Hi Andy,

You need to use shorter batteries than the standerd NIMH packs, beause these won't fit.
Better look for lipo or life packs that are shorter than standard cell packs.

Check the Motonica site for dealers to order parts. Don't know where you are ...

But the RS3 is one hell of a car ...

Greetz,
Christoph

I noticed they changed some things on the shocks .... are the shock bodies 16mm on the RS3?

Thanks

I've experienced unwinding of the 2 M3 set screws at 2 speed shoe, that resulted to inconsistence 2 speed engagement. Tried M4 set screws with lock tide on my 2nd set, problem persisted, any solution? Ya, I think 3rd set required.

Strange, i didn't have any problems on my RS2 with second gear.
It has been a while since i drove it though. I am testig the Viper.

i do leave out those 2 tiny screws in the shoes that hold the metal balls.

Greetings,
Christoph

Hi Christoph,

it got very quiet around Motonica.

No updates to their website, not much support for the drivers.

There are rumours though, that they will have an all new car for next year.
