Here is a shot of my MRX-5 at the Winter Nats.

Car worked great for me, only made a few setup changes. I cannot wait for some more seat time with it.

I was in Q18 for the mains with a 24 5:08 I needed a 25 5:10 to make the Top 8 or a 25 5:12 for the Top 10

I think i did really well for my first race in 8 years and my first 1/8th open race in 11 years.

Also my first trip to FT Myers

Hey Guys, Noobie in the 1/8 on road Nitro class here and I have a question.

What kind of battery pack should I get? The manual says 1500mah, can I get a stronger battery and perhaps a LiPo? I would assume I can but don't wanna ef it up.

Thanks

(I used to race 1/10 electric buggies but driving an hour+ traffic to get to the track was getting annoying so need something else to tickle my pickle if I wanna stay local.)
