It's good for now. Still some new numbers left I think. Gearing change and Riley Daytona Prototype body should help. Anyone try these bodies before?

I believe Phillldog runs one of those McAllister Racing bodies. Does well for him!

Sounds like with your setup, 100+ mph speeds are just a gearing change away. Even more with a better battery. Go for it!!

I ordered one a few days ago, looked to be a good body so I went for it. My speed 6 is beathe up bad.lol

As of right now the best past is 108 mph on the garmin. I'm hoping a better battery, body and Gearing help some.

Awesome! That's what I was hoping g to hear. How is the handling compared to the protoform bodies? I know before mine got beat up so bad it tracked straight as an arrow. That was with the wing trimmed down also.

Sounds like you're definitely on the right track! What's your goal? Keep working at those speeds and post some vids.

I'm shooting for 120 on three cells with a 540 motor. I'm gonna be limited by heat... that's my biggest worry. I have some videos but for some reason look like they were shot with a potato. . I can't post a link yet.. not enough posts.

Good luck man! Definitely gonna need a great 3s battery. You mite need a mamba monster or something with more amps. It will run much cooler than your mamba max too since temps are a concern.

Let us know how it comes along with some pics maybe.
