Mr Max.You have confirmation
The new Fly viper is the fastest thing out of the box by far. beats the previous Viper easily due to its Fly racing motor (as standard in previous 2 releases...not sure about this blue job, though) and slightly better profiled tyres (they seem softer too). The new version is also far more stable (old version had a dropped magnet pod so it tended to hit track over bridges and de-slot). If you want high speed racing then this is your best bet
The only downer I found from this new range of Vipers is that the acceleration is way down on the previous nippy version. It starts like a slug as the magnet has too much downforce. However, as soon as the momentum is up it really tears the previous version down a strip. If you have a flat-out track layout this will be a perfect car, but if you prefer a tighter curvy track, then the sluggish pick up after braking could be a frustration.
It really is a lovely model design, despite rather delicately fitted rear wing, mirrors, and a very flimsy chassis. If you have the horrendous cash spare that Fly and distributors want to maintain for this car, then you will not be dissappointed.
