot of companies already start a pre order when they only have cad pictures up. Imho you don't need actual pictures if you can produce some good renders.
I do agree we need some better pictures, but I would be satisfied with some full color renders.
The ebay site is just a reseller, not Capricorn themselves.
They will add it to the site when it's available.

I'm selling the car for $517 including shipping to customers outside the EU.
The €490 is the European price which includes tax (20%)


The car just won the warm up for the Italian nationals last week.
It TQ'd, won the finals, and set a new track record!.

They are currently finishing up on the manual and are waiting on some aluminum parts.
Next week the Nitro worlds will start in Thailand, basically the entire team will head out to Thailand so everything will be on halt for two weeks.

After they return from the worlds all information will be up asap and the kits will be shipped out to the dealers.


Some more details:

For the pulleys and geardiff Capricorn uses a specially Kevlar/ PTFE enhanced plastic. This gives very low wear and a smoother drivetrain. Because of the PTFE dirt doesn't stick to the pulleys, this keeps them a lot cleaner and frees the drivetrain up even more!.

Yeah the price is high inside Europe, because we have high sales tax. In DK itīs 25%...

But we deduct the sales tax for customers outside Europe, so our price will end on 510USD for the car and shipped by Fedex you end on a total of app. 540USD...

Thatīs a fair price compared with other brands on the market
