If you ever mounted the stock ofna tires its a PITA... especially with the dual internal foam. And the non belted tires are useless once you go faster than 60MPH because it expands and flaps like crazy.

Yeah they were annoying to mount them. Also i am running a 2200kv with the mamba v3. I see they have kits where i can run 2 batteries and make it a 6 cell. Is that bad for the esc.

When you are talking about 6cell are you talking about LIPO or NiMh? I am going to assume you are talking about 6S lipo. With some trimming of the stock battery box i was able to run two 3S lipo side by side (Two -Turnigy Nano Tech 5000mah 65C constant = 6S total). I run the 6S setup all the time and never had any problems. Just watch your temps and you will be fine.

Doesn't the single speed adapter come with a spur gear? What does the adapter do? Basically make it usually with other pinion sizes? I am new to 1/8. Help a brother out. Like what gearing who achieve speeds of atleast 75-80 with a 3cell maybe 4 cell. I dont want over heating issues.

guys for a pure speed car what are you putting in your diffs? Should I have 100k laying around and was thinking of putting that in. Too much.. I just don't want to get wheel spin on 6s.

currently running a 21/36 spur with the single speed conversion. This is rediculous fast with a single 3 cell. Monday i will get my 6 cell and try it out. Tuesday i should have my slicks. What sucks about my car is that i cant get it to drive straight? sloppy steering?

Anyone know where I can purchase a new chassis? Mine is slightly bent due to a high speed crash. Or do you think I could just straighten it out and it would still function properly? I don't race so tolerances don't need to be perfect. Just close to perfect.
