Do you know if/when they will be coming out with a thinner top deck for the R11?

Haven't heard of a thinner top deck yet.

Hope they come out with one soon. I race on asphalt with medium grip and my xray really likes the thinner top deck, so I'm guessing the arc will be the same.

Well if the chassis is the same material as the R10, then it is quite a bit softer than the stock xray chassis.

IMHO, With the flex motor mount and the floating bell cranks I think the R11 has enough flex to really shine on asphalt.

looking at the price in comparison to the TC7....it's about $40 cheaper. what peaked my interest about this car in comparison to the TC7 was the seemingly lower shock towers. Generally speaking was the Associated a better kit than the ARC kit?

They will all be $419. Really it's about who gets them first. Hobby square will be the one.

In my experience the build quality of arc is miles ahead of associated.
