I'd seen that earlier on Facebook, actually looks quite interesting. Nitro boys won't be happy, gasoline's taking over their smaller cars! :P

Saw these at the HPI stand at Toyfair in Melbourne yesterday, they look awesome they only had pre-production units fitted into cars, no running examples. Rumour has it they will have a larger cc engine soon after first release! Also talked to another engine manufacturer who are also looking at producing this size engine :D
