Interesting...that front suspension shot looked like their nitro car so it should be nice and strong.

200mm EP ? "c'est celaaa, oui "

Not sure if the guy is running foams or rubber (kind of looks like rubber but the geometry says foam , eg rear camber link).

Anyway it makes so little sense I'm thinking it's just a home made conversion.

There was a bit on redrc a while back about it. Basically Pietsch just did a conversion of the nitro car to play around with in the winter.

Supposedly Robbie Collins MBX6-Eco short course conversion was sent to Mugen Japan to be put into production...

Might be the same deal with this.

Looks very similar to the Corally C4 from the late 90s. That was 1/8th Serpent suspension mated to an electric chassis and transmission.

So it's like a regular TC, only more expensive, probably heavier, and illegal to race pretty much everywhere. Nice !

He's running Solaris Mediums. Those are the tires that work best at the West Coast track.
