Yeah the crawler is the one i am most interested in but I'm afraid the 1/14's are a little closer to my budget.

I've gotta say too, I'm not an on-road guy or a fan of Nissans but that black GTR kind of looks amazing. The body looks as scale as I have seen in an RTR of any sort. This brand kind of has me excited and quite possibly reaching for my wallet.

Twin hammer

Yeah the hammer looks pretty cool. And ditto on the scale of the whole line in general! That was the first thing that I thought was how close to a real street rod they looked. I wish there was more info out on the rtr set or arr. wonder what the tx is? Hopefully they didn't follow HPI on that one! It still leaves me asking one question.... Why can't anyone put a good body latching system together that doesn't require the ole posts and clips? It jumps right out at you after you see it on that Camaro hood for the first time.

Also would love to see some close ups of the mechanics!

Yeah but they already have those four holes in that sweet looking scale body! What a shame. You'd think that would've made the "redesign" list at some manufacturer. Maybe ill do that next week right after i finish perfecting my solar powered flashlight design.

I think I'm waiting to see if they do an ARTR version of the twin hammers. It seems to be the one that people are interested in the most from what I've seen here and on rctech.

Hi guys, I'm usually a plane guy but I love Horizon and some of these new cars caught my eye. I'm on a budget so the Kemora looks good. However, the on road cars look good too and are the same price, even at a bigger size. They aren't brushless thought an I'm wondering about performance on non-asphalt surfaces.

Anyway, this looks like a good brand and I can't wait for the first videos and reviews.

Tom

Ps. One of the mind attractions that cars have for me, as a plane guy, is that you don't have to wait for dead-calm conditions to use them!

I know what you mean. Also the option to drive around near your house instead of having to take a trip to a suitable airfield/strip, makes cars a low hassle passtime. But flying and boats are also cool.
