I need to get it up to running weight and set the suspension height with the body off. Then I will do a final trim on the lower cut line. I think that is the best way to go. Sort of get the chassis right then fit the body to that.

Thanks man. Had to order 2 more replacement motors so it will be at least a month till I see these kind of 3s and 4s speeds again. I may go with my Castle 3800kv motor on 6s in the meantime. Just waiting on a few parts to get the car back together. Really wasnt that bad. Broke a arm, knuckle, and belt.

Well, made a quick run yesterday. The EZRUN Max6 is definitely holding back a TON.
I was geared for 130 or so and went 88mph with the xo-1 motor, before that was geared to 115 and went 98 so definitely some limiting going on there. My old ezrun 150a went 112 lol.
So in goes the XLX!!

Wow that is doing some serious limiting.
Still waiting for the J concepts Screw on body mounts to come in. They are on back order. So I installed a truck body and am going to run it with that. New battery too.
