The throttle response time is 'delayed' the car seems to 'pause' for a millisecond when you come out of a corner (slower speeds)......this maybe be fine for a large flowing track but small, tight, technical track with lots of hairpins really show up this deficiency.
If you like to hit the brakes before going into a corner..this problem is even more obvious.....
The speed is pretty good...a bit faster than an 8T by my estimates. Runtime is OK around 8-9 minutes from 2000s when you really go for it.......you can only get the 15+ minute runtimes if you go easy....I never drive 'easy'
In general I don't think it is worth the money...thats why mine has been put back in the box!
If you are just bashing around it could be FUN......but the demands of small tracks do really show up its deficencies. My laps times using the BL was slower than using a handwound 11T......as I always like to say....Power is nothing without control...and the control is somewhat lacking!!!!!!!
