I have talked to several people with the system, most feel it's as good if not better, speed wise then a normal system, the reaction time is not sluggish at all.
These problems only seem to occur on carpet. If running the spektrum on carpet is the only flaw in the system, I can only think that has somthing to do with static from the carpet. like it has been stated, at the worlds no problems, big fast open asphalt track.
I know people running indoors onroad, no problems, offroad no problems, gas no problems.
I saw todd hodge post that he was going to run the system at the birds, curious if he stuck with it or pulled it out. Losi's early problems may have been a result of there spektrum units not working so well on the carpet.

"I think they are still a little cautious at big events about new technology. If they use something new and have an off week then it must be the equipment."
I know I bought a Spektrum system just for this race. Got there on Wed. tried it in my first practice and the car had a VERY BAD LAG. You turn and then 2ft later the car turns, going down the straight the car just felt very sluggish, like it was hitting a Rev-Limiter. I pulled the system out and went back to crystals and had no more problems like this. I talked to a few Factory drivers about the system, everyone of them ask me what I felt while using it. I explained it to them and they said that was exactly what they felt. none of them offed there opinion first, They all ask what I thought then after that explained that they too felt teh same thing.
So if an "average joe" can feel the lag why would you think it was just a trend for them to pull the system?
I saw one person using the system all weekend and watching the car ans the kid drive you could tell he was having the same problem.
