I kind of thought the same thing. Then I kind of changed my mind, since it won't go fast I can just attach body with velcro and not make holes in body for posts.

I'll be happy if body turns out okay.

Its so funny to read on the fb rc groups. Someone asked if a 4600kv on 2s was to much for a B6 buggy. They all responded with, "Its too much for that car, you will blow out your trans"! I couldnt help but laugh my ass off! I run way more than that and have yet to blow my trans or strip a gear. They have no clue what bashers do. I dont listen to the slow track racers. I want to go fast and thats all I do. You will never catch me on a track with old men that have the reflexes of a paper bag. 2s is a joke as well as 17.5 and even their mod classes. Street racing is where you find the real fast guys not limited by ROAR or MEOW or whatever they go by.

I didn't know any better, and my first brushless rc was associated sc10 5700kv 3s.

It was super quick, lol. Can't believe I didn't destroy motor. It would get extremely hot.



About Facebook, it's crazy some of the nonsense that gets posted in my rc group, and how many take that nonsense as gospel. Unfortunately I'm moderator so I avoid any controversy, lol. Seems like 90-95% of group believes the nonsense stuff.

why does no one use AE's or Losi's? seriously, i spent like an hour googling once, found ONE built from a losi (buggy with short course truck chassis) haven't seen one built off an AE yet.

1/6 Super Baja Rey/ Super Rock Rey. I tried turning down moderator duties, by admin was pushy and I'm not good at saying no.

I can't take total credit for the car I picked it up as a roller and improved on it a bit. The body looks better in the pic than in person I will never and i repeat never have another body I have to glue the fount clip on the car.
