Has anyone actually run one?

I know they look junky, and are very light. But maybe they work??

Seen it, watched it run.

The video does not look bad. It would be interesting to see a couple of these at comps, maybe light Supers is the next new thing.

Saw them, drove them, was very very dissapointed. They did have an aluminum prototype that looked decent but, it will never see the light of day.

I'm supposed to be testing a new prototype Red Cat crawler sometime in the near future.

I'll give everyone a full run down when it arrives.

Yes, the 1/10 MOA with torque twist

How random does your geometry have to be to get such ridiculous axle swing... Another low quality, terribly designed way for ebay brands to ride the wave. These things do nothing for the hobby, they merely drive people out by making them think they are a good representation of the rest.
