I noticed that after seeing the CAD drawings if the R40...yeah the Mugen design looks dated after seeing these. Oh well once again money spent on extras.

I think it's possibly slightly lower. I guess running the Mugen will determine if I like belted cars. If I do I might just have to get one of the two or both

Thinking about trying one out?

I did notice that the price of the "Pro" version will be much higher than the standard. Tower's price in the standard's is pretty high $299.00 hopfully the Pro won't be too expensive. Have any ideas how much the R40 will cost?

Have you had experience with Rossi Pixy engines or a lowered heatsink for my MT12 )see above photo (- in both the NTC3 and Mugen)? I was considering trying one of those out too.

Except that most belt cars line all the heavy bits up down the centreline unlike the NTC3

I'm thinking of the G4..just because of the way it looks....in all my 70 car collection,touring cars are my favorite..so even as a collectible,I'd buy it..though I'd like to see it in person first..

the hpi?....well,you know I'll get that car..I owe HPI that much for all their support they gave me,plus I busted their hump for 4 years,telling them to build one....


but,I find it hard to believe that any of them will drive like the tc3....

I just don't like the tc3 because its associated,I like the shaft drive concept..its easy to work on,easy to drive,accelerates harder than any belt car..its a system of the future..

Nice work

I swore I would never get a shaft car. But I think I will be giving that OFNA full option a go. Looks nice.

I'm always on my toes

Looks like this car and the R40 are going to get a lot of attention when they are released.

Default G4

well, the thing about tawianese production cars is that their quality is just not as good as the japanese cars (kyosho, mugen, etc)

so if you like quality, think twice about this car


no offences to anyone out there, i am tawianese by the way
i know how they make those cars and it is not as detailed, that is why someitmes their parts have quality issues
