Well it’s time for racing! I have just set up my new hot red F40 from Policar. I am really impressed with the new stock sidewinder setup.
This car’s performance is smooth and fast with a few tweaks. I run mostly without magnets, so weight placement and a good set of rubber tires is all you need for a great result.
