Take if from me, I've had history with those pulley fences and past Schumacher kits. DON'T put them on the other way. They have to go on as specified. I put them on backwards with my Mission way back in the day, and it cost me about 3 rear belts before I figured out what was wrong!

Its easy to do and barely noticable---but best of all, no need to get rid of the 4800 or trade for the 3200...
Excellent work on this. Good to know that my 4800 isn't useless until the new steering link comes out!

The Core 5000mah LiPo is a new product we are testing. It will sell for the same price as the Orion 4800. The Core 5000 is a 2s1p pack (2 5000 cell in series. The Orion is 2 pairs of 2400 cells in parallel then connected in series to make a 2s2p 4800 battery. The Core 5000 will have a lower internal resistance and better curretn delivery capacity.

We should have them in about 4 weeks.

I also ran the new Core Racing 5000 LiPo pack. I was just as fast as anyone there and just kept repeaking the pack for every run. FYI, I used only 2200mah in a 5 min 19T run.

your car did run awesome today bro.i really liked how the car felt.

Still might have to run a lipo receiver pack and regulator. I have the room but will have to really take my time with the wiring then.

If I only ran pan cars I would have tons of room on the 1/10th oval cars.

Everyones MI3's look great. Just went over some final adjustments on where I want to start. Everything has been gone over but will be double and triple checked on MOn and Tues to make sure I'm 100% ready for Wed practice.

I ran an LRP Sphere Comp 07' and used the LiPo battery mode. This cuts off the power to the motor when you hit the minimum safe voltage (6v).
