Interested to know why you would go for a 2017 when the EVO is available? Are the EVO upgrades good value over standard? They sound good. I keep a smidgen of interest in a TF, and would tend to think something like this deserves the aluminium shocks, carbon, CVDs etc which would soon add up to the £80 premium.

The EVO for sure has some excellent upgrades, carbon chassis, big bore shocks, upgraded ball diffs and more. I have two, a shelfer and the recently completed runner build. I'd like a bog standard FRP Top Force in that classic (slightly hideous😂) green colour combo for the shelf to sit next to my EVO shelfer. I'm excited to have the build experience of the Evolutions predecessor, regardless of it's lower spec👍😊

Not yet, but got my eye on an M08 chassis and HPI’s Datsun 510 body.

I decided I would buy a new transmitter as a reward to myself for doing a difficult thing I needed to do. So I've a Noble NB4 incoming.

Nope. I'll try to get the stuff done I already own. The only RC related things I'll buy this year will be bits and parts to replace broken ones and maybe (big maybe) an airbrush if I can't borrow one from a friend to use... If I do get something else RC related this year I'll post it here...  This could turn out to be a very long year :rolleyes:

Just before Christmas I thought of a way to fix the DT-02 steering, and sent it to shapeways to print.  It was supposed to arrive January 2nd - does that count? :) mind you, it looks like UPS lost it - Their last scan of the package was 4 days ago... :angry:
