Yes it s the exact same car as the LRP S8 BX. But i must admit i jumped on my chair when i saw the price of the S8BX in europe... i am glad to have it under SH Z-car in North America...[/QUOTE]

Actually, it is not exact the same as LRP S8 BX...
Looks like it's more look like S8 BXR Evo, that i just received

The weight of the kit with all those upgrades is : 2900 grams.

Now i m running into a little issue, since the RC PRO has for rule : 3200 grams minimum...

What would be the best way to add weight ???!!

Thanks,

The great thing about an under wiegth car is you can add wiegth where you need it on any given race day/track.

Get your self some sticky wieghts from a golf shop (they have it for golf clubs) and add it to the chassie to balance it out. need a little more rear put some in the back and so on.

Quick Update on the performance :

I have spent two days at the track, trying to get everything setup for the upcoming race and season start. ( in 5 days now ).

First, i had to put the Throttle EPA to 30 %. Just way too much power, was all over the track without that, then i add some exponential to make it even more easier to drive. On top on that, i have put 7000 in front, 3000 middle, 2000 rear.
Seems now perfect. I have been able to get the lap record on the track ( the track is new th...)
Then i went for the timing... 16 mins runtime. The EPA and exponential plays a lot in this runtime. But still... that's a hell of a runtime. I flipped 3 - 4 times in those 16 mins, and mar-shall was.. slow.. so in an actual race, i may do 14 to 15 mins runtime, i am really impressed with this setup so far. The only things that went wrong, was my fault : Lost a screw that was not tighten enough, lost a wheel ( yea.. i know..), Broken the wing by landing, not where i was supposed to, not how i was supposed to...

PS : The engine was running between 240 and 260.

Video comin soon, if my friend finds how to upload something on youtube...
