I took the griffin pro out for the first time today and wow ! What a surprising car ! I thought it would handle poorly like a sand viper or a madcap or something and be tail happy and all over the place but I was totaly mistaken. It is a real compétition car which is very well balanced, jumps near to perfection (jumps flat no nose diving) lands perfectly an is extremly composed. With the 12t orbital it flies !!! The pro shocks are really smooth and the slipper seems to work well. It is much more like my schumacher fireblade evo and fireblade usa and that s saying something !!! So I m well pleased and most of all well surprised. Academy products now have my respect.
