How did it handle Isaac? Was it worth it and highly competitive? Did they hit the hard wood or did they put something in front of that?

Rubber tires on carpet and very high traction. The car handled very well. This was my first time running the car. Three belt thing is talk as it was just as fast down the straight as other cars. The thing that blew me was how fast it goes from left to right so corner speed is not an issue. We race with "click tracks". Hard wood? That's on the edge and the Xray ran into it. Like I said any car will break.

Tekin? I got one for sale with the hot wire.

I know that arms will break no matter what, please don't think that I am just trying to give negative comments on this car, reason I'm asking is I want to get this car and just want to know how durable it is.

Drove indoor race a couple of weeks ago with track lines made of firehoses.
If you clip them with speed you know you going to break something or rip something off.
I did a couple of times trying to cut the coners as close as possible and spun a few times in the process.
Nothing broken or even ripped off at all.
So all in all you can say that the car is a bit "asshole" proof.

Cheers Roy

You mean SP 2.0 Version it's a little big so it will hang on the side of the chassis.

Still required some griding on the side belt tensioner mount then it is just like other motors with a short distance of movement...as long as you pick the right spur/pinion it works...

Default E4FS or RS?

The price of these 2 kits are too hard to pass so I am choosing between fs and rs. On a few page back wolfhobbies said it is better to use FS for both outdoor and indoor.
So can anyone tell me the differences and help me to choose. I run mostly outdoor from 17.5 to 5.5 rubber tire. Also which upgrade part or replacement part I should order?
Thanks in advance!!

Check wolf hobbies website as it explains the differences better than I can.

http://www.wolfhobbies.com/product.c...2&product=6848 RS

I would recommend the aluminum c-hubs and steering blocks for sure. K-factory belts are nice. Keep a few front and rear arms, and front driveshafts if you are like me and crash alot.
