Noooooo...


Pathetic in how we were "called" on our running of the One-Way's. And in the fact that it basically killed your night of racing.

I wasn't calling you pathetic.

Hey Guys,

Been runnning nitro cars for a while but never had an interest in electiic... that is until i met the MO3. (I have owned 1:1 for 20+ years so mini lovers can understand where I am comming from)

I recently bought a MO3, and as can be expected I am in the process of doing some upgrades.

Can you guys give me some feed back on the following ?

What's the best method to use to break in a new motor ?

Do I need to breakin the RS-540 sport tuned motor ?

Additionally i am thinking about further up grades to the motor and ESC. TCS legal is not an issue. What I need is a setup to take this car to the limit without constantly breaking the internals or encountering stablility problems. Would the Novak GTB/Velociti Racing Brushless System 4.5 be an overkill ? A friend who races electrics at our local track advises against going beyond a 7.5T or 9T brushless with this car. Whats your take on this ?.

I have already done all the suspension,bearing, hub carriers (Fr & Rear), wheels ,(using foams) universals,upgrades suggested and am about to install the rs-540 motor and steel pinions. What I have left to do are the rest of the electronics, the ball diff and would like to go for a hotter motor and ESC setup.

HotRod, its a lot of conversion the car is virtually reduced to a shell and would be nowhere near road legal. Unless you are a mini freak and really have a burning desire to do this, its not worth the effort.

If you are really looking for a neat conversion, Try the Toyota 4AG transverse turbocharged. For me I have stuck with the A+ series 1480cc normally aspirated.
What can I say, I'm an old school guy.
