Are we talking about hop ups only? I have a guy that we signed on our team who was able to do 20 laps tops with his B44.1 in the main. He is knocking on 23 laps now with his Caster. That is certainly more than a few seconds a lap, so it can be done. He is certainly happy and will never look back.

But that of course isn't a guarantee that you would get the same results....but you would have support like never before. All in all, there is a performance difference from car to car, battery to battery, servo to servo, motor to motor, radio to radio. However, it is finding the right fit for you. Obviously things like air filters probably won't make much of a difference.

My air filters cut 2-3 seconds off every lap, mostly because I remembered to attach it this time and my engine didnt eat dirt
