Does the STR rear suspension make a lot of difference? Thanks.

i've never seen one. i know all the abc option parts are silver, blue would look slick though.

i recently added their alloy hexes and the "evo" bumper. but the bumper doesn't fit under a cooper style body so i'm not going to use it.

i'm very happy with this car, very fast right out of the box. it's the fastest 4wd mini at our track by far. it's so easy to drive, a pure joy.
Got to try one out recently, was pretty much straight out of the box... really surprised by how well it got around the track. Slick little car for the money.

Thanks for the input.

Side note, has anyone had any luck contacting anyone @ ABC? I've emailed them twice now with no response.

Hi Kevin we got your email and we are going through your site, nice write up and build reviews, about the genetic , we recommend 540 type motor or a 21.5bl system to balance the scale speed and looks. Although the fastest motor we have popped in the chassis is 4.5 and is still controllable, but its crazy scary fast for the size. , will reply to your email about RCsoup.com

Hey guys, putting together my new to me abc genetic and was wondering what lipos you guys are using? It looks like the hardpacks I have currently don't fit (the stock chassic) but I do have an older SMC 5000 2s 20c lipo that does fit.

Look forward to tinkering with my new ride!
