JQ IS BACK! Welcome to THE Car - Black Edition   This kit now includes the Black Edition eCar conversion kit (2in1)

The Black Edition comes equipped with a longer, thinner 3mm chassis. The longer chassis, with a more forward weight bias improved the handling in bumps and interestingly through corners too. The thinner chassis just makes the car more forgiving, specially on difficult inconsistent tracks. The rear brace is now long, and machined out of aluminum. The longer brace stops the thinner chassis from flexing too much.

Because they raised the diffs by inserting a carbon plate between the gearbox and the chassis, they had to make updated towers and arm holders, in order to maintain the same geometry, and for the net effect to be a higher diff. The arm holders essentially produce identical geometry to the WE LV. However the towers are different. It is now possible to stand the shocks up more than before. Also the front link now has one lower hole.

There is also an updated body, a more modern and universally liked design. A beautiful car is faster! JQ designed and produced the body in collaboration with Bittydesign, the excellent Italian company, who also arrange Bittydesign Contest races around the world.

JQRacing "THE Car" 1/8 Off-Road Nitro Buggy Kit (Black Edition)
Well balanced, light, improved performance and a super easy to set up buggy!

Aside for the elegant look, JQ really took the design one step further:
from the CNC hubs included, to the new braces, shock towers, chassi length,
plus all the small details that makes this kit a really competitive racing buggy!

so far is the Best JQracing buggy

Great kit. Comes with the nitro buggy and the electric buggy conversion kit. And a lot of the option parts already included.

The only negative I have so far is that the steering post that the steering linkage connects to must be sanded down or cut quite a bit to clear the front diff outdrive.

Other than that, super happy with this kit.

Excellent machine. Handles really good and very easy to drive yet capable of high performance competition.
I do own other well known brands so I have a reference to compare it to and this car's right up there with any of them.
