We wouldn't run an inferior product, bottom line. This speedo is just as good as anything out there or better from what I can tell after a week of running it.

Maybe they're just hoping to upgrade to the new v1.1 ESC from SP? I mean, 3 months on the market is an eternity, right?

If I've learned anything in this hobby, it's that there's some companies I love to support, and some I would run if they were free.

I was thinking the exact thing. Maybe they just want the 1.1's?

LOL. No, we're not after 1.1s.

We made our choice to support Losi, which is an easy one since we've already been running for them for over a year now.

Hence no need for SP stuff anymore.

Hey guys, which of the many millions of ace setups would be best for a low grip, outdoor tarmac track?

Got a wide variey of tyres to choose from for the series so thats not really an issue.

Cheers.

For those with SMC Lipos. I just ran the 4000 and 5000 this weekend at the Region 5 champs and while I have no complaints on the batteries at all, I do have to retract an earlier post and say that they do not fit in the Type R. While you can get them in and run the car, the belt will cut through the positive lead insulation and I've found no workaround for it. I noticed this with both my 4000 and 5000. While it only cuts the positive, it cuts a large section right down to the wire. If anyone else has come up with a workaround let me know because I do like the batteries. And I LOVE the Car!

Did you grind the car or the case to get the 5000 to fit?

Can you flip the pack over and run the leads out the right side of the car?

I did not grind either the car or the case. It fits only one way and that is with the battery leads emerging to the front, drivers left. The taper in the case requires that the case be positioned in this way in order to clear the drive pulleys.

Default Rear Diff Question

Need some advise...my rear diff seems to get dirty really fast. It seems to collect a lot of dust. I usually have to rebuild it 2 to 3 times before the front needs any rebuild. Do you guys know if there is anything that can shield the rear diff?

Hi chumanji.
Try this:
1) Apply on side of the pulley, sticker cover of paper (you can buy it or made by your self using the stickers of the foam tires)
2) close the allu. diff. tube with tape or "termoretraibile" (may be shrink tube)
3) close the hole in the diff hub by apply a litle bit of rubber glue
Hope help you
Ciao Ciao

Default Pulley Prob

Bit of a niggling one this.

It seems the large diff balls are enlarging the slot they sit within. I'm guessing this must be some sort of overheating from a slipping diff but to me the diff feels fine.

hmmm.....
