The prototype Has massive traits that all the JQ's have had, I ran B2b my black ed vs the prototype...
But i guess if You owned a s21+ phone and i gave you a s21+ but said it was the s22+ youd think it was much faster too.

also the mayako is the fastest car I’ve ever driven on the same track compared to the NB48 2.0 Mugen mbx8, rc8b3.1, tlr 8ight x and the hb 819rs

I dont understand Why i need to? I would run the car as my main car if i felt it was better - i have no reason to lie i bought the damn thing.
And why do i need to show someone else me driving around a track? you cant feel what im driving like so makes your point irrelevant.

im just lucky enough to be able to buy most Rc's available and choose for myself after using which i like more, is that a problem?

Heck I'd love to see your collection of vehicles, always fun to see when someone really runs with getting them all !

Because your saying that it handles like a BE, all Iím asking is you provide video evidence. Should be pretty easy since you supposedly have a prototype and a BEÖ if you canít provide this your point is irrelevant

I have the prototype and will buy the production car just so i can have them and try it, then itll sit in the collection as i expect it to drive like a JQ.
I was watching a video of Tessman driving around Adobe speedway to try and make some type of comparison. Yes I know different track and weather, but it did confirm
that the Mayako looks odd. Must say Iím pretty glad I didnít jump on the Mayako bandwagon just yet. Hopefully the buggy will get better and David will do great at DNC.

I have been watching David's videos. First off I wish him nothing but good luck. He actually would take the time to answer my questions via messenger when he was still with HB. He didn't have to but did it anyway.

The bottom line is give him time with the new platform. He had the HB completely dialed. But he had the time in. DR is 1 of the 3 best drivers in the world imo. Give him some time.

Does anyone from the UK had a kit delivered? I am just checking if there is the additional 20% import taxes to be paid in top of the retail price?

I agree that it doesn't look great, but I believe it's because of how blown out the track is and lack of other cars on the same surface to compare to. How rough a track is in reality can be nearly impossible to judge from a video filmed from that perspective. I don't think it was smart to release that video under those circumstances as the first DR "Testing" video from a marketing standpoint, but if a car works and wins consistently marketing won't really matter anyway.
