Default New Us Made Touring Car

Guys we are working on a new touring car made in the Us with a great price
point and all the features the racers want.

This will be a pro sedan with a less than 300.00 dollar price point. All testing and design will be done here in the Us because we now things are much different.

Front DCJs standard in the kit.

64 pitch spur standard.

Easy spur removal (no need to disassemble the top deck)

Those 3 off the top of my head.

Parts reliability and availability is at the top of my list. A non complicated setup, and no need for additional hop ups to be competitive are also high on my list. If I have to dump an additional $1-200 on hop ups I'm not really interested. This seems to be the way manufacturers are going these days.

Ill keep an eye on this kit, Ill be buying a new chassis after this summer.

Not IMO. They increase the cost of the car, and many many people really don't need them. IMO, it's better to keep the costs down and just have an affordable, robust option part.

I'm also curious if the car will actually be fully made here in the states. I.e. all materials and parts machining, plastics molded, etc...

As for features...
- I don't see a lower / upper hole in that motor mount
- A top deck would be nice... looks like it's not included?

Default Molds

Mold cost is the key but we stumbled onto some new great technology for sure

That is one cost that drove allot of company's to china.
