Thanks for the replies..... I was hopeing to find someone who had tried a couple different styles of kits.
I think for speed runs the RC Monster is hands down the best for all out speed, I want to build one more for racing.
Last night we raced one and he actually won the sportsmans class. He is running the discontinued Castle Creations kit, so he is running two 5000mah 4S lipos in paralell, He was able to make a 15 minute main with no issues at all. His car is quite heavy but it handles well. He has a 8.5t 550 motor and his EPA was set around 80%, they did speed runs down the back straight against a few nitros and set it so he was about the same speed.
I guess I will keep looking around....thanks
Since all the kits I see only have one battery the weight will be lower but I will have to see whats the highest mah 4s I can get to make 15-20 minute mains.
