Time for an extra fan. Was it the motor or the ESC?

All I have to say is this car is awesome. Coming from a b44.2 that broke constantly I have no complaints. It can be drove harder with confidence and I'm not even that great of a driver im just glad I can finish qualifiers and mains. Its so nice to not have to wrench on my car after every run. The only wrenching I've done is set-up changes which BTW every time I make a change I can tell a difference and most changes are easy ones. I've let several of our local "fast guys" drive the car and every one of them seem to enjoy driving the car because its that much better than their ae, losi, kyosho or xray. I've only stripped 1 spur not because of the car but because my endbell screws got so loose the motor was twisting and stripped the spur after fixing that I've had 4 race nights and 2 practice nights on the new spur and it still looks new. So all these complaints are mute to me BC this car has got to be one of the best electric cars I've owned and I've had a lot.

What set-up would you guys recommend for a 110ftx60ft indoor clay track medium to high bite lets say something like OCRC.

still working on my setup. I put some xring in the shocks and it feels like I dropped 5wt of oil. Now it slaps on a 12in drop. probably going to go up in oils or try the 3x1.4 pistons. using the 4x1.3 now. but 37.5/35 feels too soft

I plan to try 1.6's once there is a manufactured one. I dont want to mess with my shitty drill skills.

trick, yeah, I am thinking about going to 3x1.3 or 42 wt with my current pistons. I had so much stickion with the kit orings. the xrings are nice.

I just finished gluing in the plastic inserts. seems about 20% stiffer to the touch. I am making so many changes this week, my car will probably suck on sunday.

You used the AE X-rings correct? with or without the green slime stuff?

These durango super soft o-rings completely changed the shocks on this car. SO much smoother and free moving with these replacing the stock o-rings. No leaks. I use these in just about all of my cars with 3mm shock shafts.

The blue durango o-rings are even softer, but I haven't tried them yet. I just got some I'm going to try the next time I rebuild my shocks.
