So far the only fault the car has is the exhaust mount built into the left-front bulkhead. I don't know why the designer chose to incorporate it into the bulkhead much less make it out of plastic. Sounds like a conspiracy to sell more stuff if you ask me! I mounted a metal mount to the top of the upperdeck and had the wire come out and down to the pipe mount. I wonder what the Kyosho drivers were using. It looks much cleaner they way they did it.

My friend Dino has one and it's very very light. See pictures in this thread.
I built one Jeffery and I did not like it. They need to work on quality control. The RRR is much more refined.

I don't know yet Walter. I have a good set up for the FW it's just that at the last race, I was driving the car with a broken right rear arm and it was giving me a handling headache. The RRR is kind of up in the air set up wise. I don't want to chase the set up the whole day. I haven't had a good weekend in a while.

Depends. I believe I'm told that RC Mushroom under declares the value of the package contents and declares it as sample.

Looks like an aluminum exhaust mount mounted below the radio deck from the looks of Adrien's car.
