Anyone who says different, just doesn't understand.
I think R40victim is from a nitro back ground. In his eyes their is only one way. And he is entitled to his opinion.
I myself ran nitro for 4 years (buggy and truggy)
but before that I ran electric for a few years.
I think that everyone can agree to disagree on this subject.
For me I wanted to try and keep my 8ight as light as i can. so the tekno kit with the extra servo and linkage was weight i did not want.
right now i have the mmm2200kv motor I will be getting the 2650 because it is lighter. right now my buggy comes in at 8lbs even race ready.
right now my buggy feels good and can hold a fast tight line.
but it does require a good brake and pinion combo to get it to work.
