Idiots stab Traxxas in the back !
Hey Traxxas , love the funny cars , have bought two of them, Have you seen the outtakes traxxas funny car video on youtube? Its just full out of control runs , them thrashing the cars. Making your product look very unappealling. I posted a comment nicley saying not to base your decesion on purchasing this car by what you see in this video, and theye have been going off ! Sending nasty emails evryday.Now you sent these guys these cars for reveiw in good faith and i think theye stabbed you right in the back ! I would strongly consider sending them any more. the daily businesss pactices of Ultimate rc network are amung the worste i have ever seen ! Im doing this because i really want to see the rc drag sport make a real comeback, also a huge fan of force racing , thank you for all the r and d ,and money you spent developing this this great funny car
I wouldn't call them idiots....
I'm not familiar with the new Funny car, but as a moderator who has driven 1:1 Pro Stock for a few years I can say setup is key... [B]Pretty much most of these vids that you are talking about[/B] are showing they are either launching with too much torque, need to add a little more travel into the rear spring or add more "squat", the surface is not free of debris or is not suitable for drag racing, or the driver just has no experience with the car and it's handling aspects.... This isn't a street car, it's designed for the strip.
How long has this vehicle been out there? Surely people don't expect to get their hands on a Hobby Grade Brushless funny car and make perfect launches, low E.T's do they?
Even in REAL 1:1 cars, getting them set up to make your pass clean takes time, and every time you adjust the car the driver has to adjust as well.... Speaking from 1st hand knowledge there..... :cool:
Thing is, you bought a Traxxas, where else are you going to find a 1/5 scale brushless dragster with the support Traxxas offers...
I see lot's of YouTube videos crashing all sorts of RC's and negatives about them, rants in the comments... You'll always have that no matter what you do.... :cool:
