    TSM and OBA

    Any news as to whether a version with TSM and OBA will be released in the near future? I figure it just a matter of time, aiming the purchase

    Thanks,
    Raz

    that's what I would like to see also plus it would be nice if they come out with a pro stock dragster and top fuel seeing that traxxas is a major sponsor for the nhra

    what use for TSM could you have going straight on road??? its designed to help new comers with cornering and extremely rugged conditions so they dont get frustrated at their driving skill level.

    the OBA i can see for the sound effects, but you can get that just by installing a real engine lol

    Wrong. It can help the newbie off-roader, but it's EXACT use is for holding a straighter line, bumpy or not. It's a gryo which the Funny Car is in absolute need of.

    Also, you could try squeezing a fueled power plant, but I'm rather sure you'll never be capable of replicating scale sound

    Bottom line...TSM is the most needed piece of equipment here, On boar sound would be a nice addition..

    does it not drive straight becasue of traction or somthing else?

    becasue Its not throttle management, if thats your issue you can change your settings in your telemetry so it doesn't drop 100% at an instant. Lower it to 60% throttle response so it doesn't overload the tires to the point they lose traction.

    the sound isnt "scale" by FAR, but it DOES sound better than a bee on a... "foreign" substance.... lol

    Of course anyone can try, but holding a straight line can depend on several factors, SOME of which can be mitigated with settings. See you at the finish line

    I'm there already *L*... For those wanting to explore the advantages of gyro stability, TSM isn't the only option. However, I would very much like to see a rereleased version with TSM with on board audio

    i have used the spektrum avc and it made a huge difference. While i could get the occasional 2.10's pass with out it i run 2.0's-2.10s every pass now. I am actually just gonna put the 2s back in and let my niece race it while i run the drag race concepts car. If i had a good series to run like the west coast with the rcdrl i would leave the stock radio and tires on it.
