Well the pink car was an Awesomatix A800

The BT-4 handles very well with the factory settings, but what I was very surprised of, is the durability. I drove it for two practice days, and nothing broke on it, except the body, although I had some very serious crashes. I attached a pic from the body so you can imagine the impact of the crashes.
So I have to say i am very pleased with this car, It definitely an entry level racing car without any modifications or tuning.

Any idea when this will be available in the US? Looks like it will be perfect for the wife to drive in VTA!

Appears to be a Hobbyking thing for now. No problem though, as most RC purchases are online now. Would be nice if this was picked up by other online retailers though (Tower, TQ, RCMart, ATees, etc)

It's a hobbyking thing because it's their product. It wont be available anywhere else in this guise.

You can buy it elsewhere as the Team C TR10 but it costs much more.

WOW! First to the body damage and not breaking anything, second for only getting run down by the Awesomatix! You were holding your own against every other car. Your driving skills help too.

I am in need of entry level touring car.. we run 21.5 foam tire class out here. This looks to be the ticket for me.

Any idea what price Hobbyking is going to retail these for? Sub $100 would be awesome!

hopefully Hobbyking will be more on the ball with spares than they have been with the M-Rage from the same manufacturer. I am reading a lot of posts from unhappy M-Rage owners that can't get spares

How much slop is there in the turnbuckles and ball ends? Actually want to replace the stock ones on my Awesomatix as they aren't the best, a lot of people go the X Ray ones but these look the same size (4.9mm)

I ordered one this morning. I think some parts are compatible with the KYOSHO TF7. I will confirm you as soon as I receive the kit of BT4

It's a clone. So I would imagine that many car parts would be compatible. The knuckles and arms look very similar to sakura Zero parts - which are a direct bolt on for xray and trf suspension parts.

At the end of the clone market is helping put more cars on the local tracks, which is a good thing.
