Is the clutch centax?

Is it a locked rear spool, or rear diff?

Also, who makes the best handling Lola/GTP bodies out there for 200mm?

Yes centax......I think I heard from somewhere that they are shipping with the 4D clutch rather than the 3D (but not sure)....but still centax.

Rear diff...but you have lots of options for a spool....

Don't know....but the Frewer one is not bad........

it is just the difference between 4pins and 3pins. the 3D (3pins) works equally well as far as I know. I havent used one as I use a mugen clutch on my kyosho. Its a 4D (4pins) clutch

the 3racing quality is a bit better then GPM but way behind any japanese hop up brands. look for kawahara, 5 stars and square if shops near you carry them.

You will likely get bias comment here to be honest. What i can say, the best car is "my car".

I think you should go to the track and see it and feel the car yourself and get what you realy like.

I like this car over the others, I think its built like a brick and tons of fun to drive.
But then again I have had mine for over 2 years, it just keeps evolving to a new beast everytime something else comes out.

Randman have you had a chance to drive other nitro cars, I know you are a little picky with the electrics. I remember you had a R2 now its a Yokomo, if I am right. Are you gonna give a R3 a chance, or stick to what you useing now. (I know its off topic)
just curious.

Also I can post a few pics of car if you like
