I like Bert, so enthusiastic about the hobby and continues to find ways to get faster, most of the time thinking out of the box. I'm sure we can discern whether it is a good idea to slap on a 2.5T non-existent motor or not. He is also the voice of many who feel power is the key, and we have the opportunity to respond to that.

Forum will not be the same without him.

We can't expect everyone to agree with everything we individually say or do. Some of Bert's ideas may be left field to some, but at least he's enthusiastic about it, what is disturbing is the levels some people go to stifle that, The age of social media means that everyone behind a keyboard feels they have the right to have an opinion, and often those opinions quickly degrade into personal attacks / bullying. And that isn't right. Most of us are guilty of it at some stage, myself included.

I'd be more tolerant if he didn't tell me that inertia was "my opinion that I'm entitled to even if I'm wrong".

it was fun watching the tilt test
I believe the Awesomatix new long arms really help to drive easy and more stable and more corner speed...Amx known as low cg chassis the very day first day
having a TC with no cg it will be hard for car to create more mechanical roll grip....don't forget RC as well is a big part too
standard shock TC Is much easily to fine tune to the track condition....you not going to get one TC is 100% perfect for all track condition ,,
