Kyosho Turbo Optima Mid Special vs Modern Buggies

Post by wydraz »

Wrong tyres and some overheating issues but overall it's first race went well.

Ended up on my roof 3 or 4 times :( but still happy with 3rd in the B final.

I was the only person running brushed (19 turn) and all the other cars were 24 or more years newer!

I only had rock hard Yokomo dogfighter tyres at my disposal but I think soft 2" CAT full spikes would have helped a lot.

Great fun 8)

Looks like the old lady was going just as "well" as the more modern cars in these peculiar conditions! At least the suspensions aren't too stressed :mrgreen: It's all in the tires...

good job!
