MRX6 is similar with 977 EVO2, wide front end and wide rear end. It also push is some tight corner.

C803 is easy to drive, rock solid and very smooth. you never feel 1/8 on road can smooth like that.
Yes! I must agree the Capricorn 803 is very easy to drive comapred to ,my 977 viper wc and Arc 8.0! The car has amazing steering and can be competitive with the box kit set up! The potential of the 803 is huge so you the learning curve is vast!!

How do rear upper arms hold in a crash? I'm asking because I'm not happy at all on those in C03. They have same configuration.

Yeah just finished rebuilding the car i just bought. It seems much better. Car generally feels more complete than C03. Could u guys share some set up if u can? It'd be helpful if u mention about track info together. It seems hard to find set ups on the net for this car. Thanks!

Just look at the chart carefully you will see between big bore & std the 2 color spring have a splash on each end of the spring

How do you guys like F1 bars? 2.3mm F1 rear bar is the only one in stock in RCTarget and I want to know how it compares with 3.0 stock rear bar.

While some people don't like them, I prefer the F1 bars and use them front and rear. I have a selection of rear bar sizes I ordered from capricornrc.com in Italy. Mind you, shipping is a little pricey ordering from them. Rctarget can order just about anything you want from Capricorn so you might give them a call and see what they can do for you.

I like the front F1 bar I have too. I don't see why some don't like it? Well aside from being pricey. Why do you like it if I may ask?

I don't like them because the softest setting on the front bar is waaay too stiff for me. The rear bar feels like an extra spring and it takes 2 minutes to change the wire bar to another wire bar and they are simple to make your own custom bars with more choices.
