With temp telemetry, fuel coolers, very small servos and remote needle valves already existing I cannot understand why there isn't a plug and play remote needle valve nearly as small as an existing fuel cooler. Yes you would still need to tune but you could do it on the fly with a knob on your radio and simply remove it for sanctioned racing.

I would also like to see a removable flipper like the one I have on my LST. I small moded landing gear retract mounted on the front shock tower. It mounts with body clips and is plug and play so it is easy to remove for racing. I like being able to practice without leaving the driving stand to tune or flip my car,

small linear actuators built right into the carb slide and brake pistons to eliminate the large servo and linkage weight and provide ability for applying control of brake and throttle at the same time.

Just for kicks a tail behind the vehicle tied into one of those heli gyros and programmed to do for my buggy what cats and squirrels use there tails for. quick turns and smooth landings.

I talked to a guy about the efi/ throttle body/ ecu and the prototype starts at 15k.
I have a heli that has a servo to adjust the hsn in the air so it is possible. As far as the yaw control I turn it off in my car, it's too intrusive.

I'd be happy to see CNC machined internal diff gears. (Kyo)

Any chance you could post some pics of how you have that set up? I have been thinking about doing something like that as well.

I'd go for traction control. the next step after EFI is electronic traction control. once my tires are like velcro in any dirt and weather condition, I'll be takin' candy from babies...

Isn't that the same as a smooth trigger finger?
