An all black R10 would be awesome.

It's good to see that a lot of existing parts will still fit new platform.

Very cleverly pitched with the only caveat being the price point (didn't see anything, so can't comment). But if it's at a lower price than current top TC offerings from established manufacturers, it is a very tempting proposition and I think it may make a sizeable dent in their sales. If quality is on par, it will start a new era in the TC market by moving the battle for market share from technology to marketing.

If you are referring to X-ray/yokomo then it will be,the quality is equal to if not better than both of these cars & if pricing is along the lines of the previous model it will be cheaper also,of course this is just my opinion & many will probably disagree. when I built my r10 2013 it was the best quality kit that I have built since the 07 X-ray, & out of the box the best performing car I have had to date.

The R10 aluminum is milled with the same precision as the top brands. The plastics provide slop free performance without sacrificing strength. So I'd say its quality is among the best.

For me the benefits are not just in the initial build quality which is superb. More importantly the longevity of that quality. I have a number of cars some 2 years old which are basically as tight as when they were built.

Add in the lower price point ARC have got an awesome product.

We should have official pricing this week. The goal is to keep it close to the previous kit as we can. So I think everyone will be happy.

And as for the quality..... I think those guys hit the points on that

I see some of the kits are delivered and drivers completing their builds. Anticipating the reviews.

We should have kits in the US next week, depending on customs...

Early reports are good ----- like we expected anything else!!!

Also pricing should be good as well. Lower than the top priced 3-4 brands, about same ballpark as the 2013 - even with more hops ups included in the kit. Great value for the performance and build quality of the kit

Hi Nikos. Will the price for the 2015 upgrade be lower than the previous one since were using the same chassis?
