Only one chassis length? Ok, that means my ultra adjustable design is still worth investing in... and the part that looks like the MiX Design is not actually that.

It also looks a bit on the WIDE side... like the Clear Mini-X was...

I tested an mr-015 nissan 350z body. It's in or will be in one of the pics. The body was too narrow. Clearly it'll need to be an mr-02 width body.

Anyone in the Chicagoland area care to test drive one of these? The vendor was kind enough to lend us a sample to try out in our races. First thing I'll be doing is attempting to mount a standard PN 70t and see what I can put down on an HFAY layout.

I'm not but I'd LOVE to test drive.

The car looks interesting, like they copied the architecture right off the Xray M18 and changed some bits here and there due to space constraints.

The motor doesn't look a whole lot bigger than the 130, does it have the same bolt pattern? It's probably a 180, which means a 130 like the PN 70t will fit and will be more than sufficient to power the car.

Looks solid. WHat kind of diffs does this baby have front/rear?

Also, if the baseplate is swappable for wheelbase changes, I can see slots designed for Nimh 4-cell use, shouldn't be too difficult, right?

I haven't opened it up yet but I can tell in the spare parts bags, they had balls the size that would go in a ball diff. So I'll take one apart to get a pic of the diffs.

Though a different chassis could be made for 4 aaa, that isn't in their plans. I hope to meet with them next week as I think it is important to run this with a typical 4 aaa setup. THey are pushing better performance/speed with the lipos, which is true, but it would absolutly require another class to race it.

If it's a 180 class motor, I'm sure it'll fit a brushless 2030 motor (like EzRun combo)....

With a 18A Esc and a 5800kv motor, it'll be a top fuel dragster... (I tried this combo in my 1/18 Micro-RS4, and it reaches something like 60km/h).

wow that chassis is really great. i like where there put the servo. i didn't know a servo like that exist. with this it will solve the servo problem on mini z. i sure kyosho will not stay quite about this. that chassis will give a threat to MA-010.
i wonder how it feel when drifting with that chassis.
