Gas trucks? If it's 1/10 gas a mod 4wd can turn much faster lap times with similar drivers. If it's truggy or 1/8 it depends on the track. On a blown out track probably not, but on a smoother track, yeah. They clocked my XXX-4 at 34 mph on the back straight 4 or 5 weeks ago. That was with a 10 x 1 on 4200's, and I still had throttle left when I had to brake. It's the same speed the top 2 truggies were getting clocked at. Point is, unless the track's huge the higher top speed of a truggy won't matter. on a blown track the long travel, width, etc., will. I've been surprised how durable my XXX-4 is after hearing people gripe. I beat the dog out of it at that race in the first round and a half 'cause I ran with no practice on a new layout, and nothing happened. The only breakage was in the 3rd of the triple A's when I lawn darted the table top. I would have broken any car with that hit, LOL. And yeah, you can just cut the wing for shock clearance. That's what I did. The body for the G+ is the Aurora body, Invader was the old style.
