It will need a little work to be truelly race friendly. Such as Aluminum Caster plates and it will handle better with the long rear shock kit from the Hara D8.. the caster plates on the "S" are plastic..

The engine will also have to go. Drop another $200 and get the Losi 8ight 2.0 RTR. Asides from the servos being a little weak that car can run just about any track right out of the box.

I'm running one and besides a few upgrades like the engine(a bit too slow for me)which I switched and a few cheap aluminum upgrades I really enjoy it.
