It turned out lookin pretty cool. you should see the detail in it, the silver and black is all skulls and bones!! And then the whole thing has 4 coats of clear. way to much time on my hands, not to mention a few screws left over from the rebuild (......now where did those go!!!) LOL I just wish there was a better way to put pics up, th pic looks awful.

Power supply is working great. Little big though.

Yes, Oakville Ontario. Check out the site FastCats.ca. It's a world class facility (more than just a track)

Replied. Here is a pic of my car for whatever reason. Im using B44 caster blocks, steering blocks, rear arms, rear hubs, and front hexes. The car was also update with the WE steering bellcranks, steering rack, direct shaft kit, and a rear sway bar.

It could be argued that the BJ4 is the upgraded version. I dont think there are any plans to change the WE, its pretty good as is.

The Orion motors are great, you'll be more than satisfied it the speed. I, along with many others use the LRP speedo with their Orion motors. As far as a saddle LiPo, I would wait for someone to release a hard case version.

If I remember right Reedy is going to make a hard case Li-Po, and I think there is another company that will make one as well. Max amps makes a hard case to go over their packs as well, although I am going to wait for the Reedy packs to come out (for my BJ4 worlds that is in my avatar (the other car is a T4)).

I would say maybe a 6.5 would do. I run the 5.5, but it is REALLY fast.. almost too much...
