I saw the Peter Gabriel "Back to Front" concert last night in the theater (we saw him live a couple years back in Santa Barbara). When he played "Shock the Monkey" I thought of you.

And I apologize for not being clear - what are the target starting ride heights for asphalt?

Hi guys,I really want to know where I can buy that Led light panel from.
Apparently that diffuser is out of stock everywhere and on banzai site it said the panel is not a part of the diffuser.
Anyone know where I could find that panel ?
Thanks

For asphalt, about 4.5-5.0 depending on if track is smooth or bumpy. If real smooth. as low as 4.0 but I don't think you can get the TRF 101 that low.

Found another Panda shirt I ordered for the races. Appropriate for the RC track.

Hi folks.
Could someone help me choose a battery for my F113?! I'm new to this class and have no idea about a good relationship between power/weight.

My Motor/Esc setup is Speed Passion Reventon + 17.5T sensored motor

I was thinking about use 2200mAh 2S nanotechs (~120 grams) for heats of 6-7 min.

Is 2200mAh enough?

Use a shorty.
Most are 4000mah and up and with the shorty you have the weight on the rear or can move the battry for perfect weight balance.

Regards Roy

The TRF101W is only 190mm wide, built to the maximum width of the narrow class rules.

That's a diecast, not a RC Car but if you want to do that body with paintlab's decals the closest body is Tamiya F104 Body (51377)

Nice job on that Lotus! I sent you an email requesting to know where you purchased the unique brushless motor with built-in esc.

We in Dirtville have a perfectly serviceable racetrack sprayed with a couple gallons of fruit punch concentrate.. Except for the dirt field that blows on it most of the time. And the slurry coat that comes off as we run on it.

My 101 is strapped, ready to do work, for about a lap and a half till the dust buildup starts. Tried buggy grip, tweek, lg2, paragon, fx2, wd40, and even tried simple green which last about five laps before the grit adheres to the tires and the spins just start coming.

Any suggestions? Most are running 571/572, but nobody is great.
