I have been completly out of touch with everything in the last 10 years so I dont now how different the cars are now.
2. My car used to be quite fast when I originally raced it but it developed a problem that caused the steering to constantly twitch. I have now dug out the car and am intending on fixing the issue which I believe is more than likey a new reciever required, please tell me if you have any better ideas. I have tried many different servos.
Just go through your stuff, prepare a car that is ready to race, take it to the track, and see how everything works out!
I think you may be pleasantly surprised at how well your old gear will run, and how quickly your thumbs will re-learn how to drive.
Having said that, in my opinion the Axis is just a shade too old fashioned to compete with the modern cars, and you will be looking very enviously at the performance and ease of use of brushless and LiPo compared to brushed and Nixx. Be prepared to crack open that wallet...
