I'll be racing my old rs in many years to come. cant cope with TM rapid development i continuously upgrade my chassis with light weight parts and strengthen it by changing plastic parts with alum options.i thought it would make the chassis heavier but turns out differently. seriously drop down the weight from 1.67kg to 1.61kg. maybe u can try k-factory adjustable ankerman. really improve my lap time

yes most have. if your in Melb. see Lui, everyone has ended up moving the recievers some a bit different to others, it involves standing up the throttle servo for some.

Yeah Lue has been great. Hes the one that got me onto TM. Problem is a i dont run a micro receiver and am trying to solve the riddle of where to mount it with out a) obstructing the brake linkages b) hanging off the side of the car c) sitting so low that it will hit the ground. I guess ill just wait till i see him during the week.

from what it seems, its a horrible car with less carbon plates,less alum parts,old version roll bar, complicated design especially electronic placements. and the price is somewhat higher than the evo.

haven't test it yet, but the concept car is a real sprinter and stable cornering demon with almost stock setup. can push faster lap with better setups. in my opinion, the plain design looks deceiving

I think it is it a very good car so much easier to work on than my +evo electronic placement is excellent!!! 6 easy to remove screws and the entire top tray with electronics and fuel tank come off!! so you can clean your chassis without worry about spraying down your electronics. Better handling the the + way faster out front turns. first day I did .4 better than my +evo
