Looks good! By itself. Can't wait to see three or four of them at a time in that space.

As promised, I am able to get my sport IDT delivered before end of Jan. A 'like' first.

I immediately assembled the electronics components into the semi-assembled kits, it took me around 1 hours. I then tested it in the RCP track with xpower's foam tire (VS rear and S front) which is same as my AWD VE tire setting.

First feeling, this car provides me much more steering than my AWD even it got longer wheel base (official says is 114mm vs my AWD's 98mm). I found that the reason is coming from a larger turning angle of its knuckles. With out of the box setting, I was able to trace those AWD VE with 2 cells lipo powered and 6000kv motor (which means same as my sport IDT) in the track. It came with 10T motor gear, I changed it to 11T in order to gain more top end. Apart from motor gear, I slightly increased the front spring stiffness so as to make its steering less sensitive for more easily handling.

Two things I would draw your attention. The receiver came together with it is not that stable. I thought it is gogolap. I changed its antenna to a longer wire, then everything became normal. Secondly, you may find that the motor is hot after around 10 minutes run time. Xpower should consider to launch a mini fan to cool it down. Be frank, my AWD VE got the same problem!

All in all, it is a value for money kit though I heard that it's price is a bit high. Anyway, I look forward to testing it further in coming weekend. Haha, as I am a weekend driver!

Still have not gotten to driven it but I have heard about the receiver problems from other racers. But instead of cutting the wire and extending it you just have to mount it on top of the servo. Oh well it is too late for me
