Me too. According to imco there are 50+ of them out there. I have a hard time believing that there are that many out there and no one on here has any. I have also heard that there are substantial speed losses due to the size of the gear case unless you are running a very high x dimension. I wish somebody would let the cat out of the bag. I have a conventional bottom deep V that just turned the motors up to 1000+ so I have to figure something out and I was hoping that the scx would be an option.

2 miles at the top end is not to bad if the drive holds together with big HP.

I have heard alot more than that on deeper x's. If that is the case....I gotta turn the motors up to the point that I am tearing up scx's just like bravo's and out $40K+. I can build alot of xr's for that coin!

Had a customer lose 5 mph in a single with it.He went back to his Imco sc.They are probably good on a cat with a high X dimension.
