Talking We had one at the shop...

We used it in my offroad 1/8 buggy. It was very cool for going through the flat sections. When you jump and you need a quick turn it would countersteer you off the line. Anything where you might be off camber totally blows.
When you are full tilt down an 180 ft straight and you need to make a 90 at the end, stab the wheel and pull wood. It was very fast there without any mistakes.
It worked awesome in the parking lot with bald tires!

with some adjusting, but u mostely turn with out the rearend coming around, its good for staying striaght, but the gyro doesnt like the rearend coming around,,,, so it force u to drive the right way, an thats a good thing

thicker rear diff fluid will help, but still is going to make u brake an turn,,,, the fasterway is the smooth an slow way.....


if u want to drift, put duck tape around ur tires.
