How would the car react and handle on a medium to large technical track with medium to low traction and with the car set on rubbers.

Simple. It just will never work. Its like running a 4wd car with a broken belt or bad set up. Constant spin out under power and no control in corners what so ever

afm you will get alot of tire chatter if you want to run a solid
with diff set up and i would run it backwards running a front solid if you really want to try the solid run a front solid with a medium diff in the rear but for high speedtracks where you don't need that much brakes run a oneway with rear diffsettings depending on track conditions

good luck

i was trying to break-in my engine at my front door today. just ran in circle. it's gt4w2l. it handles very great. much better than electric i think. maybe it has the front one-way. like the car very much, but i don't know am i doing the right thing to my engine or not.

Hey Smitty,

Been a while. Always continue to run Sedan while its big. But going to be running more 235mm and 1:8th now. Its starting to pick up here again.

Also going into 1:12th. It just appeared out of the blue this past couple of weeks for some reason. Would you believe they are planning on running a Mardave only stock class. Thats cheap racing at its best in 1:12th.

Still working on the latest and greatest. Be in production soon. Got factories ready and waiting to take the order.

Sounds cool!!
Kelsey and I are still bangin' the big cars( 1/8), our season is just around the corner and ready to go. Sedan's have died at our track, no idea why, but I am putting my two 2 younger kids into sedan, just to get going, then I will turn them loose.
So what's the new gadget today?
Shaft drive nitro 1/8th car?!! I know how much you love that SHAFT!! HAHA

Guys, can you help me? I have a NS3 on my gt4. It is fine when I just started the engine, but once it gets hot, the idle seems to be getting faster n faster. Is there anything I set wrong? Please help. Thanks.
