tex1- the only tire i had with me was bowties in m2, i ran them they were decent. but the majority were running m2 crime fighters with the outside lugs cut at a 45. the track looks blue groved on the net but it is slick! its very weird.

Me and my partners are running these lipo packs.

http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...ducts_id/10617

I'm getting 2 hours easy running two Hitec 5955 TG servos and transponder.
I'm using the 7amp MuchMore Regulator and the power is there to the end

http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...oducts_id/9719

To be honest the pack has never ran down on me, was still going strong at the 2 hour mark

I'm running a Cen Matrix TR and he is running the 8ight, the lipo fit the 8ight perfect with the flat lipo top.

Micros - I heard Porter's track is slick. I wonder if Panther rubber will hook up on it. If anyone knows please let me know.

BTW- Was it slick because of dust or was it slick because it gets slimmey? Or is it just sand that nothing seemed to hook up on? Does it hold rubber at all?

If you don't know that is fine. Just getting ready.

Trebor - I run a 1000 mha pack from VXR. It gets about 1hr 20 min no problem. You need to run a regulator if you run Lipo. They weigh much less than a Reg batt and give the car a better balance from side to side.
I think they are worth it for this car.

Dallas guys guys get you shizzle ready! Porter here we come!

tex- to be honest it is just a weird surface. it is cement hard. with no dust. i know reggie tounge used clay k2's and was sucessful with thoes, however i only use bowties for the little time i was there. there is dust on the outside of the line but the middle line is just dry slick and hard.

Anyone running a RB C6 in their Losi? If so what clutch set-up are you using?
I have been running my S7 with 2 carbons/gold & 2 7075's/silver but I was thinking the C6 may have enough low end to run lighter springs/earlyer engaugement. Comments?
Thanks
Mike
