Yeah, it looks as JQ stepped up the bar for RTR's. He has the Alpha .21 3 port pull start motor in it. Which IMHOP will be the best RTR motor of them all to date. It will make a perfect power band and reliability for new comers.

The weak point and often first to be replaced is the servos in all RTR's, JQ went ahead and already put Savox's in it.

Last It retails for $399 which is perfect for new comers also. JQ really hit the nail on the head with this RTR.

Ya i thought that also. He didnt just put some servos and called it good, he basicly said if i was buying this product would i want to replace servos in a months time? NO. I really like how he has the price at 400$ which to me makes it the deal of them all i mean RC8 rtr is about 500$ and doesnt come near to this, same with the HB version of there rtr

Unfortunately, chances are you will be replacing the servos in a months time with 83 oz/in at steering. Unless you plan on babying the car around a parking lot, not driving it that much, or aggressively, it's unlikely that servo will will be suitable for the long haul. A lot of people burn that servo up in 1/10th SC trucks.

TheRTR seems like a step in the right direction, including the fact it's race legal, but the bottom line is: there is no such thing as a cheap, reliable, and fast 1/8th nitro buggy.

On the other hand people might have already tested this combo and might not have any issues at all,I guess we just have to wait and see before jumping to any conclusions

The servos have been tested, and the steering servo is enough for running on a track. It is strong and fast enough

As usual, the handsome stance every JQ TheCar has.

Sure you have your specs right?

If you've never driven the JQ car, I would say give one a try. Very awesome. They work very well with proven durability.

Good looking RTR JQ.

As for servos, people just LIKE super-fast and torquey servos they are not a pre-req. Not to mention 1/8 scales eat up servos anyway due to the nature of the beast. The cars are big n heavy and fairly durable, so that means something has got to give when you go for that 20 foot quad and miss. Also you have the vibration from the engine... all and all tough on any servo. I'm sure if the end points are set right you'll see reasonable life out of them.

Sure do.

http://www.savoxusa.com/Savox_SC0253...avsc0253mg.htm

Speed(@6.0V sec/60): .15
Torque(@6.0V oz-in): 83.3

Not sure why there is misinformation between the JQ release and Savox (it'd actually be 6 kg/cm, not 8kg/cm)... of course in reality it likely has less than whatever the real specs are.

Not putting my losi out but i just Pre ordered it, i just want to see how the kit is. If it's good to my drving style then i'll keep both losi and The Car and kinda see what car likes what on set ups at my track. If one does better then the other i will keep one. YAY!!! I am sure i will have to upgrade stuff on JQ though like more lightweight parts so i am gonna just see how the rtr is and report back
