Given the specs motor low speed, there was not much of a difference. 2nd place car was running the plastic lot ones. This was on black carpet.

I have the R and it needs more steering, I'm maxed on steering travel but mid corner still pushes a bit wide than I like. This is on asphalt so if the zero degree plastic ones are too loose then I'll keep my 3 degree hubs. Not trying to spend another $40 for the 2.5 hubs.

are you running front spool?
front soft spring
2.5Mil front gear diff
one step stiffer rear spring or one hole upright rear shock position
low RC front and high in the rear camber link setting

Yes, the hop up option spool. Everything else kit.

I have the shocks mounted in on the front and out on the rear. Same shock package all around.
