It is better than before but not perfect. More to come
I raced my production Sidewinder tonight in 2wd mod buggy with the 5700 Mamba motor and it was flawless. Zero cogging, hesitations, or anything else and yes I did the roll backwards down a ramp (not that I every have this happen) but it smoked the tires off and started to pull a wheelie with the setup I had.
Car was super smooth and if I wouldn't know any better I would of thought I had a brushed mod motor in. Couldn't be happier with this system and for 149.99 it is all the more impressive.
