Great car! I've really enjoyed running the car this year. I really like the design. Maintenance is pretty easy and straightforward. Reliability and durability has been very good. Parts and support from rctarget.com in the US.

I prefer my 804 than my IF18 and as I feel the 804 has more on power steering. Also as the 804 uses bigger 21mm bearings on 4 corners it lessen the interval of bearing changes than the IF18 or previously my MRX6R. However, space for pipe/manifold on the 804 is a bit finicky, as I found some pipe/manifold combination (e.g Nova 2015 with the longer pipe mount tip with the Nova 41014 manifold) would have the tip of the pipe touching the steering plate, but the same combo would not have the same problem on the other cars.

Have this issue with OS and ONE pipe/manifold. Did wonder if optional OS M03 header may make it easier. The precision hubs is a nice option part too with bearing sitting in an aluminium insert. Bearings are smaller than standard setup too.

I believe RC Target should be getting cars soon. Call them to make sure.
