I think I have a brick they can use on the right side to balance the chassis.

I bought a CT4..

It was the biggest pile of crap I have ever seen ever...

I sold it for virtually nothing...

i got a ct5s and it goes like a rocket!
i got it to 80kmh in a short area(netball courts ).
they can hit the 70mph mark, but you need alot of road.
after i hit 80, it seemed to be running out of revs, and space very quickly.

and 80kmh is the accurate speed, got a cop to clock it for me(hotwheel's speed gun is just not up to scratch!!!).

but this new car seems overkill. its simple physics. big HP, low weight= speed.
but no handling of course. mine sucks when a corner comes up.

During a test session the venom speed reader read 88mph. So It definately can go 85 on a consistent basis.

We will do some video of high speed runs soon. ; )

george_georgoul: Sorry to hear that you weren't satisfied with the CT4. Hope your happy with whichever vehicle you have now.

We've sold thousands of CT4's CT5's and CT4R's to thousands and thousands of very happy customers. Guess you can't please them all! Although we do our best to try.

Happy Racing everyone!

Not for nothing, but was the gas tank added as an afterthought?...

Did the designer never see the nitro tc3 and hear story's how the pipe crushes the tank in crashes?....


Boy, I have some issues with company's copying other designs, but in this case, It might have been a good idea......



That's right....I said it....
