Default BLITZ

The other night in PRO 2 there was a Kid that hit the light pole on the back straight at full throttle head on with a Blitz and it bounced off. and kept going. i dont know of any other trucks that would do that. Spring loaded bumpers to the rescue. Like Ray said. the Blitz Has alot of Traction out of the Box.

Ray must need a bigger bumper because his truck breaks more than mine. I don't think that bumper is spring loaded, just hinged so you can adjust it. Arn't you sponsored by them? Just check yours.

But Pro4 cars really arn't even too available right now. Parts are slim and cars are backordered. But I think (hope) the class is coming. Mainly cuz the car is a blast to drive!! Pro2 is definitley all about patients and finese. Pro4 feels very similar to my Pro2 car, but no holding back, just pinned!!
I just got the motor and ESC in my SCRT 10. Did yours kinda drag like a brake was on when you let off the throttle? I dont have much drag brake programmed into the ESC, but ut acts like it is set to max.

Exactly. We are tring to get motors with zero drag to them, or slotless. I am currently trying a Mamba and an EZrun to see if I can get it to work. But anything with any drag at all is exagurated big time. But you also need a motor that isn't going to heat up. I've cooked two already. So yes, this car is legit, but it ain't a car you can just pop a motor in and go. There is a perfect motor for this car out there, I think were getting close.
