That was cool. as they say practice makes perfect and it's just a matter of time you'll be just like the best driver out there. so someday i'm looking forward to see a good jump Koo :-)

The jumps are killers. There isn't enough run to get the car up to a certain speed. Hairpin turns are almost immediately after each jump and the track is bumpy. But all is in good fun......

Default Race Performance

I am looking at buggies and Kyosho is at the top of my list for both nitro 1/8th and electric 1/10th. I know these are well built and engineered and I know that this buggy has many world titles in the capable hands of pro racers. But how competitive is the average club racer with the SP2 WC? Is it too much car for an average driver? Or, not. Do you have to upgrade any of the standard WC components to be competitive? I know, I know, big bore shocks...

Please share your thoughts and success stories.

Thank you!
Jeremy

No hop-ups are needed for the WC. The current shocks in the WC is already good enough. Unless you have jumps that are going to take you 10-15 ft high

The WC is a car for any driver. I'm just an average driver and can easily handle this car without much problems. Turning is great.

Are the big bore shocks worth me spending 330$ for the shocks all the springs and all the thin unis. or maybe selling it and trying out the rc8. Will i see a big difference with the big bores. Also does anybody got any ideas on how to lighten the buggy up.

No point converting. Wait for the new buggy and hopefully it comes with the new big bores

You'll need to get a set of knuckles. The stock cast ones are junk.
