Couple questions...

First of all now that you can't get the 4600 SMC packs what are the best stock battery's for the money? Orion 4500's? Right now I am running some 4100 Reedy's and I love them but I bought them used (were only a couple weeks old or so) and I've had them for prob 4 months and while they are prob the best battery's on the market they are just to damn expensive so I am thinking about picking up another fresh battery and use the Reedys as practice packs.

Second for those running the D4 SS (1S) what have you found gearing and timing wise to be its sweet spot. I am running 69/32 and 50*s of timing (while 58* was way faster it got to hot) but I have found this motor to be strange and takes a diff gearing and timing combination.

Thanks!

Killshot based Apex2

Cpt.A pulled it from his TC, so I'm sure it was thrashed hard before he sent it to me j/k. It honestly wasn't far off from the newer short stack based motors.

The battery game in the AZ area is a must for stock, unfortunately.

Has anyone tried the Schelle D arm mount? It looks interesting but says something about possibly requiring a different hinge pin? Or is that only for pulling hinge pins out the rear?

If you can find them the turnigy ultimates are great for the money. The lectron 100c is good too. I get 10 mins from either running mod.

reedy are not great packs for stock. Chances are, you are just used to worse packs. Drop them on an IR checker and you will see. Keep in mine, Reedy is not into the "stock game". Locals have tested a lot of batteries. The orions were deemed to be turns. Started off great and quickly faded away. So far, the 6+ month old Trinity 100c packs are holding a low IR. But you will pay for that. The turnigy ultimate's are ok for the budget racer and so it the vant stuff from dirt cheap RC.

thats my guess. u can run stock pins but to do the rear pull feature needs their longer pins. if the stock pins didnt work i dont see why they would have the d mount for sale

It depends on your car really, it transfers weight differently, I think it transfers less to the rear wheels, so in theory you'd want that on high bite, but it might also be useful if your car was pushy in general.

That was my thought process, but it sounded like they could possibly only work with Schelle ones. I think I'll give it try then

You seriously underestimate the correlation of Bling to Speed ratio.... 2 parts bling = 1 part speed = a bajillion parts cool
