Where to play the car?

Indoor track, no. It's a nitro.
Outdoor track, it's too small.

with all the negative opinions, i thought you guys actually drove it. have any of you ever drove a 1/18th nitro car? the fact that the guys who are guessing its a .12 size engine tells me that they have not seen too many engines in the hobby besides the one at their track. there are plenty of engines smaller then a .12 that have been around since the beginning of rc

Wow I am shocked at the negative response! Looks cool as hell to me. We will probably race them in my store. The elect. M18 is way cool, & we have a blast with them.
What is with all the demand for a 1/10 nitro? Aren't there like a thousand or so to choose from? I imagine they will get around to 1/10 nitro soon enough.

I understand your guys' outrage at this but I also applaud Xray for finally developing it. I work at a hobby shop. We have an M18 on the counter. Every other question we get about it is "Is it nitro???" Do you know how many will sell if they market it right? Of course none of you guys are going to buy one and probably 1% of racers will buy one but there are PLENTY of people who will buy it. These are the same people who come in and ask me if a Collari .32 will work well in their Nitro 4Tec and the ones who will buy the PRP XR80 just because it says 80+MPH on the box.

I said a .12 because of the porportion of the motor to the car. You're right though, I've not seen many smaller motors than 12s, so I ASSummed it was a .12. Look at it, the head potrudes through the roof, the filter is hanging out of the back window. Doesn't anyone have an M18 to set a .12 next to and snap a pic of it so we can see? I've seen the M18 plenty of times, and that looks like they stuck a .12 in there...

No way a .12 will fit! I just put one up next to my M18 it would stick way up out of the body, no room for exhaust or clutch or anything.
I have a norvel .074 that would fit though.

Well, a couple of us went back and looked real hard at it, and it does seem too small to be a .12 It's the shot of it with the keyboard and mouse that makes us think it's gotta be smaller than a .12

I guess we'll just have to wait and see...

It's cool in my opinion, even though they should release a 1/10 nitro, or it'd be even cooler if it was a 1/8. But still, I like it.

I think it is great! I put mine on pre-order this morning rite after I saw it. Conversation piece, toy, paper weight, whatever the case I want one. I don't have dilusions of a "new" class to race, it's just like the M18, you just need to own one. As far as engine it is probably a .049 with a large cooling head.
And as an avid sedan racer I think this is just a stepping stone for Hudy/Xray to work on a 1/10th scale platform.

I remember way back when when I first started in this hobby (about 15 years ago) 1/10th electric touring cars were a novelty.

This car is definately a novelty, but it will sell. X-Ray needs to make cars like this to fund research into other cars that we racers want. (12th scale, 10th scale nitro, etc..).
