I and a couple of others in my area felt the same way about the 22. When the grip was high it was hard to beat and when it wasn't you had a fight on your hands trying to keep it between the pipes.

Well said the 22 sucks on loose dirt period!!! THis is why i will be getting an rb6 not getting a 22 and putting velvet's on it because can a sure you that it will still handle like a POS!!!!! Not saying the 22 sucks but if you want a 22 you better have a nice high bight clay track! I hope the RB6's release will be on time not a few month's delayed like the WC's were.

Price doesn't bother me, so I've ordered one. If price bothered me I wouldn't have a RB5 Vega and a RudeBits DB1.

RB5 will prob be sold as will my spare FS2 SP which I haven't touched. So will be left with FS2 SP race car, RudeBits DB1 and RB6.

Kyosho RudeBits DB1 won the 2WD UK national at Silverstone yesterday

The RB5 SP2/WC is still a very good car and its well made so it will hold its value more then others. I have my spare car on there for $250.00 and have been receiving alot of activity.
