dstyles:

The default setting on GTX is standard brakes... you have to turn drag brakes on if you want them.

You might be experiencing drag from your motor (stock or 19T?) if so you can simply turn your throttle trim up a few clicks to help make it easier to drive off throttle.

Default VOCABULARY BUILDING

Well, after reading some threads around here and some posts by people on other forums, I thought it was about time we started a little "Vocabulary Building With Steve." So from now on every few days we're gonna put up words that will help you be a little bit more colorful in your conversations.

Sycophant

syc·o·phant ( P ) Pronunciation Key (sik-o-fant, sk-)

1. n: A servile self-seeker who attempts to win favor by flattering influential people.

2. n : A person who tries to please someone in order to gain a personal advantage [syn: toady, crawler, lackey]

Dear Evicerator; would this be a synonym?:

Obsequious

bootlicking: attempting to win favor from influential people by flattery.

Sycophant...huh? Based on your previous position as the leader of the Barry Baker fan club and then your time as BK's pit beyotch does that word carry special meaning for you ?

Well, the BBFC was more of a joke than anything...

And there was no malignant motivation responsible for me "PBing" for Dirt... I am his friend and love the opportunity to go to new places and learn/see new things...

My goal was not to disparage or abase you. It was meant to be good natured ribbing in the spirit of this thread. I'm really sorry if it came off too harsh.
