Wait till you get better with the setup of the car and get it hooked up man! on corner power and steering is even better!

What battery set up did you go with?

It was better than my MRE on asphalt! Wait till summer gets here!

How do you feel it ran today good and what do you think of it from the other cars you have run?

Good Luck Monday!

Well honestly I was very surprised how much better it handled than my pro4. I started with the pro4 at the beginning of carpet season so I haven't really drove any other cars besides running a few laps with other guys cars. I just got into carpet racing this year, well with touring cars anyway on road course. I ran oval carpet last year but road course makes oval BORING. The car is so SMOOOTH! Thats what the guys at the track said as well. I also like how it is so quiet. They called me Mr. Whisper today. It seriously just sounds like a whisper going by. You can barely hear it. It is awesome. I think I lost a pinion gear, oh wait it is still going so I guess not. haha Thanks for the Good luck! Hopefully I can do alright. I'm running stock foam too.

Thumbs up

For setup I did a couple different changes from when I got it from you. With the stock motor I am running a 31 pinion with the 102 spur which puts me at about a 27.31 rollout. The motor was coming off at about 150-160 so I think the gearing is alright. All in all Great car. Anyone that is thinking about getting a new car should check this car out and read up on it. I'm sure you will be happy with it as I am!!
