I guess you guys got your meeting next month, I'll be up for that.

Although my evo3 is in rebuild shop right now as I have had so many problems with it...... thankfully the M2 is still working well.

i only things i dont like about m2 is that you can almost only use 64 pitch, using tape for the batts, and tamiya doesnt make upgrades for it any more

other than that i love it.

i've been racing for 1 year and its the first car i got. im glad i chose this one!

I use HPI, Kimborough and Schumacher 48dp spurs on mine, I also use Ho Bao velcro battery straps.
And with the new lightweight blue bits, and the SSG bits it now looks as good as it goes !!!

I've never used tape for the batts ! I have always used schumacher battery holders instead, and it rocks !

yup 6.2 is crazy low, but if you dont go that low the competition wil blow you off, everyone over gears their monster over here so i simpy have to go with the flow, as to indoor carpet tracks, we used to have one, it was really tight and had a very short straight so what we did was gear our monsters to around 6.9 and it rocked.

i also tried velcro before, but the batteries would fall off in the event of a crash so what i did was install the xray batt holders.

Try KS Racing velcro, it hold tighly and your battery will not fell off on crash (at least a crash with broken A arms). Stay away from that Speedmind velcro as they are just a piece of junk.

That SSG will make other different beside more centered battery... more self convidence

Anyone have news on TCS in Singapore next year?

what im thinking of is a bendable zip tie ha ha

ziiiipppppppppp and your done and ready to race
the reason i want bendable is it tends to scoop very low. so it scrapes the ground

PYRAMID: yup ur right, i tried the speedmind velcro and they were glued together so when i pulled one side to tighten it, and what do you know, the velcro was slit in two.

CALVIN: u need to dremel a very small portio in the slot where you usually slip the tape, ever since i tried it i've had peace of mind that my bats dont drop (i mean literally) to the track

Guys, I've got a box stock 414M2 and I love it. However, it's a little heavy. I'm running a Novak BL and 3300's and I'm about 1576 grams. What's the best way to shave some weight off this car?
