Strenge layout, too much plastics. I would also see normal shock than this design. Reminds me on the vintage Tamiya Porsche 959/Celica chassis where the springs were seperated from the shocks.

You're right. To those who don't remember, it looks very similar to this:

And the Tamiya 959 + Celica were very expensive and cramped cars. But they were shaft driven 4wd

The Gambado/Grid review is online now - HERE



To save yourself some pain, don't read it unless you've got some spare cash hanging around...

Tony's review on the Grid sounds very enticing!
Anyone rocking one of these? Sounds like a great chassis to go up against the m05 (this along with the goose!)

Looks nice and might be worth trying. Too bad the wheelbase isn't adjustable though.

Agreed. However, I believe that's a common trait amongst all abc cars.

I'm currently running the M-05 Pro at the medium 225mm wheelbase and I like the way this car handles.

I have spoken to ABC about offering either an adjustable wheelbase chassis for the Goose and the Grid, or a 225mm wheelbase upgrade chassis. They said they were considering it, but so far, nothing has happened; and that was a couple of months ago.

I agree that a 225mm wheelbase chassis would handle better than the stock 210mm wheelbase. It would also allow you to fit a wider range of mini bodies from HPI and Tamiya, as most of their bodies are 225mm wheelbase.

Has anyone tried this car with the oil shocks?
