I am running the 1900KV at the Austin track. I will run a 2250KV at bigger tracks.

Here is a video of me racing with the 1900KV. I am the white car of course.

So, what is your ESC/Motor setup? Please, after the tests, imform us how
it is compared with the GPs.

Hello Pompeu, Marcos here !

You are right, we purchase a Ofna GTP2e and we have a intention to start
a new category in our local track , only 1/8 EP Car's will be allowed .

Our Setup is the Combo Mamba Monster 2200 kv with Lipo 4S 4500 mAh ( from
HobbyKing)

The stock pinion is too short , i need to purchase other pinion to get more
speed.

We are newbie with EP Car's, but we have a luck to have friends with high
knowledge about , like Flavio Salinet .

i can't post pictures of my car yet (new registration in Rc Tech), so Pato Concha will post the pictures

I run 5 post no matter what body I am using. Just keeps it more rigid.

No , i always use 5 body posts in my car's because the fixation in the car and the down force of the body increase a lot .

That's my impression .

Looks nice, Marcos!
Hey, you should also post on rceletrico!
I thought that nobody had this car here in Brazil.
Just look at this topic:
http://www.rceletrico.com.br/forum/v...p?f=16&t=21277
It would be nice if you could post your impressions of the car there so many people that can't write/read in english can be interested in it, and grow the 1/8 GP EP category here in Brazil.
I'm waiting on your review after the first run.
Cheers,
Pompeu

My distributor told me this morning that they are on their way to the US, we should have them on the site soon for pre-order. The R1's are going fast!

If you don't mind me asking, what's your gearing when running the 2250kV? I'm currently running a Tekin 2250kv geared at 17/48 and I find it to be damn fast and too much torque. Thinking about going to a 16T or 15T pinion.

Chief.... Wild Bill just got the 2250kv and has not run it yet with his Kyosho. I honestly think he is going to use me as a test dummy at our local track.
