That's a good price! Then we need to find 48 pitch pinions with 5mm id. Please post when you get the adapters. Don

These are all great idea...YoDog, does typical 48P pinion (540 motor used type) be able to use on these 5mm shaft motor by simply enlarge the inside hole to 5mm?

DLS II...do you have any link about those batteries that you are using? I would like to checkout some spec of them...thanks. Also, what KV is your Novak motor?

oops, I forgot about the 5mm motor shaft!

You may notice that I still have the older HV with the 1/8th inch shaft.

Maybe something can be done....

My budget has tightened up a lot. The A123 cells can be gotten in a lot of different places on the net. Unfortunately the MEC SPT's are no longer available. MEC closed up shop-but his business is for sale. You can even break down a Dewalt 36 volt pack (10 cells) and build your own. I bought the Novak 4.5 (5000 KV) with a 5mm shaft because I had heard the .125 shafts had a tendency to snap. But maybe that was offroad only? When I originally bought the HV system it had the .125 shaft and I traded it in for a 5mm because of the strength issue. The sc is also one of the original HV and came with a seperate low voltage lipo detect circuit. Don

Yupp, that's the same one I have.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed with the 1/8" shaft but I haven't hit much either. Getting the car airborn and having the big ass tires on the offroaders was probably the main culprit with all the broken shafts. I also noticed that most of those who broke them had pretty poor installations.
Wobbly gears and flimsy mounts are really bad at high RPM.

I think MaxAmps sells A123 cells.

I'm looking for wheels/tires for my Evolva. Is Twistertiresusa a good supplier? Are their wheels/tires ok? They look to have good prices-unless someone knows of someplace with lower prices. Thanks, Don

I used Twister before for my Serpent, good like other brands, with good price...but now, there are plenty of brand that does multi-offset tires, including the Serpent brand like Xceed that made tires beside Serpent..

LEE from winner circle always have good price...nice guy, and good site to deal with....$35 for a set, can't beat it.

I've been running Jaco tires on my Evolva for the last 3 years and can't complain, their prices are reasonable too.

Should be around $30-$35 per set.

This is a swedish Evolva conversion, this far the biggest problem has been belt tearing.

It's been tested on track and it's easily just as fast as the nitro cars which has been the main goal.

He's got the right idea with battery placement-outboard where there's room! 77MPH, that's fast enough. Nice conversion. Don

Here is the Empire eM3. Very promising. Wiring and layout still to be refined - don't worry, it will be RC art when done. Based upon our success with our eMP9 (Kyosho's 1/8th scale off-road).

Empire is
Mastery: Rick Davis
Driver: Scott Kimbrow, Current ROAR National 1/8th Champion
(West Coast) Wrench/Driver: Jim Adkins
Mouth piece/free opinions/occasional pitboy: Rich Browne

Kyosho M3 chassis
Castle Creation MMM Speed control and 2650 KV motor
Spectrum Radio

Goal: run 10 minutes per battery, 4 cell, 14.8 Lipo. Speed equal to fuel
