How far can you go with a Sports2?

Same as title... since it is getting hard to find ASF-based Mini-Zs, but Sports and Sports2 are abundant... how far can you take a Sports two with the limitations of the stock board? (although I can get an ASF board from Banggood at a later date if I desired)

I just bought one because I couldnít pass up the price and Iím getting back into Mini-Z... (just got an MA-020ve Pro drift set with the Mazda body and the gyro to build off of... Already changed to the Audi and added rubber tires) I wanted to get a Ďstockí Mini-Z to race in the local stock class... but I also wanted a platform to build from once I see what the local racers are running so I can build to match...

I could eventually swap in an ASF board though right? (Either original or Banggood)

Yup, easy swap in... Kyosho really complicated things with the sports. ASF can pretty much handle any 130 motor (with proper gearing)... and sports was a step back to the early AM days. Actually, I think the AM cars had a higher tolerance. I wouldn't buy a sports unless I needed one to participate in a stock class race.

Thatís the reason I got it... stock class 90mm... but I wanna use my KT-18... so Iím thinking about swapping out... but I may not have to if Iím only going 70t...

I ordered the banggood 2.4ghz board and hope to convert a 27mhz mr015 or mr02. Hope my soldering skills are good enough for the job. Will just have to know which wire goes where.
