if your running boosted or mod yes, if your just running 17.5 or 13.5 blinky you dont have to. I run mine without it in 13.5 blinky and have done so for 4 months now and have yet to have any problems at all

That makes setup and tuning a bit easier. There is a new version coming out soon that expands the car to have battery mounting options like the other cars out there.
= never having to set tweek, it's more about just balancing the car and your set.

Any of the current 12th scale cars are good. I can't think of a "bad" one. I do have to say the Speed Merchant cars are slick... getting one with the Old Skool front end and the Team Tamale pod for easier ride heigth adjustment would make for one easy to deal with car.

All new 1/12 cars are good, any one of them could win the world championship with the right setup and one of the best drivers. I have two CRC cars, and when I hit the setup just right they are unbeatable.
I race toy cars for fun. If I need to explain, you'll never understand.
If everything is under control... go faster.

It is obvious and intuitive to the most casual of observers that RC racing is better than golf.

How about Tamiya RM-01?

I just ordered one, going to run it with boosted 17.5t.
