In the hands of a good driver the M2 is still very stout. I am not eager to dump it over the EVO its cool having both. Which has not been a normal thing for me to do.

hey, i agree. One main problem on the TB EVo 3 is the Torque steer. My 414M 2 worlds is consistant.

it is still limpy. waiting for parts to get in. they should make that platform removeable when it isnt in need. perhaps cars wont get 'lost' on the straight.

yeah, sorry about your luck as well.

Hopefully running the Evo 3 S in the nationals next year, if Tamiya dont sort a team out then I think some of the drivers are going to try and sort something out as someone has contacts for motors and batteries that shud give us a fighting chance! Rick

Congrats on your run at the Euro.
