It's quick, not finished and is a work of art. With tuning, softer rear tires, it should be on par with a tuned Slot It Group C. Very smooth and loads of potential for a PROXY car or club runner.

Highlights:
Fully assembled Aluminum 2 piece chassis floating center pod
3mm axles and wheel bearings
Aluminum motor mount and motor screws included
Brass spacers included
21,000 rpm 200cg of torque 130 can motor
Anodized guide holder
Comes with a wood guide and shallow guide

Challenges:
Firm rear tires lack grip on my plastic track.
Tires must be trued for best running as its bumpy without light truing
Flanged 3mm aluminum wheels ( need to find out where to get tires). Paul G to the red phone please
Unique size hex screws in between Slot It and NSR
Does not include adjustments for front ride height
Raised hex screws that protrude underneath the chassis

I received my two RTR, and both cars run well on my wood track. I didn’t have any problems with the rear tires. Plenty of grip, smooth, with some gear noise right out of the box. Added some lube to the gears and that took care of the noise. I recommend the cars.

Should have them in stock today. Some are already sold out. Hopefully we will be getting more in soon.

Not surprised these are sold out. I even wrote a mild review, :dance:

They've made the same (maybe mistake?) that Spirit did with not joining the rear left axle tower and the motor holder. With the Spirit cars with the same long can motor you got lots of hop on high grip tracks that was sort of fixed when Spirit changed their design (with the last few releases) and made the modification to stiffen up the chassis.
I'm wondering if this car will have the same hop or has the pod been made sufficiently stiff that it won't have this issue.

The drive train sits on a very substantial chunk of aluminum: I really do not see any similarity with what was a very soft and flimsy plastic base for the Spirit cars. Ergo: I would be pretty surprised if there is significant flex in that critical part of the chassis. Actually, in looking at the photographs again, given the thickness and the amount of metal in the motor-to-axle area, I would be VERY surprised if there is meaningful flex in that area.

But time will tell.....

Dave, the pod is fairly thick aluminum which is stiff and the motor mount is also a solid piece of aluminum as well. There appears to be very little room for flex

I think the mistake they are making is that they are using 3 mm axle. It didn't work well for Scalextric. At least with a bearing holder you should be able to change them out if you like.

Disappointed to see no front axle adjustment. Probably won't stop me from giving one a try at some point.

My mistake... details hidden from me in plain sight!

Not for me, but excellent review. Thanks for taking the time sir.

I would think you could adjust the ride height with very thin washers under the hubs.
