I want to see how far it can go.
Is the layout that got me too, I think this have huge potential

Yes, you are correct, one of the set up during testing, I did limit all the droop setting, it did help, but it still dose it.

The first thing I thought it would give was the drive train, but no, after a whole day running around, no noticeable issues from it on the 4.5T, that's nice.

May I ask where you race, what surface is it?

Cheers

I posted a YT link to my last race. The track is sprayed with sugar water and very tacky.

My mini will traction roll on surfaces like this. Maybe widening your track width might help too. The stock front uses 1As so maybe 1Cs? I'm using 1Bs on the front.

Are your padded mailers gold lined or something? If not, then that sort of postage cost is just a blatent rip off.
thats why: ebay > most private retailers
Ebay will regulate the shipping cost.

do tamiya touring cars still measure up at 185mm wide? or are they 190mm now? looking to get back into tc racing, but tamiya bodies are expensive, and 190mm bodies on a 185mm chassis look terrible!

thank you in advance...

Just get something similar to these wheel hex drives http://www.ebay.com/itm/blue-aluminu...item20b989e1f1

You can get them in different width's and then just use other tc body shells

Cheers
Rob.
