Spent all that time modeling tread but no wheels? Lol. I'm interested in what software they use.

This looks amazing like all Cappo stuff. But I'm assuming it will be way too expensive. If I buy something expensive I still want to beat on it.

Interesting, but like their jeep, will probably be silly expensive.

Just watched the RC Sparks video and aesthetically it is killer! Looks great and is super detailed, but I just CAN'T see it holding up to any sort of regular (ab)use...

i love the axles overall design with the pinion set on top like the txt/and rock force more companys should adopt this style but the only thing about the sterring is they should have gone with high steer knuckles and mounter the steering ram up alot higher just my two cents

Not a fan, but I saw RC Sparks' new video last night:

https://youtu.be/BgEDKD_AI9s

It's good to see some running footage, would like to see how it handles more typical and harsher rock racing terrain.

He mentioned in the video it was about $900. Not sure if that's all electronics etc.

Steering looks very realistic but seems to be slow and week. Not sure what servo he has in there or if that's a factor of the cable system.
And those tires are terrible.

I think it looks great tho!

Saw the RCSparks video and have to say I love the looks even though it is Red. Yup that's it.

Applaud the new steering system but give it about 4 trips before the cables or attachments give up. It is terribly slow and doesn't seem to provide to much feedback.

The tires? Wow just Wow. The sound alone struggling for grip would make me burn the forest down around it.

The Drivers aka Mini Me. Looks like 2yo scale wise drivers.

Half or a third of usual Capo price?
Mmmmm...

Those tyres seem terrible. They might need breaking in though.
