You will love it. I love mine. The speed and power are amazing. It handles well.
I had the earthquake 8e last summer. I loved the power and speed...but it didnt handle well.
And the oversized tires put alot of stress on the diffs, and steering parts.
I feel the backdraft's smaller tires will cure what issues my earthquake had. I had even considered converting the E into a B. But then i used the brushless system in another model and sold it as a roller.
I know i couldnt go wrong for the price! The BL system alone is worth $80-$100.
It may actually be faster than i will need. If that turns out to be the case, i think ill use a jumper on 1 of the batt plugs and use a 3s lipo.
