Go check out the TA05 thread if your interested. There's a ton of information there for you. People are loving the car. I run 4300 brushless and rubber tire on carpet. The thing works very well. The only hopups I bought were the TRF shocks and cvds for it. All the aluminum stuff is overrated. Any car will work very well once you understand some chassis and geometry. Practice is most important. Understand and believe in your ability.
