Quick question:

And yes I know that probably the answer is somewhere here, but just can read thru many pages and opted for the lazy way.....

I getting one of these sweet trucks tomorrow, and wanted to know what brushless systems are working the best in them, I'm a fan of Castle, but was told by a fellow racer that the seem to be overheating in the TT's, can anyone confirm-deny or recomend a system, I'm a racer not a basher, so and my home track is not the biggest so i don't really need 9000kv

Nice vid! The truck looks a little nose heavy like the Hyper10, does it feel like it wants to nose down without being on throttle? Helps on the down siding granted you time it perfect, you had it pretty dialed.

Moving the battery tray back 1/2-3/4" does wonders for this problem. On some jumps depending on the face and how much throttle I'm giving I sometimes even have to give slight tap on the brake but not real often. Its pretty tough on diffs to have to keep full throttle on just to land your jumps so might as well displace the weight correctly.

Looks like it has some good attitude in the air, he was able to nose down a bit then stop it (didn't keep nosing). Very cool truck for sure, I've been doing everything I can trying to keep my CC in my wallet. Thankfully everyone sold out lol. My wife will crap a cake if I buy another RC, already bought two this month.
