Everything new has some flaws but they can all be worked out. Looking forward to getting this. What servo is the best for the car?
I ran VTA with it for a couple of months. No problem with the HPI VTA wheels. They mount right up. My only real problem was the screws holding the bottom of the C cups to the A arms on the front kept coming out. Loosing those screws and bushing was a hassle. Other than that ran fine.
Novak Ballistic 25.5 and GTB2 for motor/esc. Spektrum DX3S TX/SR300 RX. Not sure if I was running one of the Spectrum servos or something out of an HPI or Traxxas car at that point. But it was pretty much your standard run of the mill, middle of the road servo.
It's a good starting car. VTA is a good starting class. Use them to learn with and then as you go up to faster classes invest in better chassis.
