Yes the car did free up. Total of three batteries. One thing I noticed so far with stock setup, the front end seems really stiff still. Maybe too thick of oil (37.5). Or I think its the pistons in front. Wonder how it would feel if I put 1.5's in the front replacing the 1.4's

I BOUGHT A USED 8.2 AFTER I SOLD MY LAST8TH.THEN THE E CAME OUT. MY WIFE SAID FOR ME TO BUY IT BECAUSE ID BE THE ONLY ONE AT OUR TRACK WITH IT,BUT WE HAVE 4 RACES LEFT IN OUR SEASON. THE CLOSEST INDOOR TRACK IS 150MILES AWAY. SO I MAY JUST WAIT TILL NEXT YEAR TO GET IT.I WANT IT ON MY SHELF ANF TO BUILD IT. YOUR TRACK IS ABOUT 4HRS FROM ME BUT WE HAVE BEEN THERE A COUPLE TIME. WE TALKED ABOUT GOING THIS WINTER.

Do you guys think the E car is a worthy upgrade from my 3.0 nitro converted?

in my opinion you would have less weight,and a diff handling because of the diff battery tray.. I don't have one yet but that's what I was considering.the clips are the same except the towers.

Hey Brian I just did this. U will find a significant difference between the two handling wise. The nitro version felt old and heavy compared to this new car. Love the old car but this one is the frosting on the cake. Very worth it

AverageNoob... Did the kit come with those yellow sealed bearings? Or did you install the Avids when you built it? You build looks good BTW.
