I picked this up yesterday. I just couldn't pass it up. Before I even left the store I had picked up a couple things and had some ideas too.

First thing was to get the COG lower. I just didn't see the point in running the nimh pack when a 2s lipo was so cheap and fit so well so I picked up a couple Hyperion 120mah packs.

Then I started looking into moving around the esc/rx combo thing and wasn't having any luck and I remembered that I had a Tekin B1R and a Spektrum Micro receiver in the drawer so those went in. They take up about the same amount of space but because they are separate they fit a lot better. I mounted the B1R on the servo and the rx fit inside the chassis after I got rid of the extra plastic junk.

Then I took some lead weight and after cutting and smashing with pliers found that I could fit about 1/2 oz on each front wheel.

All of these things really made a huge difference in the performance. My next step will be to make a chassis. I'm planning on making one out of styrene and kind of copying what Harley did on his. I really want the stance lower.

Overall it's a fun little rig. I picked up the little cardboard rock thing with it and just that alone has been enough fun for a couple of packs."thumbsup"

Nice start! Isn't it great to have a new size to wrench on?:twisted:

How does that tekin fit under the body?

The tekin is tight but it fits. I had to put the capacitor on the other side than where I had it but after that no problem.

Nice, So are you going to bump it up to 3 cell:twisted:?

Nah, it's plenty fast as it. Might be fun just to try though. I haven't gotten to use it much though. My kids are always wanting to use it.

Yep, I've been having a blast with it. I still haven't had time for the new chassis but that might be a little while still. I have other stuff to get done.

How long of runtime are you getting with your setup?

Seem like a solid 20-30 minutes at least. Compared to stock it's way smoother and a lot more speed.
