Awesome to see another new racer come out!

In addition to the AKA, people also run a lot of Proline Calibers. I'm running JC Goosebumps pretty well now and they look like they'll last awhile on the watered track (they get torn up much quicker on dry, abrasive surfaces).

I love that there are so many tire options out there now! I remember it was like ProLine for wet tracks and Losi for dry tracks. . . Now we have those two plus JConcepts, Panther, AKA and more.

I like to be different! (at least a little)

well than you tell me whats wrong. The motor fried after 5 minutes of run time. Another person had the same problem with two motors in a row. Now the ESC? Something aint right and its not the wiring.

What ESC should i buy now? Any one got a good brand other than LRP.

well if your gearing is wrong yes it will happen if your temp are not were they should be yes it will happen and I know if you put a high c rating battery to certain esc's it will happen if your soldering is touching one another it can happen lots of things can go wrong...

Go with Teakin before the mamba

But get a hold of LRP and get a RMA number to send that stuff back to get it warrentied!
