I read the RC Mini review, they didn't have too many kind words for the Switch but I think it could be a good little racer with some R & D time on the racer's end. I want to get my girlfriend one for her birthday, she loves the Fiat and wants to try mini-class racing occasinally (our local club races MO2,MO3,MO4,MO5, HPI cup racers) together with really good results. I think with a silver can motor this car will run with the M's.
Anyone who bought an early-run Cup Racer knows they were a total POS until you learn the tricks. The one I race was bought new in kit form by a friend, it was his first kit build and he put it together perfectly, but the drivetrain was binding. He thought he put it together wrong. Turns out the diff case halves bind the diff pinion & ring if tightened down all the way. Solution? run them 1/4 turn loose, no problems. Crappy, inconsistent handling? ditch the kit tires! He got frustrated and bought a TC instead and sold me the Cup Racer, which I struggled with just like he did (for a few weeks). With better tires and non-binding drivetrain, the car is taking on the world and can run faster laps than a 25.5 Trans Am car (granted my cup racer has a no-boost, no timing ESC & 21.5)
For the price I want to give it a go. We all know that RTR means Rebuild-Then-Run. I'd like to give this little guy a fair chance.
