Yeah, I think this 3 diff wheeler would be the perfect home for the pro2.

If you're new to the wheeler class, then 9.5/10.5 is a good place to start. Just enough motor to not bore the hell out of you.

I really like the 6.5 in my 4wd buggy but the fast guys at the local indoor clay track (medium sized only!) are running 6.5 turn in SCT, Stadium Truck, and buggy. Of course we have some jumps you HAVE to have lots of motor to clear or you'll be slow. Sigh.

This is what I was planning. I have a 7.5t ready and a new Novak Pulse ESC which has a significant amount of boost configuration capability.

Would one of the clear stick on chassis covers help the CF chassis live? I have never owned a car with a CF chassis, just wondering.

Yes. It is fine. That's what I run on my B44.2.

Yes. I've been running them on B44s for 3 years without issue.

Yeah, I have used 2 since the B44.2 came out but I only drive it on indoor tracks. You will go through protectors much faster if you run outdoor quick usually has pebbles/rocks in the dirt.
If you do run on a track that tears up protectors quickly. Something like this would be good to get. http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B004VG...-2147483554-20

I used the 3m auto clear bra stuff on my eb48.2 and it was torn up after one practice day lol. My local track is fairly rocky though. I was hoping the rc chassis protectors are stronger

If the 8mil doesn't live long, maybe a 14mil? I haven't had to mess with it running on a smooth indoor track.

The traction along with big motors caused most other cars to break at some point at the Worlds (but the D413 held up fine). Installing a Tekin hd 4300, and putting it in the hands of someone other than Ty seems like it would be good durability testing
I was just joking about pulling the 4300 out of my sct410, it's a ton of power for an sct, would nuts in a little buggy. Unfortunately don't have the skills of Tessman so I'll be shopping for milder setup. Our indoor track is about 70'x30' so I don't need a ton of power. Thanks for the info! I guess all the dumb questions have been ask and answered over and over so I'll patiently wait until they are ready for sale. OH Santa send me a ET48 too please! I only race Tekno and Hot Bodies so I'm deserving! LOL
