In Modified, I qualified 2nd and finished second behind National Champion Chris Adams at his home track.

This was only the second time for myself as well as the Gizmo on the new black carpet. I had been up to Dallas 2 weeks before for a very brief testing session before this event. I had never had an extended period of time on black carpet with a sedan before, so I think the results were truly impressive considering the circumstances. The car had the pace to hang with national champions all weekend long, in 17.5 and mod. I'd say it was a succesful debut for the car on CRC black carpet.
Very nice! It's great to hear that this platform works great on all types of surfaces. Any idea on an eta for more kits?

Last I heard was another week or so. They are waiting on sway bar holders from the manufacturers.

Yes, we have no cars on back order right now. So if you order over the next few days you should guarantee yourself a kit.

The car is stupid fast, ive been picking up .1 after .1. You can read my message on the previous page. Thr build quality is pretty good, a few small issues suck as the shock towers needed sanded down .1mm on thr bottom to fit properly. The fade on thr car is ridiculously low.

Cons you have to buy some extra spur gears, because you can only get 3 teeth per spur gear. But theyare really easy to change, just 4 screws.

Default Gizmo

What turned me on to this car is the infinite adjustments that you can make. I come from an 1/8th scale On road background. We adjust everything by turning the pillow balls out or in to adjust the cars. This car is the same but uses turnbuckles. we can adjust this car in 1/4 to 1/8 turn increments to where other manufactures use braces that choose the increment for you. And you have to buy every one of those pieces. This car comes ready to run and choose every setup you want to put under it. You dont need to run back to the pit to change a toe block. You just adjust it at the track and put the car back down to try your adjustment. I know Im very happy with my car and will do more testing to let everyone know. But, thanks to Christian, I believe I found a good home. Plus this car is very very new. Theres a ton more to come.

My experience (only a few runs so far)....

Pros
  • on pace out of the box (comparable to my a800)
  • huge amount of forward traction
  • good rotation
  • build quality awesome (just a small amount of hand finishing - just like every car)
  • diff is super smooth and leak free

Cons
very tight fit for electronics
  • depending on motor used, you may have to cut or grind motor tabs down
  • would have liked the brass weight/spine anodised black like the rest of the car

Very happy so far. I race on large outdoor tracks in 13.5t blinky.

Leonard.
