This will definitely be the next car I buy, considering I can sell all my Losi stuff and electronics to start fresh and all. Wicked car TOP. Looks to be a great design, can't wait to hear how it runs, and the Pro 4 suspension pieces will make it super easy on parts availability and options. The only thing I see so far is that there is no inner camber link options, and I don't like how the servo sits. But I can fix the servo thing, all I would like to see is more onboard camber link options. Delrin outdrives and pullies would be nice, but the stock ones always do work. Also, does anyone know if that spur mount will fit PRS gears (rcKenon?)?

Once again, great car, and glad to see that it will be under $400!

I drove the car this weekend and found i to be a good handling and stable car. I guess the closest comparrison i would give it is the TAO5. The car i drove had a spool with a 19 turn. VERY fast and stable in chicanes. Carried great speed in the sweepers as well. I am glad i got the opportunity to test it out. I would get one.definitely!

You are not crazy. Looking at that it gets at least half its parts from the yokomo range. Rayspeed shocks, BD bumber brace, steering blocks, I'd guess the bodyposts are too. It even has the stupid plastic "bumper" thing at the rear. This is just a few of the easy-to-spot bits. Still, the BD is an excellent car, and with that awesome top deck design on that car it should be very tweak free = perfect BD!

Also in a pic I'm looking at it seems to come with the crappy yokomo std driveshafts Throw these in the bin people, they will break down, very quickly in mod, as the pin will slide out and tear up the hub. Happens less frequently in stock/spec, but it still happens. On the other hand they could be the standard pro4/cyclone driveshafts, no pin problems but easily bent. Anyone who has run it found any driveshaft problems? Looks a mighty good car anyway

it looks like it has more parts that look to be from HPI,
