question, when i run brushless with 5 cell, the car is amazing, i don't add weight to make up for the missing cell or imbalance of the chassis. when running lipo, if not mandated by the track why would you add weight. is it that much of difference that if effect handling in a different way? thanks in advance

Its hard to see in the pics, but theres actually not anything near any of the aluminum to short. The positive lead looks close in the pics, but its actually quite far under the bulkhead. And it can't move up because the wire is squeezed slightly under the bulkhead, so the wire can't move at all. The picture makes it look MUCH closer than it actually is. But I couldn't think of a better angle to shoot from.

Believe me, I went over it with a fine tooth comb. I spend almost as much time wiring as I do building my cars(and unfortunately...I'm not exaggerating ), so once I settle on a layout, you can be sure that everything is safe.

Hey, I think I found it...for once I had some luck with the SchuUSA search engine.



Part#G315

So hopefully next time I take a pic of my Mi3, I'll have the proper towel so that Randy will be a little more at ease.

1. I thought I saw some IIC pics and guys had red Schumacher pit towels? I know about the blue but is there a red?

2. Running a spool...if the back end is a bit loose midcorner then on power what would you change. I realize you don't have the full setup but just wondering what some of you might do.


Ran the car finally on carpet w/spool, 13.5 BL, rubbers tires. It's super smooth but wanders out a little when driving hard midcorner. It was fast and in the main I had the fastest lap. Just want to clean up the midcorner drifting...

Thanks in advance.
