Tell me how well you do at the races with those Upgrades installed on the chassis.

The car handles like it's on rails and has more then enough speed for the average RC enthusiast. I built the car as a project runner. I use other cars for the racing venues.

Hey Cudacharger.
I've read the article. You have a racing chassis. Does it run just as good as the higher-end racers?

My RS4 Sport 3 runs well also. I run the Stock Brushed System(15t motor).

I'll be matching the RS4 Sport 3 against the Tamiya TB Evo 5 (with a 10.5t motor).
-both chassis have the same batteries

Hey Everyone,

New to this forum. Great information posted. I've had my Brushed RS4 Sport 3 for about year, so far so good. The BMW body looked to good to use so I just kept it in the box. Figured I would use one of my older bodies. My biggest issue is pebbles getting stuck in the steering, which gets frustrating very quickly, although I have read a few solutions.

I wanted to post pic of my corolla but i am too new with not enough posts so I will have to wait.

Prep(Sweep) the track before you run the chassis. It'll make the surface better and no-more pebble-rocks getting in the chassis.
