well, you didnt, it was your dog which ate up your bumper !

compared to S10, maybe its true but we are comparing apples and oranges here. a shaft driven with a belt driven. a super sized and a 1/10.
actually, what is so revolutionary about V1R? I mean they were the last among the big names to release a competitive 1/10 car (not to mention the Spider before that). All they have to do is to get all the best features from other cars and put it in the V1R.

it is a revolutionary of itself, Kyosho. parts are much durable then its brother, super then FW04 etc....

Yes now a day 1/10 or other scales are replica of each other. not to mention our toy cars. the 1:1 cars are the same. same story. no surprise at all !

true true....i would say Veteq is revolutionary with their suspensions and servo mounting position. Maybe we would see that in our 1/10s.

Veteq is not a product for the mass but MS!! MS designed this car for himself but he didnt get much glory with his own design and now serpent comes up with Veteq 2 in very short period.
