Default Hobbyking is the savior of modding

http://youtu.be/GTYU05o1E7k


Hobbyking knows what's up. ****ing awesome. I don't even want the new xmods anymore....
I can't contain myself right now, and knowing Hobbyking it will be less than 50$


Wow I don't even know what to say. Can't wait till its out

That looks pretty cool. I might have to give this a try, looks like it should be fun to drive. Interested in seeing what other bodies will be offered.

The dimensions of it are very close to mini z bodies. I plan on getting some lexan mini z bodies when I get mine ( already decided I'm getting it )

Yeah in watching that video again, he does mention that the length of the chassis can be adjusted which is nice. I might look into picking up one of these as well because I've pretty much decided that I won't be getting the new xmods. It looks to be pretty tunable and I like the chassis layout

According to a rep from Hobbyking it's going to be less than 50$ and some of the brushless motors they already have in stock will be drop in upgrades

Cheezman found this:

http://www.egrracing.com/shop/index....oducts_id=5599

Appears to be the same chassis, branded under Mini-Q (which is Turnigy, according to a little Google-Fu).

It looks like Hobbyking ordered a few, upgraded the shell, servo, and battery to make it (hopefully) better.

There is some promise to Hobbyking parts, and depending on the price, I'll probably pick one up.

Cheers,
Kyle

That thing looks very similar to the new warrior mini that looks like the Hobbyking car...... They might all be made in the same plant with different electronics... But who knows

The hobbyking one should be coming soon. Usually their new products come about a week after the video. When they come out this is what im ordering.

From Hobbyking:
Mini-Q Chassis Price:35-70(estimate0
Flysky Fsgt3b transmitter Price: 33

From ebay
Lexan skyline/evo8/370z body Price: 10
Pn 50tbb price: 20

Then i have a solid racer to replace my zmod (hopefully)

Not sure on the motor, but that is awesome news with the mini-q. Definitely post pics and a review once you get it. I'd be a lot more interested in it if mini-z bodies and wheels fit. I'm assuming the body posts will be removable then?

Who's investing in these? Does this mean you guys are inclined to try using lexan bodies at 1:28 scale?

I have a plastic fabrication workshop where I can make lexan bodies and master molds for them. Let me know what cars I might be able to help you guys out with
