Stay tuned for more info on 1/10th racing. We are talking to other manufacturers to see if we can all get on the same page together and bring back 1/10th pan.
why dont you just put the lipo in it and understand you'll never get that power down lol. lets look forward to lipo and 17.5 or 21.5 or whatever the 7.4 equiv of 19T ends up being. anymore than that and we all know what happens when you hit one bump. i think the key is to think ahead of the curve.

but in any case, get some video of that thing!

well started the build, im liking the geometry in this kit already, compared to m l4 the weight seems tighter, and more centered, can hardly wait, taking my time tho, 2 hours on front end alone, building this baby right!

Hey guys i am looking for some more steering from my car in 19t class. I am currently using kit setup with grey rear and purple fronts. I would like to try and tune the car without changing the tire compounds if possible because i have 5 sets of each Anyway what would you suggest. It feels like the front tires are scrubbing going through the corners and reducing corner speed because i have to knock up my overall steering. Ps it is using jack the gripper

Well it seems that you already know that a different front tire would very likely solve the issues. But if thats not an option then tell us where you have the batterys placed, what springs, etc. I'm sure someone can get you headed in the right direction.
