Yesterday, I had enough time to get this thing going.


All electronics are working perfectly. No smoke what so ever. I really had to narrow down the EPA's from the TX, cause the motors are really making this thing fly.


It's looking much better at the moment than my pro. I only have to clean those receiver wires together, so they will all be in the same spot, without moving too much. Other than that, it's ready to go.

Adding a little bit more blue before it's ready.


It's all there now. Except for soldering the batteries.


Now we'll just have to continue with Sofi's shafty build next.

Smurfette is finally done! I was able to try it today and this time with my own electronics But because of the snow I had to forget the rocks and concentrate my driving on the carage floor... Even though the floor was a bit slippery I could still feel the power of smurfette. Yeah, it flies. Can't wait to get to the rocks!

Sofi started her season in Arctic Special with pro class as well.


The only thing, that would've made the weather perfect would have been the sun. But it was awesome nevertheless.


Driving Smurfette first time with it's own electronics and the Holmes motors.


Terrain was extreme. Icy and snowy rocks.


Sofi on course three. The best course for her all day. Only two reverses.


On first three courses the driving was really good, but on fourth course Sofi didn't make it to the finishing line. Too bad, it would have been close fight with Saku.


Third place for Smurfette. Good thing was, that the rig is working great. There's nothing that we have to change before the next comp in February.


It was already dark when we finished the comp. But awesome day with some top drivers. Good way to start the season!

Next time Smurfette will be in action on February 21st at indoor comp in Lahti, Finland. Already waiting for that of course.

It was the first comp for smurfette with my own electronics. Weather conditions were interesting. I can say that I had some good and some bad performances. Smurfette is amazingly good car to drive because everything works perfectly. I noticed that those motors have a lot of power. Brilliant motors!

Car went smoothly on the snow thanks to the great voodoos! I had few stupid gates but a lot of training with smurfette! All in all it was a fun race. After this artic special I'm really looking forward to our INDOOR competition

I'm glad you like the motor, I'm particularly fond of the Puller 400s in little shafties. There is plenty of room to go slower if you ever want less power
