What's up? What info do you need?
Hey Clint, what batteries are you using? I'd like to run 4800 or 5000 but will they fit w/out shaving to the rear motor mounts?

The Orion 4800's fit without shaving but it's a snug fit. The SMC's 5000's require's shaving. Currently I am using SMC batteries. Both batteries are killer IMO People seem to want to bench race the "C" rating now-a-days (is that a word) but the open mod at the Reedy was won using Orion 4800's and they are rated at 15C. Personal preference is what you should go for. Even though I currently have SMC I still favor the Orion's because of the cleaner look. The SMC 400 will fit right in without any shaving along with the Orion 3800.

I run Pro-Match's 5000 and they also require a little dremel work on the rear bulkhead too.

Just for kicks, what servo are guys running in your car? I'm thinking of getting a new one. Thoughts?

I use a KO propo servo, cant remember which one but its quick and it was cheaper than the top of the line Futaba servos. I would recommend using a KO servo if you want a really quick good quality one at a decent price.
