if i recall correctly t-bar cars work better in low bite (asphalt), and link cars hi-bite(carpet). just dont quote me on that

True, but it is all preference. They just need different set-ups. It is like the people that say the DB12R can't handle well on carpet... it just needs a crazy un-conventional set-up.

Default Tbar/spring

Well we have been testing both for a while,we have found that both will work well in all conditions but setup is key.

We have spent many hours with this design and have found it to do a great job on all surfaces,we now most racers will use the car on high bite carpet and that is were we have been doing most of our testing,We will releases other parts for the asphalt but the first version is ready for the rug.

We have advanced the performance of the tbar with central weight bias which will allow the car to get back to center faster increasing corner speed.We are also testing some other dampner tubes that will allow you to change the cars dampening with out changing tbars

Wow, it's good to see a local, small company doing big things... Local racer I hope to see Full Throttle make a big waves in the 1/12 scale world and I'm on board for the ride. Question, what have you guys found out when testing the different front ends the car can use???

on the car kit we are still working on it . we will be testing and
making changes in the next week or so, until we feel this car can be one of the best out there....

so after the testing . make the final changes we feel best for the car ,we will have it on the site soon .
