I agree with McLaren. I personally think the Ninco rubber band setup is a bit of a gimmick. I have a Golf with an NC-2 motor and I've driven it both with and without the rubber band and I couldn't see any difference in lap time or driving characteristic. Having said that, the Ninco setup might have a small advantage on less powerful cars, something like an NC-1. It's just that I think the NC-2 (or anything above it, 5, 7, etc) has a pretty fierce power delivery and I don't think the rubber band is strong enough to handle the power.

SCX 4wds (well, gear driven) on the other hand, for me, definitely have an advantage over 2wd cars (non mag), especially on a twisty circuit. The power could be laid down earlier without the car fishtailing too much, so better acceleration out of bends. In a way, it's also more forgiving to drive. Mind you though, it's no good if the front wheels aren't in contact of the track or worse the front and rear wheels are of different size!

Hey, Mr Porsche!!! Just want to let you know the controller had arrived (again). I've yet to try it out but it's race night tonight!!! So I'll give it a good beating later and let you know how it goes. I now understand why you said there were a lot of little resistors....... Just really don't know how to thank you with all the hard work!
