If its upgraded with the worlds suspension (towers, swaybars, etc) then yes if the servos are good and the motors have good compression. THe new towers are black cnced with 3 shock positions on front and rear.

I had a look at the car. The shocks and stuff are standard, however there are alot of new alluminium bits ( hubs, etc) . It has Futaba brushless servos. The radio has a digital display ...x3??? I did not notice the make of the radio.
