Exactly right and why I love 1/8th. Anyone can get a car to go around but going REALLY fast is a challenge. TC if I get the car right, I just have to be smooth and keep it off the walls and I can win. 1/8th I have to push as hard as I can and attack the track very aggressively to get the best lap times. If I tried to drive a TC that way, I would be slower.

actually for me if i run 1/8th & then run sedan I'm much faster but if i just run sedan it takes me to long to get my mind dialed in just my 2cents

Ow man, what did I get started?

To go really fast is hard with every car, wether it's a TC, 1/8 or even a Tamiya M-03.
And if you want a real challenge as an onroad guy go try some offroad and try to be competitive....
