I have a swift 2, the shocks NEED heavier than normal oil ie: 60-70wt, as piston holes are to big.
And the engine isn't much chop (read never stays in tune)
I have raced it once and it went ok, I wouldn't go thinking it would beat CR-1's and SP2 (not with me driving anyway).
Other than that I had a few BIG stacks with it and nothing broke . But when someone turned on there radio the car took off under the fence breaking the wing and mounts.
No matter how fast you are or think you are... Remember you were new to RC once, so help out where you can.
Everyone has to start somewhere.
