god i love the way it lands the big triple and inmediatly there is a close corner and it takes it too fast and it just landed!! were you using some additive in the tyres? it looks on rails on that corner.

Have you tried the car in really bumpy and low grip tracks? All vids that ive seen were in high traction indoor tracks and the floor looks like asphalt. What a nice tracks you have there.

i think the move in a2 was just tires rubbing each other and he got the bad end of it,the move in a3 is very questionable,i think jaroz should have waited but thats me,you think lucas is good at driving this you should see him wheel a 2wd buggy around,he can drive

Earlier in the thread I posted this up, Blair driving at NorCal. I wouldn't call it a really low grip track, as it is watered, but it isn't high grip like smaller clay tracks are.

So I guess "Steve" is out of the question...

Hopefully we'll be running on the new layout tomorrow at NorCal. There are some pretty big jumps I've heard.

My B-day is in July, so this will be a birthday gift to myself

What is the idea behind the chassis being so narrow? I may have missed it but I pretty much read this thread cover to cover and didnt see where it was addressed.

everything is tucked close the the center drive line and no need for a big chassis. keeps weight down.

It also prevents chassis scrub during cornering and on rough tracks. With all the components close to the center line, there is no need to have extra material hanging off the sides.

I'm going to need a nice pit mat to go with my new buggy, any chance in seeing one with a Tekno logo nested in the center of it?
