I am picking up one of the DB12RR Lipo cars and was wondering what body would be best for a 17.5 motor? I will be racing on carpet?

SMC just announced that they have two new packs coming out. One is same case as now but with 40c and deans. The other is a same outside size case but flat, no bumps, and 4mm tubes. I know what package im running next season.

DB12RR lipo
SMC 40c with 4mm
Tekin RX(maybe pro) speedo
Trinity duo motor
KO 949 digi servo

Now I just need that big job to come in so I can get overtime and pay for all this stuff. LOL.

To run the servo flat you will need medium ballstuds for the spindles

I want to see what the new weight limit is first. As of now, the 10R is grossly underweight. You can run the lipo in the weighted tray and that may be the route i take. If the car becomes close to weight without the tray and just the lipo, i wqill revamp the chassis to accomodate.

The standard 4 cell setup was a very good starting point for us. I am going to update the setups as we find better ones.
