+2 We can add hard anodized ball joints but the draglink is the sloppiest component on the truck. I would purchase this part if it was offered.

I see you're from VA; around here it really depends on where you go. The Track and East Coast Hobbies have a fair amount of topsoil (or whatever mixed in) and usually greens or M4s work there. Bumps'n'Jumps is clay, and the gold or MCs work there.

What do you mean by how does it compare to the Tekno? Are you asking how well do they turn on track? On power? Off power? Steering throw on a car stand? Etc... Please be a little more specific and we can try to answer the question for you.

Uh, just to be clear
A real comparison for the 2.0 will have to wait...
So an answer at this time is...

All we can do is hope that TLR got all the slop worked out on the 2.0 scte. It's simply speculation at this point. But seeing how much effort they put into making a true race caliber scte I would think they got the slop out of it. Guess we will see once some of us get the 2.0 in our hands and get some runtime on them....

Good recommends for 'the track'. I was just there this weekend and my MC ions were aweful there, the softer compounds will work. A softer brocode or codes would be my first choice, my MC codes were ok but I could have easily dropped my lap times an additional second w/ the right tires on.

How could they? The arms, steering knuckles, etc are all the same. Same plastics, same tolerances.

Granted, it may have the hard annodized ball thing-a-ma-jigs but for $25 you can put them on your 1.0

As long as the thing isn't falling apart, slop is fast.
