last saturday, i could raced it, i had excellent result, the minor upgrade i made was an excellent choice but the rear axle pop off, i had to replace several time.. i Wonder if is a weakness of the chassis or of this specific model??? Is there anyone else had the same thing? for temporary i glued the axle bushing to the chassis, i know Carrera do not sell chassis only...

Sylvain -
We actually ran a proxy with these cars Carreraslots.com VW Kafer Painters Fun Run and through all the racing, I don't remember there being a bushing pop issue - but I also think that everyone had glued their bushings in to insure that they stood up to the rigors of participating in a multi-track proxy series.
They DEFINITELY make for a fun running car and while I am not sure how they are with silicone tires, I found that with urethane tires, they had a great "neutral" balance to them. :)
Hope you have as much fun with your car as we had with the ones in the proxy!
