Finished my build today. I am very happy with the fit and finish. Build went very smooth. Can't wait to get it on the carpet.

Looks like the early kits have a low friction front belt included. I must say, the tolerances on the R11 is much better then ALL previous models. Looking forward to hitting the track.

This is the only kit I've ever built where the fit/finish felt every bit as good as Xray. This is a VERY nice car on the bench.

Hello fellow ARC friends. Wanted to say I'm excited to get back on the carpet after a 2 year vacation. I'm certain all of you are excited as I am on the release of this awesome race ready chassis, the ARC R11.

The previous R10 IMO was in the top runner for durability, fit/finish and simply a fast kit out the box. The only kit prior to this year I never had the opportunity to work on or race was the Yokomo. It's not an easy thing for myself to be 100% happy with the toys I have, grass is usually greener on the other side. With the R10 I was satisfied and stayed with the R10.

I have my R11 in route through UPS ground and looking forward to the build and getting this racer on the rug for the first time. I'll be attending the ROAR Regional Race held at Access Hobbies in Springfield, Ohio on the 19th and 20th of this month. I surely hope some can make it out, making for an interesting weekend. Ian Ruggles said the Soda and Pizza is on him... Just Kidding.

I'll share some pictures of my R11 once complete and give my honest opinion how this car performs. Especially on the durability POV. Two years off the carpet I'm sure the R11 will be tested.

Thanks Nick Malato, Barbara Ho and Hobby Authority for thinking of me and bringing me back on the team. You guys are awesome and on point

Stay tuned and will have an update within 12 hours. From my understanding we are sold out as the kit was extremely popular out the gate. Sold out quick. I do believe more will be in stock this week. I'll have 100% confirmation within 12 hours. You can also pre-order at Hobby Authority Distribution to secure your kit.

Agreed.

Panaracer is the spur of my choice. Never had any issues and still have the same spur gear from day one.

We will have more kits available for shipping in the later part of the month. Currently Hobby Authority Distribution has sold out and more are in transit. I will post a reminder once more have hit our stock.

Been using ARC spurs without issue. All above mentioned are great too.

I've just pulled the trigger and ordered one! Should be with me tomorrow.

Are there any build tips/things to look out for from those who have already sorted theirs? Any extra bits worth buying from the off?
