    It is interesting that he was driving it in a parking lot at Traxxas HQ in McKinney, TX.

    WOW!!!!! halfway thru the vid and I just had to point out the minor but major impact features this RC has. Did you see it comes with a 2nd set of body posts and those posts adjusts to fit ALOT of bodies basically making it universal.

    3-Part lexan body to get the real feel/look of the Ford GT

    Plus the battery tray holder. That is very cool how it flips to fit nimh and lipo packs.

    back to the vid lol

    This car looks promising, the scale detail (those brake calibers especially) really adds to the value. The 4tec 2.0 platform itself looks well designed and im glad to hear stock tuned for sensitive steering.

    I think this review vid will ease a lot of minds.

    Another note, The new ultra shock caps could also be beneficial to other traxxas vehicles.

    love the rear led tail lights hopefully in the future Traxxas will release a headlight bucket set for the front so we can have a full set of realistic scale lights.

    The fact that it comes with LED bezels in the back is VERY cool. But, it does not look like there is any accommodation for front lights. I pre-ordered mine yesterday, and will not wait for the lighting kit to add LEDs, they are pretty easy to wire up, and most of my RCs have custom lighting anyway.

    Yes it was, Funny, Peter Vieira used to work for Traxxas.
    My previous sig conflicted with a forum policy.

    mmm I don't know. The sound the Traxxas oba has now sounds like a offroad monster truck and would be odd placed into this car.

    They would have to tweak the sound for sure.

    I am pretty sure they could reprogram it for the appropriate engine sounds. Honestly, I don't know how I am going to get along with TSM, I think OBA on this thing would be a little much. Plus, I can make my own "vroom-vroom-farty" noises.

    Lol. I think that I am going to by one. Seems to be a ok value with the tsm and tqi transmitter.

    Also it would be cool if they made an additional set of drift tires.

    I am really liking this car more than I thought I was going to... I wonder if this might be an actual competitive platform.
    Traxxas please sell kits!
