No, I don't think so. I've had races every weekend for just about the last two months straight. It's time to hang out with the family and go out on a Saturday night!

The engines run VERY well, both the gas truck engine and the buggy engine. Trinity is waiting for the first shipment to get here (should be any day now) and then they'll be on their way out to everyone.

What do you mean? You can select buy one right now directlyf from their site for the the price listed.

Last I heard, they were still waiting for their first shipment and that is why I haven't seen one on my doorstep yet!

Tower has the off-road .12 listed for $240 I believe.

does this car look like it lacks the down travel of the 777 and prospec?

It looks like it has as much as my mbx-4xr, which is still pretty good, but it is not as much as the 777's and the like.

There is more down travel than what Adam is running.. He has limited the travel.

I've always felt that running the least amount of downtravel that will still allow you to go through the bumps and jumps of the track is the best way to go.

I completly agree. That is exactly how I set up my car when I was running offroad over ten years ago. On short choppy bumps, it helps the tires skip over the top of the bump instead of falling into them and bucking the car when it comes back out.
