HI all

am just wondering if people have tried or have seen how the slot.it cw17 goes , its the four wheel drive LMP car , looks amazing on the outside but the four wheel drive has me thinking , in my days in RC four wheel drive was always quicker , but heavier two diffs and more moving parts so chance of break down was higher

anyway your thoughts please guys

cheers toast

I have the 2WD Audi `R18....goes ok...one of my fastest plastic cars.

Harry from HRW kindly sent me a 4WD version of the same car to try. It wasnt as fast and it seemed to drag its arse somehow.
Maybe it was the tires...silicones.

We run on gloss tracks also and the favoured tire is the NSR ultrgrip so that is what I fitted.

They are quite a big car and seem capable of being improved.

Here, if you are toast then you are cooked or had it.
