Damn, you weren't kidding about it looking like a FW-05. That just makes getting the pipe more interesting. I wonder why they're choosing this layout. By the looks of it, most suspension parts should fit, no sweat. Now I have to either get another box or reroute the one I have. grrrrr......

At least it has a handle this time....let the 'copycat' flaming commence!

Similar tranny layout, but definitely not a copy of the Kyosho.

True, but remember the shitstorm that came up when the LD3 was released, looking very similar to the NTC3. I understand and still support the LD3 as teh better product and will support this new rig as well. It should be easier to get a hold of parts than a Kyosho, and if the suspension works the same, that will cut the spare parts in 1/2. I only hope it comes standard with 0.8 gearing. Then I won't have to think about the HyperGT4, or whatever the belt drive one is to be called

OK, now I'm confused. The first one looks like the Kyosho (radio gear on left, engine on right). Onetrip's pic has everything like the LD3, but with the Kyosho tranny layout (radio gear on right, engine on left)

Oh yeah, OneTrip, here's a pic of the Kyosho...





see the resemblence?

I was gonna say the same thing I would rather go with the
second so you can have more options on the pipe selection.
eitherway it looks to have the same suspension.

Chris, thanks for "spilling the beans".

With this flipped picture I think the car would drive backwards, not forward, wouldn't it?
