Brushless 8th scale race in HD

RE: From nearly last to first E truggy VS Nitro truggy

Sure man, that's why I built my "Hat Cam". Its extremely useful to analyze not only my driving, but the way the rig handles the track. I've made setup changes, changes to my driving line, etc......

RE: sprint 2 sport

You might be over, or under geared. Smoking the comm like that often means there is something else wrong. When there is NO MOTOR in the car, is there a ton of drag when you try to roll the car? ...
