The full size trucks dont have them why should the rc cars.

I agree. I hope the race promotors put an end to it. As with any racing though if you can find a performance advantage use it.

I agree. Wings on a SCT. Thumbs down. Mainly because I imagine it will last about half a race the way I crash hehe.

How do you guys feel about the snap-in dish wheels coming soon to the 22sct? I get the feeling it's just baby steps towards full dish wheels in all forms of SCT.

Seems like no one objects to bodies with a hundred aero holes in them. I guess the argument can be made the full size trucks have real roll cages that let the air though?

like ryan wasnt fast enough, when he took spoiler off he turned his fastest laps.... i was qualified 4th and had no chance of hanging with him... oh by the way in case no one mentioned it, he was told to take it off..

I personally run the "stock" setting which is 0 all around. Truck works great for me! I am sure others will chime in.

I think it looks good. And why not? Lots of things have wings. Birds, chickens, wing tips, import commuter cars. Why can't a Durango have wings?

I'm attaching a picture of the real life prototype. I think it looks pretty good.

I'm guessing with all that engineering, plywood, and downforce, you could take a 35MPH turn at like... 27MPH.

I don't need to use a BEC or Glitch buster at all with the SCT Pro, whereas I really needed the glitch buster when I was running the Mamba Max Pro (otherwise same electronics all around). So perhaps still worth saving a couple of dollars if you find you don't really need it.
