Well you could buy one of these to use just for charging and build another without the balance plug for racing.

I think all VTA cars should be painted on the outside with either silver or rust color painted on the inside. This way when you are "trading paint" you really are trading paint!!

Monkey, check out Eric's batteries if you want a good one. I bought 2 of his VTA batteries from him at the Nats and they are the best batteries I've ever had. I got the 2s 70c 5000mAh, they handle a 3c charge rate also. He has them for $55 a pack

He will get back to you. I bought a motor from him through PM and he sent it out the following day. He usually replies at night. Im guessing after working hours.

Possibly since you didnt respond to a couple in the same time frame either. But didnt respond to text about pictures or anything either so figured I upset you somehow and took it all as such. No worries either way

I don't think that it's possible to load X-Drive onto an old GTB2. If you go to the web page listed below you can trade-in your older version GTB2 for the latest version with X-drive on it. You just have to pay $80.00 and ship your old ESC back to Team Novak.

So maybe we can look forward to more bodies in the future as well. I know Id love to run a Pontiac....my first car was a 69 Firebird so would bring back lots of memories for me.
All right! That's good to hear coming from JConcepts!

+1 I have a 1/10 scale Nikko 1972 Pontiac Firebird shell if they need one to create a mold.
