I saw it run at my local track and it was pretty fast. I don't know if it will accomodate lipo packs tho!

I have ran one now for 2 years and love it. Very fast car. Finished 2nd at our last big local race. 009 got first by less then a second and a 3.5 pro got third just a couple of seconds back. Should have won but caught a flapper.

Like all top end cars. They can win with the right driver.

Lipos fit with no problems(just in case you wondered). Hope that helps.

Thank you for the info. I'm really considering running electric sedan this winter.

the front spool is not good. It is too soft, so it will be destroyed after a couple of runs in modified. Otherwise it is a really good car, aluminium dampers is a + Another negative thing is the servo mount. You need to cut a peace in the servo to make it fit.

If the front spool is not good. What did you do to compensate?

I have only used up 2 spool in 2 years. If you stay off the boards there will be no problems. I always check it after each run and stay on top of it. I go through cvds fast. Ever month or two. It wears at the pin.
