Could you elaborate on "responsive" for me ??
As i can't understand how the way the centre shaft is made up can alter the "responsiveness" of the car. As with the triox there is just one shaft and with the R3 it is made up of sections but i cannot find any give or "twist" in it so i would think they would respond very similarly.
1 other point the shorter the sections are, the less "twist" you get under accelaration. So in theory the R3 would have to be more responsive because that centre shaft is shorter and therefore would require a greater inertia to Twist it under accelaration.
I really think there is very little difference in the cars, i'd just lean towards buying the latest version of anything i was going to buy new
