if your name was not on the list above and/or you haven't received a PM from me regarding the suspension upgrade - shoot me a PM.

Right now it looks like we have every set accouted for, but i might have some of the upper camber mounts available. NO MORE BENT CAMBER MOUNTS!!!!

I just don't have the upgrade in my possession, so until i get them from Larry, i won't know exactly what i have.

Cost for the entire set is still going to be around the $100 mark + shipping - it just depends on the cost of the anodizing. (Don't worry JB - they will get out to you asap all silver and shiney )

Hey Guys. Still running the MI2 for now. Anyone got a handle on a tray for LiPos that can bolt on to the chassis (realize I may have to drill a hole or two). I am currrently taping the battery in place, but would rather have a tray with a top strap.

Thanks in advance for any ideas.

Mark

cheers

People clean those things? I've got motors I've had for a couple of years now and they've need no maintenance.

Does it smell really bad?


You said in the other thread that you have it geared the same way as a CO27......well let me be the first to tell you STOP!

just like over-gearing can hurt your motor, under-gearing can do the same thing.


If thats a 10.5, your looking at a FDR of about 5.2, I'm sure someone else can help you with something better than that cause i don't run 10.5.

13.5 should have a FDR of about 4.9-4.3 depending on track conditions.

17.5 should be 4.0-3.4 FDR for best performance, obviously conditions permitting.



Finally here is the one and only rule I've learned about brushless...

"WHAT EVER YOU THINK YOU KNOW ABOUT MOTORS YOU NEED TO RELEARN"
