just wanted to warn anyone considering buying the new sparklers, they do not have a speed boost. Although the description clearly states the speed is 4 - 5, it should read 3. And yes, I am aware this is probably a support issue, I'm posting here so hopefully more people will see it.
I'm very sorry, I spoke too soon.
I took the sparklers out again, and even though my avi only does a slow jog, it moves farther with every step than the default "run"; it kinda looks like it's moving in slow motion. If anyone would like a preview, please message me via xmb.
