Maybe they are having too much fun driving it. If you think a lively forum make a certain car good, you should do a double take and think about why you bought the car in the first place.

oh geez, I'm talking about how come people don't talk about the performance aspects of the Impulse or anything anymore. I posted a question quite a few days ago and no one even bothered to answer. The only reply since then was an advertisement for speedtechrc. What's up with that. I'm sure the more active threads reply a lot quicker. I posted a question abou the nitro TC3 and about 5 replies came up in the same day.

most people post about the impulse in the hpi forum, everywhere else seems to not last long.

The Impulse thread on HPI is much more lively. I don't think the Impulse thread on this site is very lively because the name of the thread is misleading. It looks like someone is just informing everyone else that the Impulse Pro was just released. On the HPI forum it is called Serpent Impulse V6.0 or something along those lines.

yes I post in the HPI forums too but I figure a forum like this would be more popular since HPI is for newbie's.

maybe all or most of the impulse drivers are pro's or very good experienced drivers. they have no need to share info cuz they already know what there is to know. they race and win. you know the type of person im talking about. he/she is the person at the track who has been racing for years and only needs to do one heat to make the A's, they're never setting up thier car at the track cuz they already did it at home.....LAST YEAR! . they've got all the cool tools and have a perfectly set engine.

then you get a impulse thinking you'll be as quick as them and your 5 seconds slower happens to all of us. happening to me now. hehe. v1r though.

this is the first time I have heard that you need to be a qualified person so that you can drive a real racing "toy" car !

this is #1013 best joke of the year !

of course you gotta be qualified. you wouldn't throw a serpent whatever to a kid that's never driven an r/c car and expect him to do well.
