Default feedback

Here is an email that we have received. Just wanted to share the feedback on the WARPSPEED DEMON.

weekend recap
hello vic
how ya doing? I'm doing fantastic best 200 bucks I ever spent. thanks again. this car is awsome. My racing buddies are pissed off at ya tho heck I lapped one of them and was half a track ahead of the other one they couln't belive there eyes. the only difference on my set up from my orig. tc3 is stand up the rear shocks. hell my best buddy took his losi and threw it in the trash cuz he could not catch me( sweeeeeeeeeet). I finish 1st in the A main and the only one to do 15 laps.

Sorry for the delay. The complete car is the FT car plus the WARPSPEED DEMON chassis.

yes I have the rear shock tower on the front. It had alittle push off power so I laid the shocks down to second hole out. Then I had tons of off power steering but the rear would not follow the front then I stood up the rear shocks and that did it no push. on and off power steering is equal.

You know I didn't realy notice a difference by using the rear tower up front. They say it supposed to smooth out the steering but I think I would have been just fine with the stock tower.

As far as the demon or the IRS as you can tell I chose the demon I liked the fact that the motor and the batteries are switched. The car does react very good. I think you would be wise to spend the extra 50 bucks and get the demon( just to let you know I almost bought the IRS just to save money). something I have learned in all the years I have been racing is if you spend a little you cry alot, but if you spend alot and get the right stuff you only cry one time.

if the quote that pimpedaccord was true as far as sucking then why is my car handling much better and Iam much faster then with the stock tub
and as far as the top guys they are usualy sponsored and have to run the factory stuff .

pimpedaccord, have you even run a Demon? If I were you I wouldn't go spouting off about how something sucks if you haven't even run one. Take a look at how many people who have/are running one say their lap times have drastically improved.
