I'd run one if they go on Clearance and were half off $$.

I liked using gearchart.com, but I think the site is now gone / expired.

I had an FG 1/5 scale car about 20 years ago and LOVED it. If you pushed it too hard, you could feel the tires heat up and fade. If you backed off a little, you could feel them come back. 30+ minutes run time on one tank. Awesome.

to the people running a sakura ultimate or XI sport how did you add weight to the car. I know i can put sticky weights on the car and i have them one there now but i do not like it. it looks ugly with all them on there. has someone else done anything different with putting weight on the car and it look good? pictures would be great
