So we get preferred treatment because we demand less

so what is the verdict on the ta06 , how do you like the gear diffs ft and rear?
anyone want to go back to a ball diff rear spool ft setup? do the gear diffs leak at all for you? does the car feel more balanced than the v2? does it feel quicker acceleration wise, how do your lap times compare to your old chassis?
These are questions we must know the answers too junkie out

Stupid question alert: What's the big deal with this car? It looks really wide, as in scrape the ESC and Servo on every turn wide.

Is it that it is new or does my inexperienced eyes not see what the allure is?

Not bagging on it, just trying to learn.

THe chassis's sides are angled upward like 2wd buggies so you will not have an issue with scraping as much as you may think. Any new car on the market gets its fair share of attention. This car is the TA05 Replacement so a lot of curiosity will be around this car until it is commonly seen on the tracks. Hopefully ill have mine out on Thursday at CAL and do some initial testing.
