For that price, it must have gold or titanium in its mix!

Sorry to say this Chris but your driving is really not a true representation of the general public. Your a pro driver, most are not. Most of us are mere mortals compared to you and your driving. So i`m sorry to say this, but what you had just posted simply doesn`t represent the majority of us.I have been racing for just over 4 years and i think i`m pretty good at it, but not once have i ever had a hub or a steering knuckle last more than a year or forever.
Bottom line is car looks amazing, but car and parts looks really expensive.
Even more so than the X-ray.

It's a very nice car if I was looking for a new car I would have gotten one. Price or no price and it works well

Hi guys,

Just a question, i am actually running with a Serpent 733 in France, and i am very interesting in the Capricorn.

Can you tell me about the advantages of the car?
Is it easy to find setups? how about the quality of plastics and aluminium?....

1. the weight
2. the acceleration
3. the response
4. the look
5. the box contend

The durability of the plastics is just outstanding, don't worry about that.
Same goes for the alloy parts...no failure until now.

In deed it's never easy to find a perfect setup as there will always be somebody kicking your a.. with faster laptimes until you are not Toso :-)
But if you know how to set up a car to your driving and if you can analyze what your car does on the track, the LAB C-01 is not harder to set up than any other car on the market. It always depends on you
You just have to keep one thing in mind...to work with small set-up changes.
As written somewhere above...this car is ultra responsive due to it's stiff layout with alloy and hard composite parts.
Capricorn has brought softer suspension parts to ease setup work and improve low bite traction too.

Hope this helps...
