Any TC + Foam Tires + 3.5t-4.5t motor with a lot of timing = sub 2 second runs on NP, kind of easily. If you need, add a little sauce. My redcat lightning with a 5.5t pops wheelies and still runs a...

Several brands have FWD touring car chassis, and I understand they're generally faster around the track vs 4wd cars, even if you have to add weight to make spec. But that's on carpet or asphalt...

I'm just excited about the new suspension blocks. No toe adjustment was gimping all the arrma rigs, especially the limitless. These new parts should fit all the 6s vehicles.

...I'm not sold on the rear motor idea at all. I've seen too many wheelies to know that isnt the way to go, and the steep gearing everyone is pushing these days is only making it worse. On top of...

1/8th scale is a sort of plateau for speed, both in RTR and to a degree in race rigs. For example, the Traxxas Slash 4x4 VXL is rated at 60mph for 1/10 scale, but the 1/5(?) scale X-Maxx is only...
