New Corally RDX on the way?

Corally RDX

Our Swiss friends over at RCWorld.ch have this nice piece of reporting about the all new Corally RDX chassis. Seen on the GM Racing site is the above picture highlighting their GM brushless motor on Marc Fischer’s car which inadvertently displays the prototype chassis from the Dutch manufacturer. A picture that no one else at the Team Orion Speed Weekend was able to get, due to obvious secrecy reasons.

Update: RaceRC.dk, also managed to bag a picture of a prototype RDX.
