Why so fixated on the top speed? If you're racing on a track you should be more concerned with how it puts the power down.

If you're after a huge top speed, this will be a let down for sure. It's meant as an intro racing car, not a basher capable of 100mph.

I was just wondering about the new car. Im not interested in it or if it go's 100 mph. lol. If it just go's 35mph however that would suck.

Associated has quality stuff I have liked all the kits I had from them. $250. for the whole kit and caboodle. Is pretty good for an entry level on road racing.

It's meant for track racing, not top speed, you'll never hit 50mph on most touring car tracks and acceleration/handling are much more important.

Associated does make quality products, but this Apex sedan isn't one of them. This is an Asian made chassis that AE is re-packaging and marketing as a RTR Team Associated product likely to replace the aging TC4 Club Racer kit they've been dumping on the market for the last while.

What do you mean by double checking?

As for upgrading, get some wheel time and then see for your needs what things you would like changed.
