1S ESC is a really nice to have, otherwise you need a voltage booster with 1S.

I have run the new car two race days now and had a problem with the pivot ball screw backing out. Is it common to use blue locktite in the threads of the pivot ball screw?

Yes, an air flow straightener is needed. I would think length needed would be a function of diameter, but I don't know the magic L/D. Plastic straws are not as cheap as you would think.

I did see one of the HPI GT40's race last weekend and it did quite well. I wonder how long we would have to wait for the new GT40?
