Congrats Chill!! The 2009 season will be one to remember.
I'm just ready to run this car already!! I don't think the rain is ever going to stop here in Bama. Doc and I are planning on trying to attend a race on Dec. 27, in Fort Walton Beach Fl., maybe it won't rain down there!

Rob
Shorter front link should make the car fill twitchy and maybe little more stable,the longer link will give the front end more traction,so in turn should incease overall steering.I also don't like to take out rear toe,when you do that it seems to take away high speed off power turn in...

So overall how is everyone liking the car?

I'm done with kyosho and im lookin for somethin new... The only thing that I dont like so far is that it's the same car as the Radical Z8... Kind of gives me a feeling that it's cheap...

I was gonna run the O Z01B but then I started lookin at this... What do you guys think?

The car is not 'cheap' and it comes out of the box with every adjustment possible. You will not have to buy any additional 'plates' to change toe in, anti-squat, etc... This is a very good car...

Yeah I'm just not sure about the fact that the car came from another company. Or whatever the deal is...

The car is really a Nanda buggy. IRC was going to import it and that fell through... then TQ decided to import it but they did a much better job. They had the factory change the kit to match the US market better and now its really good.

Its not really the "same version". It has some ideas from TQ thrown in there that makes the car a TQ buggy and not the other brand. The 09 version will be even better with the lighter parts on the car. I have had no issues with this car at all in the 9 months I have ran the car. I have placed at the top of the "A" main at all the races that I have attended this year with the TQ buggy. I do not think you would be dissapointed in your choice.

Yes, they had the factory change some of the plastic to make it stronger etc along with some other changes. They are testing new stuff now to improve the buggy more..

So is the 09 version gonna be a different design or layout or is it just gonna be a few different parts?

I know they are changing the chassis, not 100% exactly what, but they are also trying to lighten the buggy some, not alot, but some. Its kinda like what Losi did, they call it a 2.0, but its really just refined...
