Car looks very good. A combination of all of the latest trends in nitro TC. It is not really groundbreaking, but looks to be a solid vehicle.

I'm a little surprised that HPI and Mugen left out the floating rear body mount...

According to Mugen they tested one and they decided that with touring car bodies the traditional mounting style works better. Not sure about more detail than that.

Interesting - it's hard to imagine how the floating rear mount would hurt, given the large, high-downforce wings in use even with touring car bodies...

Damn...you did it to me again Looks like I want try yet another car.

Why oh why do things have to change or get better...I can't resist buying new stuff.

I now have a NTC3 plus essentials and a MTX3 w/hop-ups (not even run yet) and now I want another. I fell into the trap of a considerably hopped-up RS4-3 but I still can't resist this car AND the new G40.

Time to go to bed and earn more $$$ in th AM to support my addiction.

Thanks and no thanks for the info fastharry.

BTW was just in Maui and Kauai this past January...just had to mention it since you had talked about Hawaii briefly.

Later,
Puma

not to mention all the Mugen owners as they finally admit that getting parts IS a big part of RC..
