I agree that this class of car is badly needed in the U.S. , something needs to be done about the state of 1/8 scale racing .The cars have gotten so technical and so fast that only a handful of drivers can extract the performance out of them. They truely have become the Formula One of R/C car racing , but real Formula One has lesser series with slower cars ( GP2 , Formula 3 , Formula Ford etc.) and that's what is needed for 1/8 onroad , a simpler , slower and cheaper class. I have mentioned this to some people and one of the popular rebuttles I have gotten was; its' though to sell something that is slower. Well look at the Traxxas Slash they seem to be selling O.K. !! and they're a hell of a lot slower than my son's Kyosho RB5.
