Not with the Betas, that I have ever noticed. Bit more front tire wear over a long main, but that is something I always had with 553 and the old car. In fact, I have noticed it less with the current car than I ever did before.

The E buggy could be a different thing, honestly. I will probably play around with diff setup a bit more with this new car. I've been running the same thing for so long, might be a good time to try a change.

The first two A215s that landed in the US. One was mine, built with 7/4/2 and one was Pro Driver Hunter Kinsey, built with 20/3/5. At the end of the very first day we ever put these cars on the track, we traded radios. Obviously, I was skeptical, too, or I would have just used 20/3/5 from the get go.


Vid from that day. Red car is 20/3/5. Blue car is 7/4/2 You can really see the difference at :54 as they come around an off camber 180. The red car just goes while the blue car steps out and loses ground. Both brand new cars, both on the same tires.

Probably a couple weeks after the kits....

I think the demand has exceeded the expectation. They are currently printing more manuals to be able to fulfill the first order of cars to the US, so that is the main hold up. Should still be very soon, but probably the later half of the mid February mark.

I wouldn't be surprised to see the kits head our way this coming week.
