Sorry Danny, been distracted between my new 5th scale onroad car and trying to revive my motorcycle (since it is Spring in Texas), the Plazma Lm get pushed to the side. I will try to test (video???) the car more this coming Saturday if time allows. I will put the 21.5 back in it and log in lap times on my local carpet track.

The car is ballistic enough with a 17.5 with a 2 cell. Once I get more familiar and more drive time on the car, I might go in that direction for my own purposes.

I have a 13.5 in mine and I am planning on testing it soon. It was really fast with the stock motor that came in it. When I have time I will try to get some video.

Just reviving this thread. Found a video on YT which im not allowed to post, but it shows some LMs running 30.5s which seem quite mild, but make for close racing

Recently had a 2 hour endurance race using the Plasma LM. What-A-Blast!

Everyone ran the same 30.5 motor and stayed within a certain roll out range. Using lipo stick packs and kit tires. After the 2 hours and 473 laps my team came out victorious!

There were 5 teams consisting of 2 racers, racers were paired based on drivers skill. Highest paired with lowest skill. This made the competition fun and unpredictable. During the race, each racer can only race for 15-20 minutes each time and then they must switch. When we did switch, we switch out the battery and sometimes made roll out adjustments. Their were no battery dumping issues, I'm pretty sure the lipo batteries can last easily 30 minutes. The motors never ever got hot, after the two hours they were lukewarm.

The best time to race them is at night, with the included light system. Sooooo cool.

Are there any option parts you "must" have on this one?
Just foam or also rubber tires available?

Hey All, I just picked up a 2nd battery for my Plazma RA, and am wondering what other solutions folks have come up with to secure that 1S LiPo that's a little easier/faster than the blue battery tape. I'm clumsy with the stuff and it usually takes me a few tries to thread the stuff through the hole it has to go through and get it smooth...was thinking of velcro, but wondering if there's something cleaner..figured with all of the iterations of this car that have come out since I bought mine that there must be something out there. Thanks!
