Holy crap, the price is even lower now, I paid $51 for it a little over a month ago.
That is pretty small. Nice!!! How did you mount it?

Sweet. I am ordering these ASAP and will have them on the website shortly. I gotta catch up on all these products for our cars and get this stuff on the site!

4S 10000MAH 20C Maxamps. I start charging it 2 days before the race at 1 amp and I can get 12000MAH into it. I use it for all three quals. Its the battery I am using in the video.

In the main I run what everyone calls my "cheater" battery, which is a 4S 6500MAH 150C MaxAmps Race, I can go 14 minutes before cutoff

Cheater Battery Thats battery turns that car into a little rocket. Just a few days ago he was saying that it was time to up the speed on his car. I think he is going to use a plutonium power cell

Would you be opposed to a (3) A mains format of 10 minutes each race to decide our Gt electric portion of the nationals in Texas?

I am also going to be trying some in-car video on my Jammin GT. I want the camera to be looking out the front windshield, so I am going to make a mount that attaches to the center diff (see pic).

The camera I have is the FlyCamOne. Video quality seems OK, but this is an older version. They have a new version that's 720P resolution, so if this works out OK I'll probably get one of those later. One cool thing about the FlyCam is that it has a cable to allow me to control the camera from my TX, and also powers the camera from the RX (the internal battery is tiny, dies too fast). I also like that the lens can pivot so I can lay the camera down flat.

Wow, you gotta get that camera set up to film Kraceway when you get down here!



That'll be sick!

That's cool, drop me a line when you're around.

Better be careful, cause after you see the "Big Kraceway", you'll start calling it a real track...... and you know what that'll mean, lol JK.... Not!

Its a monster, a "bucket list" GT racing destination, for sure!

That is one big track. Whenever I head out to Kissimee again, I'll make the trek to that track and check out for sure.

Sounds good man. I need to meet some people down south to run RCs with. I still have fun driving my RCs up north here, but none of my friends are into it and no clubs or anything, so it gets a little old just bashing by myself.

And last time I asked a girl if she wanted to drive my little buggy I got slapped...

Good to see another MaxAmps fan. I run those batteries exclusively, I like the longer run times you can achievce with a 6500 mAh lipo. You can't beat that!!!
