Out to try the stiffest rear spring setup yet with gold colored ABC rears (they call them copper). Took off a touch more front camber and added a touch more rear camber and increased rear droop by a mm up to 2mm. I think I got the front and rear camber settings going the wrong way during practice... No wonder it started flipping in odd places. The car was so close last week and stayed really flat in the sweeper, being a little loose mid corner. The added rear stiffness should stop the double set the car was taking around low speed corners and the camber should tighten the car up in the long fast corners. I can hope I'm finally close to a more predictable and consistent drive. The only other odd problem and it might be the servo is that the car doesn't like to center on long straights. I'm running a basic Savox 0254-mg digital. I'm not sure if it's slop, the wrong front toe or the servo choice. On the bench is centers just fine.

Anyone need any Grid or Genetic spares? The parts trees are about half and half for the Goose and now I have a box of parts I don't need and willing to let go for a parts swap or sell them outright.

Well the Goose is competitive. It acts a little strange on carpet. It was traction rolling for about 5 laps until the tires picked up debris and then handled great for the rest of the run. Laps get faster and faster through the run and the car gets more stable. I wish I could drive it to it's potential. It would help if the upper front and rear links had more positions available other than parallel.

When is this little gem going to be back in stock? Now that I've run mine, there are a few guys who would like one.

I have two Goose for sale, both in excellent condition. One has all the hop-up parts on it.

I can post pics later tonight for any who are interested.

There are 4 RTR's in-stock, but I guess you want the non-RTR's..
Should really check out the TOP Racing Sabre 4WD Mini's. Those are also 210mm and they kickarse.
Easily my favorite m-chassis out of them all. That and the Tamiya TA05 M-Four.
