Default Project RC18B with (HB-D4 chassis Layout)

Anyone interest in 1/18 Buddy? I am planning to make a chassis for RC18B; But the motor, batteries and remote system layout will be same as HB-D4! I am asking a workshop for the price to make the chassis for me, but the min order is 300 pieces! Do anyone interested in that kind of chassis?

It would be interesting to see, but if i am right in thinking the Blaze is mainly the racers choice compared to the rc18 now as it has better handling, so it may be worth taking look at the blaze for some ideas!

FTX Blaze?!?!?!?! That is an exact copy of a Duratrax Vendetta!
Lots of cf and graphite hop-ups on Tower, and much cheaper to buy.
Aluminum hop-ups too. Also comes in an St version with better motor, wider arms and a new body W/ bigger wheels/tires.
Car:

This should be alot better than 110 pounds. ($200) The Vendetta in pounds is probably about 85.

Duratrax, LRP, Yokomo and FTX all purchased the right to produce 'this design' in their own regions.

Duratrax - USA
LRP - Europe (ex UK)
Yokomo - Japan
FTX - UK

none of the above companies copied each other at all.
