Any help is appreciated
Thanks

Well, I bought a few RC12's.
Some 2 bolt some 3 Bolt found reasonable donut and built a tyre lathe using my drill press. I wanted to set up a fast but neat class and what I came up with is this....

See what you think. Standard 540, brushed ESC, 2s2p 18650 cells. Enough grunt, good range, great racing.

Use Armour-All and let it dry out before using.
I'd prefer to wear out my tyres and get new ones often

The 4 x 18650 cells weigh a lot less than 4 cell NiMh (about half) and have 8V 4Ah capacity.
I can remove for charging, keep spares and use them in many other objects.
18650 cells are the AA of the next generation. It's what runs a TESLA.
Even at 4C discharge they'll meet the 120W max of a 540 can easily and give good punch.
Given $100 for a used chassis, then a running car for less than $200 is easy and it's cheap to maintain, durable and tuneable.

Hey everyone...If anybody has a Corally G in decent condition floating around out there they would like to sell shoot me a pm. Was my first ever race grade rc car and wouldn't mind have one for a shelf queen. Don't want to pay an arm and a leg for it but would like a decent one with all the pieces there.

Thanks

Anyone ever come across a Kyosho Plazma MK I? I've never even seen one of these, but I know it was produced. I have just about every other version of the car, but I'd love to know more about the original.

I've seen one on ebay a while back. It is similar to the Mk2. The only difference is that it has a different bottom chassis plate and a longer top radio plate and uses a center pivot arm for the steering (ala RC12E). Front axle and rear pod are the same as the MK2.

Default Parma Euro Panther

In response to Tracey Slatten;

Hi, not sure when you posted, but did you finish the car?

I think it must be a very early one as I only saw the silver rear pods on the late Panthers. I think Bud gave me one, but I only have the black ones now. All the Best
