She's done! As others already mentioned, everything went together really nice, similar to NT1 build. Very nice kit!

It's not just you. Xray guys talk about trying to beat the Serpents and Mugens, Capricorn guys talk about trying to beat the Serpents, Mugens and Xrays, Shepherd guys talking about trying to beat their old designer at Mugen, on and on and on. Collari and Kyosho has to be beat before you can worry about them

Let's just hope someone does it. He's great but I'm tired of him winning it every year.

no offense, but i can say as i had one, the worlds will be won by a P.O.S. KyoshoM3 driven by none other than Mr. Collari? did we forget the machine? Or is he not attending? and he uses a 2 stick ol' school radio, like a slap in the face!!!

today i have made my first roll out with the rx8 and my first roll out in the 1:8 class, too.
i have driven before 4 years the 1:10 200mm class and after 2 liters of nitro, i donīt understand, why i havenīt changed before to this class.

ok, i still have to improve my driving style, because itīs diffrent than the 1:10 class, but after every fuelstop itīs getting better.

the car feels really great. just started with the basic setup, as i have break in an engine today, only next time i will start with setup the car. but really, the car gives you a great feeling and shows a big potential.

Looks like a Mugen (not a bad thing). I'm very susprised they did'nt drop the tank in from above, thats one thing I did'nt like about my MRX4X.

not to speculate, but ive been hearing swauger has been having"clutch" problems at the worlds, if first batch kits do have a problem, will rc america/xray send out replacements for free? never had ANY quality control issiues with a xray before, so i dont know how they are on this subject. thanks
