Default Z-Car Info??

Does anyone on here know any info on the Z-Car 1/8th scale off road buggy? I believe that Gobal Hobby is the/is going to be the distributor for them. Is there anyone here in the States driving it yet and any reviews? Also, what is anyone's take on SH engines (good, bad, ugly, lasting, etc.)? And last question is is anyone using Airtronics servos for their buggies, which ones, and how do you like them. Sorry for so many questions, but just curious. THANKS!

RE engines: I think SH engines lack QC considerably.. I had a SH 28 Pro Spec, it was the biggest heap of junk I have ever owned. I broke in the engine using the Stephen Bass method and the rod just went after a gallon blah blah..

Some folks have had a lot of luck with SH engines, but I certainly didnít.

I can not comment on the Z car as I have never seen or driven one...

Hey man dont worry about asking all the questions because you got to find out some how. SH Engines is a great company that strives to find what is best for racers. They make great engines that will run with the high dollar Italian engines but with out the $400 and $500 prices.I can tell you one thing if you are looking for another engine strongly consider looking at SH's lines of engines and you wont be disapointed.As for the Z-Car I am suppose to be getting it soon but I cant give you any details on the cars time to hit the market or how much it will cost.This buggy will be awesome and all the team drivers that have ran it are having great luck with the car. It is very innovative and very light without sacraficing durability. The last thing is the Airtronic products which I cant say alot about because I am a Futaba man. Hope this helps.
