I have put quite some effort into building my car and also hope to see her do well on the circuit.

I am I had a heavily modded DM1 and the cobra, all great cars, but this thing not even dialed in at all feels good.

I run both 1/8 open and GT.

1/8 open > 9port Flash PT $375
GT > 9port Flash Rally $361

Offroad > 4port Keepoff $349

Not much of a price difference.

You will have to use an offroad setup station for a GT car. The onroad setup station is build for the pan cars with the quick release axles, which are smaller than the axles for a GT.

For onroad use, you will need to get one. Car setup is an essential on pavement. You can get away with a little bad setup on an offroad buggy but not so on its onroad variant.

What he said. They only thing they're good for in offroad is setting camber. Running GT you need one.
