Toblerone, Yes you are right, that is some Tamiya 416 parts!
crabboy, Over here we run on rubber tires, 5cell, and modified motors, (3,5-4,0..). I tested the car standard with good result. But i thought it was hard to drive, not so good steering not so good cornerspeed. I tested it like this and the car was better, much better cornerspeed and better steering. It was also easier to drive around the track. more reactive. I also think with this "short" wheelbase the car is had better turn in and better rotation. The biggest improvement was the arms, the tamiya arms are not so soft as corallys. they dont flex that much.
XCELL, i like a nice looking car
The car handles well, the biggest improvement is the cornerspeed and the steering, you can have more initial steering in the car!
If there is anything i can help you guys with, please let me know!
