I do notice that the car has slight high speed understeer, but controllable so I guess that works out fine. Geared at 4.25 and motor temps around 140F. Could go lower but I found it to have better corner exit at that gearing.

So far loving the car. It's also refreshing to see bodies other than the cheese wedge ones that desperately needs a population control. This chassis would make an excellent RCGT car too imo.
Redbones,

It makes an excellent RCGT car!

Yeah you can gear up quite a bit! 3.5 is a good place to start.

Do tell how you built your slipper spool for the TB please.
