Hahaha, yeah, only thing REALLY holding me back was the engine and semi-slow servo's. If the engine and 2 speed were fine, I would be happier and would have had a better result, no doubt about that.

The R4 is next on the list, I wonder if I'll be the only one at the Nats with one

Dude dont say shit like that, that why everyone takes the piss out of you. The capricorn is a quicker car than the rrr and so it should be its much newer and lighter.

Judging by the landed cost of the hobby shops, the Street price would be between $660.00 to $675.00, it will also depend on how desperate the store wants to get rid of the kits, but yes it is a price of an expensive 8 scale.

If Toso had still been on the team the Worlds outcome had been quite different if you ask me.

As quick - not faster.
Only noticed that it could take off almost with the Capricorn, but I know it isn't as fast.
Chill.

Whats TQing the worlds got to do with it? I was just stating that the newer era cars are quicker than the cars that are 4 or 5 years old like the MTX4 and RRR.

DJ the capricorn and Xray are quicker than the RRR no doubt about it, if they werent why the hell would mugen and Kyosho be bringing out newer lighter cars? Seriously mate think about it before you reply.

And you will find that the car that did TQ at the worlds had the newer generation driveline in it from other brands.

Whoa I aint saying the RRR is on par with the newer cars! There's no way, unless you tweak the hell out of it, it would do that today.
It was probably how I had the clutch set that day, that it pulled quickly out of the corner and it looked almost the same as the capricorn the last race I saw it.
If it were that good, I wouldn't be uprading later on, but instead just buying new parts.
