Ready for the track.





Regarding the slipper, I tested it quickly with the original setting suggested in the manual and it was too tight, so I changed it half a turn and its much better.
I might even loosen another half turn once I try it on our outdoor clay track this afternoon.

You know, for the most part I can't stand this cab-forward trend in body style, but I have to say out of all of them, this one ain't so bad

The cab forward design has started to grow on me. I have started to even like it.

Yeah I agree, this one and the Yokomo are by far the best of the uglies

The worst is the Cat K1 and that sworks 1/8th electric...

Have been to the track 3 times now with this car and all i can say is wow.
It feels glued to the track and is so easy to drive, dont feel twitcy at all and turns on a dime.
Did break the front bulkhead but only due to some hard crashes..

Looks great PS71. Does the car feel different at all with the steel gears and did you change front and rear diffs to steel gears?
Thanks, Brian.
