Im getting my first electric 1:8 onroad next week.
It will be this erazor, latest model from edam racing.
I know its not necessarily the most competitive car but
hopefully sufficient for running on track and occasional
racing. Ive been learning 1:8 e-buggy and im quite excited
to try out the track, too.
I wont be having any spares, other than i can get from
local mugen guys, hope edam stays together my first few
track sessions

Not too bad at all!
Hope to run some tests tomorrow. Have all the gear but I need to cut and trim the Lola body first.

OK with me! (posting more pics)

I saw this car in a shop window recently. Interested to see how you go.
I have the little brother - ESpirit that I have put wide foams and Lola body.

Question - shop owner said it was 2 speed, looks like yours is single speed?

Yeah, absolutely single speed with the stock e-model like mine above. Cheers

Tested on the street, felt really good!

1950kv plenty fast, also got 2300kv if the power isn't enough on track.

Hi, just came from track - yes very decent at least!

Very nice car to drive, very!!

I will test 6S as our main straight is long, other
sections felt really good with 19T, 2300kv and 4S

I hope to be able to test 6S before the season ends here; I installed 180A sensored for that. Will order a couple of 3S batts tomorrow to test!

If you don't have clean bearings, good transmission and a perfect car, trust me when I say this...someone else does.

Any U.S. EDAM dealers? The model is rather new so you could ask?

I have only visited that shop once. Nice people.

edit - that is the 2 speed, 6 cell version...

Also saw the car at RC Pit , Yagoona, Sydney.

Car not on website yet, but they have them. Regular shopper there (so obviously would recommend)

Custom Built MRX5 SRC Conversion
A solid front & rear axle seems to be the best setup to handle all the power

You mean spool instead of regular one-way in front ?

4S or 6S ?
