So is the OS12tr really that competitive?
cause I just bought this for a LD3 Pro
kit i'm building (still). the dude at the LHS was
talkin' shi* about the engine not havin' any
power. I just bought it cause from all i read about
it says it's really reliable and easy to tune.
I'll be racin' next month in novice/begginer level
from previously racing electic stock.
what do you guys think?

At that level, and even a bit beyond, you should be fine with an OS. They may not have the top end of anythung else, and a MT12 has more bottom, but the engine is plenty fast and plenty reliable. Heck, I nearly beat one of my races against a NR12S1 for the simple reason that my OS started and ran, and his flamed out. If only I could drive then....

It also depends on the track. On a short to medium track, you should have no problem. On a longer, more flowing track, you may see a disadvantage. But it really does come down to driving style more than anything

I've got a few days holiday before the new year, so I decided to get myself a Champion edition to build. One thing that I found a little disappointing was.....why did they not include the alloy lower A arms mounts and alloy servo mounts. That car has pretty everything else under the sun???????

So the car DOES exist? How much and what all did it come with. If the price is right, I may have my new ride for the new season

The list price is HK$2580. Everything is orange..including the front one way. As far as I can see.....It comes with all the options except for the items I mentioned in my previous post. Even includes the rear floating mount.

However, the clutch is the older centax (3 pins) and it is not 0.8 pitch teeth........

Well I guess it is the "Champion edition" not the "full option" but I find the lacking lower aluminium arm mounts a bit of a bummer (Thats ont thing I did put on my Pro). The Nylon arms are not that much of a deal, I think the Pro arms are pretty darn good anyway (heck, ive only busted one and im terrible heheheh) Maybe I would change my mind when I seen them in real life though

Whatsup?? use brute force to align the pin...after breaking a few finger nails you will get there!! alternatively...buy a new tank...they now come with the rubber seal instead of the felt seal.....depends if your finger nails are worth HK$80!!
