okay, i was surprised how quick those numbers came out, but that makes sense

The mini cars are fun but getting any real speed out of them is tough because they get out of control real easy, all it takes is a tiny pebble on the road and it will get out of control. I have an rc18t with a 9000kv brushless in it that would probably do 75 or 80 but at 40mph it gets loose and I have to back off the throttle. The rc18t is 4wd and even it has a hard time getting traction, if I go full throttle from a dead stop it will just start spinning all 4 wheels and doing donuts then the tires go flying off the rims.

If you really want to have a good time with rc try to find an indoor carpet track near you, I bet they will have a beginner class on race night that you can run the tamtech in. We race carpet off road at my local track and its awesome, I couldn't imagine what id do on friday nights if I couldn't race. Most guys at any track are very helpful to new guys and will be able to give you a hand, not to say you wont find a couple guys that take it way to serious and act like assholes.
