I've been running the X-Ray M18T all winter on a smaller sized 1/10 dirt track, and it's been great. It's certainly a handful (twitchy), but so are all the other cars I race against when most have have li-po and brushless (mamba 6800 dialed way down, 10T pinion). The vendetta ST's seem slightly more stable though, due to being slightly larger and bigger wheels. I did see some improvement after adding the 3racing aluminum shocks, and you definitely need some aftermarket CVD's if running brushless (I got the atomic brand). I would break a couple of parts more than others, the rear tie-rods and the hub carriers (front and rear). I finally upgraded those to aluminum and it's been pretty durable even on a huge triple made for 1/10 cars. It's sad how much you end up spending on these stinking little cars, but it gives me another class to race while I'm waiting for my 4WD heats to come up.
