Will this be an upgrade part for the ARC 2015?

I'm not sure what you mean by an upgrade part. The ARC steering system is extremely good now, not sure how this would be an upgrade. An alternative I guess, if you're in to that kind of thing, but if it fits it will change a ton of the characteristics. I just can't see the servo mount being the same.

Well ARC makes this for Capricorn RC, and they are the same car the Cap just has red aluminum parts. everything should line up.

I personally love the arc. Ive driven xray, yok, associated, and tamiya. I was planning on getting the yok bd7, but the 2015 wasnt out yet. The only reason i got it is because at the time i was looking to get a car, this was the only 2015 version. It was suppose to be a temporary car, but its a keeper. This car is easy to drive, very smooth feel to it, and very stable. When people say easy to drive, its usually because it doesnt have good steering, but this thing steers great. Also very durable, havnt broken a part. Get this car you wont regret it.

I have run Tamiya Xray associated awesomatix and the latest was 2 yokomo 2015 BD7'S. This are is durable and very easy to drive fast. At a track close to me I ran a fast lap in stock with the yokomo of a 8.8 and that was driving hard. I went out the first day of running the ARC and did 8.6 and averaged 8.9 for my top 20 laps and it was easier to do it. I heard it best described as "it drives like a Cadillac and performs like a Ferrari ". I'm very happy with my switch

I also went through about 4 cars before ending up with the ARC. I think the type of plastic used contributes to the "Cadillac" like feeling, but just enough flex to keep it responsive. It is an easy car to drive, but still can maintain corner speed. This also keeps the car strong, and I've done some mean crashes, but my parts all survived. Don't think I'll be needing that spare c-hub anytime soon(but just keep one anyway). The car is more than capable against anything on the market imo. I was a tamiya guy before too, but as soon as I let the blue go, the ARC was money

thanks for responses! Is the 2015 r10 box setup good for carpet? Do you use arc springs or yokomo springs like a lot of other cars?

Springs will be personal preference. I personally like the ARC springs but others may like the yoke springs. I also keep a set of short shocks and a full spectrum of Reflex Racing short springs in my gear bag.

I don't like Donny's setup at all. That's because he keeps beating me and my Xrays with it! >_<

I ran yok springs for my first time with the car on carpet and it worked good. Then I tried ride rc yellow and white short springs and they worked very very good on carpet.

ARC springs are just as good as any. Add the ATS option in your setup for more tuning options. I have got my cars working very well on low traction asphalt tracks. Cant wait for the supreme traction of next summer.

I have been hearing rumors of some temp carpet tracks coming available this winter. I think I will order that alum chassis just in case.
