Another cool feature is the intergrated middle bearing block into the left bulkhead the Germans are always thinking.

The car looks and impressive features, I have two ideas that would improve the pack when it comes to sale

1 to include a book setup
2 to include the spare mount part for the starter box.

I think the screw was tightned too much, i'd expect that to be fixed in the final version. Also, first upgrade part there?


Btw, do you need a low profile servo for this car?

I notice that the engine mount is not fully sitting on chassis, it sitting via four 1mm washer thru chassis mount screw (physically these washer were one piece with engine mount), I think it can let the chassis have more tweak.

You mean the Dutch are always thinking. Germans build good 1:1 cars.

This car is just the prototype and not the production model as stated in the RedRC article. Also the brace looked like it broke because they used a dome headed screw instead of a counter head screw.

Last I knew Salven was German.As for the starter box brackets it would be nice like the older cars came with them, but the reason they stopped making the brackets were because the serpent starter box changed and has the universal mount. Also people use other brands of boxes that the brackets don't fit.
