Sweet A** 510! -Very nice job.

Hey, ...did your tires come w/ white lettering? (Mine did not -Porsche Kit). And I haven't seen them for sale w/ white raised lettering?

Mike from Exotek, -love your products! ...I plan on getting a chasis for my 1/18th Associated 18R if my wife doesn't get for me for Christmas! -that's my next project ...tweaking my 18R.
Haha I work at the same hobby shop as the guy above. LOL At least my little joke worked on one person. I am just giving him a hard time. Playing the mind games before the first race tomorrow. I do know though that he put the white lettering on the tires after and they didn't come that way. They are just the stock tires. I am getting a good look at them now, because the only part I will see of his car tomorrow is his rear end when I going to lap him.

I have raced Off Road in the past, but this will be my first On Road race at an actual club. So it should be fun, we have about 4 people in total with the Cup Racers so hopefully in the future if a couple more people buy one we can actually have a full class. As it is now we will be running in an open class, which is where anything you can imagine runs in the class.

Also to add about my friend above. His Cup Racer is actually very nice looking. I only wish I had the skill and patience to do what he can with rattle paint cans. LOL I am the master though with one color paint jobs.....

Look at you all full of yourself. Let the racing be the judge. I'm sure you already have been sneaking into carpeted areas testing the car you little rat. I'm driving blind and looking forward to a good laugh tomorrow. I have 2 tiny key chain cams so we should both mount one up and see who is looking at who's bumper more. Oh i forgot your running all hoped up with a brushless and me on a 30t.

Haha yea but I am running a 17.5 on 6 cell Nimh. Against a 30T Brushed on Lipo. So any advantage I had with the brushless is gone with less punch and more weight. LOL oh I will admit, your nice little body won't look to good with my bump to pass game plan. HAHA watch out, I may bring out the $9 HPI Uranus motor.

Just use Testors flat white and dab it on with a blunt brush. I did a messy job and should have took the time to trace the letters right and clean.

My friend wolffcub is such a professional racer. I know I don't stand a chance on the track with him no matter what mods I do to my car. I will always be in his wake of awesomeness.

Nice of you to say. Feels good telling the truth huh?

What seems to be the oil weight of choice in this car for the front?

How do these two compare?

thanks
The Novak 13,5 motor is rated at 3300Kv. I think this is better suited for the car than the Sidewinder. I'm running a 17.5 with a ramped esc and it's plenty fast.

As for the batteries, I could not get the stick pack shaped ones to fit right, though I remember the plug type ones fit better than the ones with the wires pre-attached. The brick shaped packs that you tape in work better. The Exotek chassis solved all the battery problems.
I would get the higher C rating that's within your budget. The rating with the capacity tells you how much power (amps) the battery can put out.

Ex. 5000MAh battery @ 20C is 5AH x 20 = 100Amps

Ex. 5000MAh battery @ 30C is 5AH x 30 = 150Amps
