Used to run reedy 13 or 14 turn motors, and never had to baby my cars like I need to with this. Years later I ran 2wd nitro rc10GT.

I'm going to stiffen the front, move the battery back, and add some weight and see what happens.

I'm running two motors. 17.5 and 7.5.
I'll second the possible mechanical issue, I have only run narrow rear and always have rear bite unless my tires are completely wrong for the track.

Best place to start is kit setup, 37 oil front, 32 back.

^ this. Also shorty is the way to go bang in the middle or a little in the rear if you are running red rear springs.

If your coming from the rb5, you can try out the full packs, they tame down the car a tad and for me worked better with stock red rear springs.

I also found this on the Takashima Design fb page.

It's an X-Gear body. Probably hard to get outside JDM.

Thanks. I guess they changed the compound for clay around and that is why no one has them. So chances are if you do its the first batch which is not really good. Thanks though.
