I'm looking for feedback on motor cooling fans. I'm going to be mounting one to my son's buggy. If you have an opinion on the different brands that are out there PLEASE PM ME.

It's pretty bent.. It took a hell of a hit

Has everyone running these high end servos ditched the servo saver in favor of a standard metal horn?

A few guys have gone to the Kyosho MP9 standoffs. I'm told they are stronger than the stock units.

The last time I raced a car was 2wd buggy back in 1991. This is the first car I've bought since my RC-10 gold tub and I have to say Im please with my experiences so far. It's been enjoyable. Remembering how to setup a car has been the most challenging part of my re-entry back into the hobby.

Default D413 question

What are the car's natural tendencies? Is it a turn and burn car, or a hug the pipe kind of car? We have a HD driver at our track and he dominates, but I've been away for a while, and haven't seen him drive it.
