Well my Issues with Gitching have been resolved
when i changed electrics from one car to the other i installed DEANS plugs on the motor to allow quick motor changes after having a think about it all ( i calmed down from my Hissy Fit ) this was the only change made from car to car ( However it did not clitch in my Evo 2 )
i removed the DEANS and Presto !!! no issues ,car was perfect

Cheers To All for your words & advice

I also run deans between the motor and speedo for the same reason, had some gliching problems but can't say it was the cause. Now I have a little jewel called the noise stopper by Yokomo plugged in between the speedo and receiver and have no problems anymore.

It's hard to believe it's the Deans plugs that caused the glitching.

Hi guys..... I'm thinking to buy another RC cars for serious race, and here is my shopping choices:

Tamiya TB Evo4 x 2 unit ( 1 for test / play, and 1 for race only )
Tamiya TRF 415 x 2 unit
XRay T1 Factory x 2 unit
Yokomo MR4TC SD

From your race experience everywhere around the world, which car is born to be the champion ? And I'm also considering the strength / quality of material use. I don't like spending time fixing broken parts. Thanks guys......

If you get two cars do it because you run two classes. You should always race what you practice with and practice what you race with. All cars will have slight differences even if set up the same.

BTW: Get the Xray you will have less headaches at the end of the day. I decided to try an other car and I'm starting to regret it.

Hi,

I have the X-ray and I'm very happy with it.
The only thing I don't like are the Alu screws that come stock with the kit.
They are very soft, and strip easely.

Bye Thomas

pucho, any chance you're referring to the Yokomo... I'm about to try their CGM... Currently running the original T1 (although it's slowly turning to an evo2)... I'd like to try shaft again...
