I believe standard distribution channels should have them in hand and you should be seeing more out in the wild soon!

I was able to race mine this weekend and I was happy with the first outing to be sure. There is alot to test with the new motor mount, and i feel like there's a lot of new potential in the 7.2!
was your Maiden voyage on black carpet or asphalt?

Do you put a lot of effort into saying retarded things or does it come natural? I'm really not being a jerk, I'm just curious at this point

I would say it doesn't. Im sure you can get deep into the weeds and argue that based on efficiency it could affect it but....When you can have 2 cars setup and geared identical, give them to 2 different drivers you end up with 2 different temp readings based upon driving styles.

I always zip tie an antenna tube to the upper deck so that it lays flat. When you have to remove the upper deck - just slide out the antenna wire.

This forum doesn’t give the option for a poll. Trying to decide on what combo of motor and esc for USGT. I was leaning toward mclan but heard great things about R1 and Trinity. I’m being a flounder ��

Ready for my first race on Saturday. Huge thank you to Jeff at Activrc.com. And ignore the old D4 motor, I hurt my MC2 and will be putting in a new R1 Wurks on Saturday right before the race.
