Hey Schreff, I haven't tried the Ener-G cells yet but I prefer the EP4600's What does Tag carry?

I think Tags tries to get his hands on whatever is reliable. I know he's currently waiting for a case of Ener-G cells. I certainly hope he gets them or I'm gonna be borrowing stuff for the Classic. I've had nothing but great luck with the Ener-G stuff, so I plan to stick with that until Lipo truly takes over in 12th scale.

Hey there guys. Does anyone know if 16 gauge would be sufficient to run to the motor instead of 14 gauge? Any help would be awesome! Should I use 14 ga?

I found out the 16awg that I have been using has some rather thick insulation so I plan to redo my under the battery wiring again with better wire. I also would like to change my sensor wire because the LRP one is so stiff it might as well be solid. What sensor wire is that that JayBee used with the braided cover? That looks like a great design.

Waiting for the unvailing of the new parts

Craig I thought you were running 3 gold shims per side on the axle? I can say this set-up is dialed! I ran my car to 6th after a terrible start... I.E Hacking myself on the first turn and having 7th and 8th place ram the back of my car... then still on the first lap hitting a flapper and flying off the track.

I can say the Speed 12 is much better then the Speed 8. The Speed 8 feels like you are gliding through air with no resistance, but it won't steer. The Speed 12 is so much more reactive. The Speed 8 HD seems to be all down force in the rear so it is super planted. For some reason the Speed 12 is perfect because it has the perfect balance of front and rear down force to free up the rear just enough. Also I can't wait to try the Corals. From what I hear from you and Mike Haynes they should be perfect.

Jason, I also let 360's manager, Dave Grabowski try the car and he was amazed. He said it had so much steering compared to other cars. So over all the car is good... I just need more practice with it because the set-up I was running felt like a TC and nothing like a 1/12th until Craig helped me. Oh and Craig, thanks for picking up the flex plates and Linear springs for me. If you haven't tried them... YOU SHOULD. The car steers like an animal with them and the whole day they didn't collapse.
