It looked like to me that the MM car was pretty loose out there in San Diego...sliding all over the place. Hartson was driving it ever so gingerly too.

I thought so too, but was unsure if they used the right tire

agreed, and I only saw it get loose once. like he said the mm will be a advantage on most surfaces. eventually people will get over the high grip only thing.

Whether it was Hartson, Waldron, you or me driving it...it was sliding all over the place. Maybe it had those blue rear and orange front barcodes on it still, I don't know. I wish that car had the molded chassis option for looser conditions, and the aluminum for high bite conditions.

For all we know there's more flex in the alloy chassis than the molded chassis on the RM car. The material doesn't determine that, the design does. Maybe there's a tuning option by removing/adding screws to the molded sides?

Time will tell I guess...aluminum chassis's with side rails bolted to to them should be pretty stiff as far as flex goes. We will ALL know a lot more in a couple of months though.

they are running the spec tire for at the reedy race in those videos, so it might not be 100% the best tire combo for the track... if you watch the RM video you see a MM car pass and pull away from the RC painted rm car too.

I thought maybe the car action guy was driving the rm and maybe kody the mm in that part. That would also explain how the rm got its doors blown off, lol
