Yup no doubt it would have been in the main. After driving it for a few weeks I have no doubts its by far the best car on medium grip or more.

Cause they were busy winning the European championships? handily I might add? Dependable ball diffs for US style tracks and this car will be unstoppable.

How do you like the Trackstar stuff? Not really into switching over from Orion, but seems to be a good back up system.

EOS was a different weekend and Josh Wheeler didnt go run EOS . As a matter of fact , guys that ran EOS (Joern Neumann for example) made it here to run the cactus.

I feel you there.Maybe they just didn't think it was worth the trouble because basically it is the Ryan Ryan show in the USA. How does removing the front swaybar effect handling on this thing? Running box stock setup. What would I expect from taking it off?

I can only compare it to my HWv3.1. I was really surprised the Trackstar esc was just as smooth and ran fairly cool (120 after 8min). The motor had a little more low end power then my Mach 2 8.5 but it was very close. As long as it holds up I have no problem running this stuff. It performed flawlessly.

A lot of tail happy ... It will steer more and the rear will slide more.

Full size swervo moved back for better balance, not forward. The pt is there too. A telemetry rx also fits in the same spot. Just takes a little extra time. The soldering is more important. Just ribbin ya a bit too. Your car looks excellent overall.

Good to know and the price is definitely right. Keep me updated if you have any problems. I could buy 4 of these speedos for the price of one Orion, LRP, RSX. etc. I have a HW V3.1 in my Xray right now.

Making me rethink my wiring strategy a bit. I am using the little bracket to run my motor wires under the top brace. Kinds pinched in there a bit.
