TORQUE!! Review by LG
Rating
LG: Thank you for such detail in your review. Modelers will appreciate your comments. Happy New Year. HP

Car has plenty of torque... it will rip the grass off at the park for 2-4ft under hard acceleration. Clocked it at 46.1mph on 4s 5000mAh 40C without the wing, with wing it does about 44.3mph. Although slower than my Slash 4x4, this thing is still fun. Slash does 71mph but really unstable because of its weight the RAIL would probably not have that problem since it's over 7 lbs.

Hit a curb at 20mph with the RAIL and no damage other than some minor scratches.

One thing I did was to put a piece of Velcro, wrapping the fan and signal wires between the ESC and rollcage as the body scrapes them and could eventually cut in insulation.

I will adjust ESC to increase the LVC as it is set to 3.0v which may reduce the life of the Lipo,another adjustment I will do is to decrease the amount of initial power (torque) just one setting hope it helps reliablity.

Cant decide on rating 4 vs 5 stars. If this was 50+mph definately 5 stars, but does it deserve 4 just for that? No. I will just try to play with gearing 46mph is good enough...FOR NOW.

Forgot to mention ESC and Motor stay cool! Highest temp on ESC has been 115F, motor about 100F (Posted on 12/31/10)

Love this rail, I've put it to the test Review by Dan
Rating
I've run the daylights out of this rail, no problems other than a few normal breaks from crashes. Over the years I've owned many RC cars, trucks, buggies and this is my favorite. My only minor complaint is the ESC isn't very smooth when starting from a stop. Check out this link to see a youtube video of this beast in the air. It really flies.

great looking, just some bugs to iron out Review by dirtlover62

I have been running the rail for about a week now, this vehicle has not flipped over once yet. has great speed, and i like the program "Card". Only problem now is Reverse-It cogs real bad when i need to go in reverse. Had to send the ESC back To customer service for testing/replacement. Parts are not available at my local hobby shop, but i still see real potential in this vehicle and believe it will become very popular soon. (Posted on 11/23/10)
Fast and Strong Review by Davis

I've had my rail for 3 weeks. It is faster than my T4 and the only thing that looks as good is a Baja. I am running a 4s 5000. I am looking for others who have a Rail, as Id like to race. I'm in Fountain Valley. Rock on. (Posted on 11/13/10)
Down right fun Review by Krikor
Rating
This is the first RC Car/Buggy I have ever had and hesitated initially due to price, but worth every penny. What makes it even better is the staff support. A toy is only as good as it runs. This thing can run. Fast, strong and amazing fun. I am trying to convince a friend of mine to get it. He's on the fence, just needs a little nudge. If you want to have fun with an RC Buggy, this is your thing!!! (Posted on 10/25/10)

I've had mine for 10 days. Bought in Murrieta and your guys were most helpful, helped me set up and I upgraded to lipo pack. I am running at a school and it draws attention. More fun than any buggy Ive had. (Posted on 10/18/10)
