Default Team Magic "Shock" 1/8th On Road. Anyone seen one of these....???

Hi Guys,

I'm new to this site, and just wanted to know if anyone had seen or know's anything about this kit. Looks very well built, and note the inboard front shock. I seem to remember about seven years ago, they used a similar set up on an FG kit, but I'm damned if I can remember who actually produced it.

http://www.gmmodels.co.uk/acatalog/S...m_Car_Kit.html

Really does look well put together, but know nothing about it.

Let me know your comment on this "Shock" as I'm new to 1/8th and am looking to buy a new car to get me started.

Previously only ran 1/10 touring cars (Very Old Kyosho), so need bringing up to speed, particularly on 1/8th kits and which is proving to be best at the moment.

Cossie.. I don't know of anyone running the TM 1/8 scale car here in the states... The car looks track ready... You might want to start a new thread here on the Nitro forum asking about the car... Good Luck...

that car looks like a carbon copy of the GS Sonic 1/8th scale that came out a few years ago.

The car is basically a revised/revived GS Sonic. Since GS dropped out of the market, I assume that they sold the rights to Team Magic to market the car but had to change the name.
