Sorry I'm dyslexic. I meant GPM. Where did you see them because when I searched them a while ago the wheels where discontinued. And they still are discontinued.

I just received my brushless ESC and motor combo for my M04. I purchased a 45A ESC and a 2230KV motor. I will try to set it up as soon as I can and post a run down on it. If I like it I might set up my M03M and M03 chassis with this set up.

The ESC is an motor aeolian 45A and the motor is a Tacon. I got both for about sixty dollars. A friend of mine has this same set up and it runs great for him and since this is my first brushless taste I didn't wanna go and spend a lot of money. I know there are a lot better ESC's and motors out there but this fit into my budget right now. I didn't want to much speed just enough to make the car go.

Default m05 pro clear plastic shocks

Hi there
m05 pro clear plastic shocks. Everyone says they are to weak & not even worth taking out of the bag.

What if I just used the body, & used the stronger parts off my other CVA shocks(shock body is longer)??
would this give me the much shorter shock length(to lower ride height) & retain the strength of 'normal' shocks?

Note it's the body that's shattered....

I was surprised to see 3 Alfa Romeo Mito's last Saturday as it was only recently sold in our local hobby shop.



More info and photos:
http://www.rccartips.com/alfa-romeo-mito-rc-cars.htm

Finally the Mini Cooper S has a challenger in the long wheelbase setup.



More photos and review.

But most important is that my 9 year old daughter loves this car.

Are the clear blue shocks really that brittle, or just if your running something hotter than a silver can?
