YES, they did a re-release of the civic, it now comes with head/tail light buckets.

Why do you have the oil cooler stuck in the back by the firewall? Wouldn't it be better mounted up front by the radiator?

Try Zippy or Turnigy LiPos from Hobbycity/Hobbyking. Very good batteries at very low prices.

Default Mushroom Bowl

For any of you racers that live in the DE, PA, NJ, or MD area. We have a great cup racer program at the Mushroom Bowl in Kennet Square, PA.

As of now we only run the cars stock with the exception of the threaded shocks, sway bars and tire additive.

Electronics wise any esc, battery and servo goes. We have handout motors dyno'd within 100 or 200 rpm's of each other.

But if you guys can round up 4 people you can run your own open Cup Class.

For all the rules and details visit http://www.mushroombowl.com

Thanks for the info, I was looking at some Zippy batteries.. the one I want was out of stock.


Which Lipo battery charger is the best bang for the buck?

This is odd, I can't seem to find a pic of it on the HPI site. It is on page 20 of the March 2010 Xtreme RC Cars magazine in the "Inside Line" column.

Actually if you live in the US, try www.hobbypartz.com.. the have similar prices as Hobbycity/Hobbyking but you don't have to pay the freight!

Don't let the name fool you, Orion and Losi have a private labelled version of it for twice the price.

The 4 core rad and elec. fan keeps it cool enough on the street. I run a duct to the oil cooler on track days. It also keeps it away from rocks and debris.
