I sold alot of my cars, But I still have too many. AND many more to come. If I wasn't so busy and lazy when I have the time, I can build a car from scratch but too many hobbies so little time and not enough money...

Thats excellent to have a car that good and be legal. I believe it must be fast. What motor are you running? Is it brushless?

It's a RAE 6magnet can with a 8x2 turn. Drag motor. I built it up too and it should go some where in the 1.7s not tuned, once the motor is tuned I should go in the mid to low 1.6s. Maybe faster. I will find out once the body gets painted and the wing put on. I'm aimming to get the car to come in at 44oz. If I get the car that light I will going fast. I'm at 47oz. now. I still have to change out the servos and shave abit more weight off.

Well if you want to set up your car for the street, I have a nice set up for street racing. I can help you go fast on 6-7 cells too.

It's amazing how serious people are into it. I get serious for my nitro cars so I can imagine how serious you are right now and how annoying it can get at times. Let me know in the future how you go for the weight!

What setup do you have? What is it that makes it fast? I wouldn't mind going fast on a 6 or 7 cell. Do you have any pics? Sorry to hassle you about pics. lol Thanks

I'm serious about this hobby, nitro or electric it doesn't matter to me. I just favor my electrics because when set up properly electric is faster than nitro pound for pound. As for my promod it's looking like it should come in once everything is done it should be and honest 45-46oz. Lets see what happens...

Well I just took my camaro you see in my avatar and took out the 14 cell set up and put it down to 7 cells. It's a set up that I used in my TC3 to bust a whole bunch of nitro and electric @sses in drag racing. Yes, I have a TC3 I drag race too it's my sleeper for the big mouths who think they have fast cars.
