LRP = Vendetta TC

It's bigger than the M18 and a hell of a lot heavier. Nice car, but a totally different feel vs. the M18. M18 is quick/nimble and super fast but needs a steady hand. The detta TC is heavier and more stable, but just isn't as nimble. Body rolls like a hog w/o the sway bars. I like both, once you got the alum rear hubs the detta was a little tank on the track and was just as fast once you went BL.

If you can't see a tweak and the car sit flat on a reference surface you know is flat, then the chassis is probably ok. Check bearings and suspension action for binding. If that checks out put the car on some scales and check each corner to make sure one doesn't have more weight than the other.

Got my first 1/18th m18 car today, I also received my adjustable shocks and springs by atomic as well. What's everyone doing for bodies though?

Default Fastest 1/18 1/16th on carpet road course

Am I correct that an properly set up, X-Ray M-18 PRO, with the best brushless and lipo setup will be faster on a larger carpeted road course than any RC18, Losi, Scalpel or Vendetta even with larger 380 brushless motors ?

The Assoc. RC18R tires/wheels don't fit the M18.....The M18 has a hex style axle mount, where the RC18R style uses a slot/pin style axle mount. Even if they could fit, the RC18R tires/wheels are so much taller that the M18 would be rolling over a lot...
