Needs some trick mud gards to go with the wing.

How long will that front center drive shaft last with that big of a bind? It looks more offset than a Losi.

Nah it looks about the same as Losi to me. If it can last three gallons like my EU spec, it should be fine.

JQ Lord knows I've taken issue with some things you said way back but I have to give credit where credit is due. THE Car looks GREAT

Good Luck with it. I may even pull the trigger on one this winter as it seems Kyosho has had a bit to much Saki of late with pricing.

Thank you all.

About the black anodising, that really depends on the track, some tracks it lasts long, some it lasts one race and half the chassis is scratched and silver.

And I havent had a diff fall out! That was my only concern, specially when running it in the rear position, that it would move, but it doesnt.

What do you think about THE Wing?
wing design does look kinda cool, sort of "batlike" - good looks don't always relate to good performance however (my ex is a case in point! ) - was the design tested anywhere other than on the car itself? Also seems to follow the lines of the "JQ" logo too. Again was that intentional or just a good outcome of testing? Would it be fair to say it looks like quite a flexible material used? One last thing, of the 6,721 JQ logo designs that i seem to have seen I think you have chosen the best one for THE Car - stamping the receiver box is a nice touch too. As frustrating as the delays you have faced over the years have no doubt been, what I have seen so far suggests it will be worth the wait.

MILO: It was designed for EURO and USA tracks. I have some adjustments on it not found on other cars, purely for this reason. I dont want to make a US version, and a EU version, I prefer to make one size fits all. This is why I have kept it secret for so long. I will explain those features during the next few weeks.

About the logo, yes I cant figure that damn thing out!

Cool maybe you could race the Byrons Fuel race Sept. 30th - Oct. 2nd at the Nitro Pit. Good luck with the car, it looks good.
I think I will be there just before, for PL race and JBRL.
