I'm curious if Torrence or Ty has mentioned how this car handles? Is it and aggressive car or slower reacting? I know it can be tuned...duhhhh. But every car has certain handling characteristics that lean from one end of the spectrum to the other......

Sure looks aggressive in the hands of Ty, he makes other pros look like they need to get the hell out of the way! Just my opinion!!! I can't wait to sell my Kyosho and it's fast just tired of buying so many parts... That should light a fire! Hehehehe

Speaking of Kyosho. Having had one for a while, and their 2w...rear hexes should work from the Kyosho wheels I would imagine (as that seems to be close to universal), and is there a front hex option that is the same, or are the fronts going to be useless? Will track width/offsets change by doing that? Sorry for the basic question, but I've only had Kyosho in 10th scale buggies so far.

it drives more like an 1/8 scale buggy. you can drive it aggressively.

rears should be fine. for the front the kit includes both large and small hexes. chances are the Kyosho wheel will fit if it is similar to the b44 front wheel. the track width might end up slightly narrower.

Unless the rear axle collar on the HB is narrow like the Kyosho the rear rims will need to be reamed out a bit to fit. So far I haven't found any other car they fit without having to do so. I am talking about Kyosho brand wheels.

Hey Torrance, (I'm sorry if I'm repeating a question)

Just looking around at the different options for battery packs at the moment...

I clearly know and understand that it will fit a shorty, or a saddle...

But could you maybe tell us what the measurement is from the chassis to the topdeck is.

I've got some packs(that aren't roar approved.) That I'm curious to see if they are going to fit.

They measure 69x46x31!!! They're thick little bricks.... 5700mAh (2s3p)

By the looks of the pics it's going to be close. But I think the issue with fitting them in there is going to be the front mount of the rear triangulated tower brace....



Thanks again.
