Adrian or anyone who has the Core RC Lipo installed...

Can you post a pic of your car?

I forget...Is there a particular steering linkage setup you have to use or is it a direct fit?

Adam/Shawn

Do you know offhand if that adapter/plug is a direct fit for the FMA Direct Cell Pro Charger...

I found and saved Adrian's previously posted pic. Sorry I was referring to the balance plug.

Sorry I'm not that familiar with Lipo's but a good number of guys around here use the FMA CellPro 4s with success.

I was able to finally run the Mi3 with a Novak 13.5 and a Lipo pack. Even without truly balancing the car right to left the car was on rails....asphalt rubber tires.

Well guys I run my MI3 today for the second time. Manage to finish 1st on the first 2 heats on the expert stock and 19T runnng brushless with 5 cells car is on rail. But I did not finish due to broken parts that I don't have "spare blades"

Anybody tried to shrink wrap the blades???? I thought about of doing before the race but I got too lazy. by not doing it cause me not to finish the race and not to mention there is $500 at stakes. We are on our point series race at my local club were one of the big car dealership in my area sponsored the race.

sorry about your luck, but the car dealership thing is great. years ago i suggested that we start a "dealership" series. car dealers love gags, why not have your local club setup the track at a different local dealership on the weekends, and use that dealers type of car for a spec body. great exposer for the hobby/sport and it gets the looky loos on the lot. it sounds like maybe you have something different going on tho.

So its almost 5:30am here, been up since my last post putting the finishing touches on my IIC cars, got a nice cell phone pic for now, but my girlfriend is coming by in the morning so I'll snap some with her camera and post some detailed shots of the rides.

Good work on the paint Ray... how about going by "Pound It Paints"
