Ran the car the past few weekends. In fact I won the Halloween Race at RC Car World. I find the car is really good as the grip comes up. I'm just hoping that it runs as good with high grip. I will be testing that this weekend. Post your setup and I will chime in on it. Going to try to post mind as well. Soon as I write it down.

So how are these things holding up? Durable? Any good on carpet? I've been reading they are better outdoors. Any issues straight out of the box?

They are fairly durable, and you need the aluminum chassis to make it work on high grip carpet. I have only been running mine for 1.5 months. I just wanted to try something different from my VBCs.

It is fast and carries corner speed more then my D07 ever did. It will break if you hit stuff hard enough but no more then my D07 did. (I broke a couple of rear hub carriers and a front wishbone moulding but they were fairly hard hits from other cars).
So far I like it.

I just picked a new one up for pretty cheap and I will probably end up buying the aluminum chassis and a few other bits. So far my 3racing Ultimate has been the most durable car Ive ever driven and has outperformed all the expensive brands. I also read that this car is very good outdoors which is good because a new outdoor track will be opening shortly in my area. I'm just afraid that they will release the Mi6 or something soon, but if rear hub carriers is all I have to worry about I'll just buy a few of those. I also like that I can use a Shorty pack
