I like this kit and I mostly like it because its as close to legal ready to race as I've seen with the .21 motor. The pro kits are dialed at the track.
I would say if your looking into a race ready this would be it. The geometrics are the same as the pro kit.

It appears that it will work bump start or even pull so its universal in the aspect.

There on to some thing with this one.

I have a friend who has one
no problem at all with that or any other plastic
nor metal part for that...all is well thought over
drives very very good
much on-and off-power steering, real planted too

only minus, there are more little parts what makes it
more work to service for a racer...

Is it just me or is everyone and their dog coming out with a nitro buggy?

Looks alright for an RTR; throttle servo placement is noteworthy, as is the overall narrow waistline. Weren't they testing a "pro" version with semi-trailing rear arms?
