What i have seen and heard is that it is a really good and fast car. Very nice engineered, al parameters are adjustable. My opinion that its better engineered then the FG.

It's definitely not a rookie car, you really have to know how to adjust the correct settings.
Former world champion Hessel Roskam (ex FG teamdriver) is driving the contrast this year.

Problem for us here in the US would be parts support... After running a Technokit (which had excellent support when I bought it) I think I'll be going with FG for my next car... Although the RS% and Harm look mighty nice also...

lol....23cc is the maximum for the official efra and ifma 1:5 onroad races . The 26cc is the maximum for the 1:6 offroad races.
Using a 26cc in a 1:5 onroad race is disqualification.

Look at the ROAR and IFMAR rules... It'd be a letdown if it came with a 26 and I'd have to buy a 23 to race.... The faster you go the more room you need....

I don't adhere by ROAR rules as there is NOONE around to race me .... cept people on 500 CC motorcycles and Volkswagon Jettas ......

and THEY LOOSE !

But I can understand the reasoning of it comming with the 23 cc motor now; as I was unaware of there being any such regulations for racing on a circut or with other 1/5th scalers. Thanks

I was at the Nationals last weekend, and these 23's are faster then my reed ported 28.5. I now know I will be buying a real motor next time! I will be looking into getting a 26 from 2 stroke Tom!

Tell me more! I've been eyeing up the contrast car for over a year now, yes looks much better then the FG! Just maybe I'll have to bring a couple of these cars into north america, and find a driver for one!
