Its not a bad looking ride from the pics I have seen. The car seems to be pretty capable too, it tq'd our Rc pro event over the weekend and just barely missed the win.

I think right now I the US there are not many kits around but I think that will be changing in the near future. I worked with the creator of SWorkz when i was racing for GS as he also designed the CLX Buggy and his abilitys are endless.

IT is a good looking car. A lot like an MBX6 but some differences (shock geometry is different, like AE, dirt guards inside wheels, etc.). Not crazy about the large diameter gearbox bearings. Didn't that not work out too well for the Xray?

I think Tony Newland's company is going to bring this kit in?

Davidka, I'm building one right now and those large diameter gearbox bearings didn't make it in the production kit. They went with a more standard pinion and bearings front and rear in the production kit. I guess in their prototype testing they found the same issues that Xray did.

PS, I'm taking a number of build notes, will post when my build is complete. Nate.
