exactly, it's all in driver abilities and car setup. No shaft car at my local track can OUT accelerate me as far as I can tell.

I agree with James on that one. I run an Mi2 and i feel that no shaft car where I race has the advantage.Even out of the corner.I have seen James xxx-s and it's fast as any shaft car also.

BTW,everyone knows reedy stock motors suck.Come on Black kat.

I don't think that motor is gonna be coming out at all from what I have read.

The MVP can be made to work well, but you really have to play with it, I got good performance out of it but gearing was alittle bit of a pain.

You should see me drive with a one way. You wouldn't be worried about me passing you, you'd be worried for the guy in front of you....
