This truck is soooo much easier to drive than the nitro. Im going to guess that the weight is the reason. This trucks weighs 16.5lbs compared to 9.5lbs for the nitro. Up till about 80% throttle the truck is still squirrelly, but when I hammer it down the truck instantly locks in place and just drives as straight as can be. Another cool thing is watching the suspension work as it drives by. Its not as stiff as the nitro trucks but man she drives like a dream. Im hoping that 12s yields 90mph. My temps at 80mph were between 130-135F for the motor and 120-125F for the esc's. As the packs drained I got slower and the temps lowered. Now I could be wrong here, but im thinking that with 12s my temps should be lower. If thats the case then I can throw quite a bit more gearing at this thing. Overall im very pleased and well on my way to 100mph.

BTW this is now the fastest Flux in the world
