I have tried the aint-squat setup (rear arms leaning backward, B setting) and it is helpful for controling pitching of the chassis. This seting along with a lowest roll center configuration is very good on low to moderate traction surfaces. I have not had the opportunity to try prosquat (rear arms pitched forward).

I thought it was an intersting design. Am interested to see how well it stands up to concrete curbs at 100mph. Yes the body looks very good.

Could be just the shot we need to get the GT class into more racers hands!!!

Nice looking car but with the new TQI radio system you can only unlock the electronic speed governor if you have an iphone or itouch and that's how you get to the 100+ MPH. If you don't have an iphone or itouch you are S. O. L. for getting it to 100 MPH. Also keep in mind the rear diffuser and front splitter are actually part of the chassis not the actual body. Looks good but at $1,100.00 retail, no thanks.

I just want a new body option for my 1/7th DM-1!!... And this thing, though Traxxas, does look nice..

Typical Traxxas - nice looking, made of plastic, overpriced..

+1 I remember when Traxxas had a real race program (late 80's early 90's).

Can anyone tell me if a stock pull/Sping-start Losi 454 will mount up to a DM-1 with the stock mount, or is the backplate too big?
