Tamiya 417FF First test

Everything worked without any problems. The handling is good and the XV-01 gearbox is very silent. It seems the car will have less front tyre wear than the Huge FF-11 but more testing is needed to get a better understanding of it. It has a lot of steering and is very responsive because of the TRF417 steering system. I think the car worked better than expected and feels quite a lot different compared to a Huge FF-11.
