as far as the plastic shock bodies, from what I saw on the MCD threads that was the hot ticket.

any one know what the KV of the motor is? Debating on whether to wait for a roller and use my MMM 2200 or if that motor would be too small or too high kv. 4400g equates to about 9.7 lbs. Seems like my 8ight-t is lighter with no lipos...

I looked on a few sites but no info concerning the Kv of the motor.

I did get an email from nitrohouse about it coming in soon.

nice. Don't recall but do you know the dimensions of the motor as well as what you see as the max motor dimensions that can fit in the vehicle as far as length goes?

These measurements with calipers while everything is mounted in the car so they might be slightly off. Motor diameter is 44mm length is 67mm and there is just over 105mm from the front of the motor to the chassis.

Interesting on the motor length as if correct that is like the length of castles 1/8 buggy motor and shorter than the Tekin buggy motors.

If that is correct and orion can push that buggy without issues with that can size, I wouldn't be surprised the castle 1515 2200 Kv motor would be as up to the task as the Orion one.

I got to drive it with a 3S pack around the street and it seems like it will be a blast to drive. Once I get the ESC moved over to XT60 connectors I will test it on a 4S pack. Here are some size pictures.
