Either that engine is larger than a conventional .12/.15 or it's a cheap one. Look at the heatsink.

i thought the chassis mounted throttle servo was cool

weird looking belt tensioner - but interesting they've added a 5th body post in the center. Could be a big plus for a touring car!

This looks like the new replacement to their Vampire 1/10th car.
Is there a release date on this car? This is only a CAD drawing.

All you need is one good T-Bone on the left hand side and you are out for good. The throttle linkage and receiver will be destroy. I have to admit that it is kind of clever how they designed the throttle linkage.

Since they are part of K-Factory, do you guys think it will be imported by Trinity?

The 5th body post is nothing new. I believe most of the top guys at the world meet last year in Ohio had a 5th body post. If you look at Mark Pavidis car, it's there.
