Looks nice! I do not like the body though. I do have a question, I see this truggy is like the Losi 8T 2.0 where the motor is moved alot further up than normal. I have heard this will decrease rear traction and might hurt handling some. Is this true? If so why would they do it? I can see it turning better but at the sacrifice of traction, I would think you would want the best of both worlds. Am I wrong?

probably not...but its most likely a fair trade off....then again it might not be.
