The Sprint is a good car, pretty tough but as far as racing goes it depends on what you expect from it really.

If you're one-way'ing the front and locking the rear end then I'm guessing you're wanting to drift with it?

Well honestly more race than drift, more of straight lining with some turning

Would ball diff on both front and rear be good thing in this case?
I'm rebuilding a sprint right now, expect to do a bit bashing on streets/parking lots with it and thinking this might be it.


As for motor and ESC, I've heard good things about EZRUN Brushless combos. The Flux system should also be good choice as well as Castle Creations stuff.
