Hi guys.... we have been quite busy with the Worlds and IIC back to back, just logged onto RC Tech to see this. Thanks for the thread and the kind words Mr. Elliot. Thanks to all.

We had a great race at the World Championships this year. As many of you may know, we really felt like we should have won the 2012 Worlds with Andy Moore in Holland. Andy got beat up at the start of A3 in Holland and there was no call from the ref. We left Holland with the fastest lap, the fastest 8 minute run, and a win in A2 but missed the top spot on the podium. It was quite heart breaking.

For the 2014 World Championships in Florida, we arrived with another good team and an arsenal of weapons to fight with. After qualifying was over, Marc Rheinard was 2nd and Hayato Ishioka qualified 8th. Both drivers used the new prototype car dubbed the "6b" which is based off the Altered Ego car.

As the race progressed, you could see Marc getting more and more competitive and confident. Unlike many of the A-finalists, Marc does not test or even run 1/12th scale between World events, his last battery on a 1/12th car was A3 in Holland in 2012, over 2 years ago. With him and mechanic Thomas Pumpler zoning in on the car setup and the driving, we were confident going into the mains that we really had a quick car and a solid chance to win the championship.

In A1, Marc snuck by T.Q. Naoto early and had some good pressure from a very fast Alexander Hagberg. Marc drove steady and took a solid win in A1. In A2, an early incident had Marc 3/4 of a lap off of leader Naoto. Marc put together a comeback from as low as 7th place, picking off positions one by one in a patient push to the front. With a little more than a minute left, Marc took the lead from Naoto and never looked back. His drive and performance in A2 was incredible. It is rare where a car and driver can make back almost a full lap to take the win at an event with such talented drivers. The car was dialed, the CRC tires were great and the driver amazing.

We are now back in the shop getting the "6b" (now called the Xti-WC) into a kit and available to the public. We are hoping for a mid-November release. With the exception of the stiffer green center spring Marc used, the production WC will be exactly like the car Marc drove, and all for a street price of just $199.

Thanks again for the nice words... see ya at the track!

Assembled mine today. Now to install the electronics and body. This is the thing I hate the most, painting a body. Looking forward to putting this one on the track soon.

Finished mine today. I have a few questions. Did yours come with a servo saver or no?

They don't come with a servo saver because not everyone runs the same servo so you'll have to buy one.
