And the servo mount bracket design makes no sense. Its so low and will definitely scrape the screw on high roll turns.
Its ultra narrow chassis oddly enough does not really flex much. However, what I am extremely impressed with is its precise parts fitment. Everything feels very tight yet free...
Don't know to try this kit or sell it unused as I am not too impressed with its design.
No worry about the servo mount screw. It will not touch the ground to cause any issue when concerning. I thought the same when building this car.
For the flex, i think this car is designed for modified motor. They have just released the flex chassis aiming for stock racers.
I measured the weight of this car in four corners. Very precious in the weight distribution It is prefect front and rear 50/50. Very small different on L and R. I think we all use different electronics.
Yes, I agree the build quality is very good this car. No exceed play and still smooth, no shim needed. Plastic is high grade. I have no one part that needs replace or broken so far. I have T3 2012, 411, BD5 and TC 6.1. The worst build quality is TC6.1 then 411 then BD5 and the best is T3. This car has T3 build quality level. And their gear diff is so smooth and light weight so far no gear strapping I run 4.5T for over 100packs batteries.
For the performance of what I own:
T3 is the slowest. T3 if you want to make this car turn faster the rear end is not staple. Check it on the TITC 2012 video, Meen's car spinning many times even he used special design chassis. Really something wrong on this car on the design.
After the T3 2012 experience, I changed to 411
411 is runs faster then T3 while able to keep the rear end tight but 411 front is too wide and making the steering reacting is too slow.
then I changed to BD5
BD5 is very good in performance, car is willing to turn and turns fast while keeping the rear staple. This is one best car. Only the down side is the parts are expensive.
then brought tc6.1 for fun ( i didn't expect this car can be as good as bd5)
I was surprised TC 6.1 is at that good performance. Car turns fast and following your steering input. When you overshoot turns then u turning more on the steering wheel. The car just spin/slide a little to back to the right direction while all in controllable.The best performance/money can buy but the down side is the build quality is bad. So much play here and there.. Parts not strong enough. It looks strong only not strong as others. Also, I hate the camber link hooking on the shock tower.
then i got R10
While building this car, already notice this has T3 level of build quality. In performance, car runs as good as bd5 and has a little more turn in then bd5 while rear end is keeping staple. The down side is the body holder shims are easy to lose so I change to Xray for this part.
cyanyde, Run it and tell us what you think.
