Default What do you want to see made?

You may have seen this thread on the other areas. Thought I would put it here to. This is my special area.. So have at it.As apart of a new company that plans on making lexan and aluminum hop-up parts for cars and eventually kits and conversion kits. I was wondering what do you guys want to see be made and what hop-ups would you buy?

Thank you,
Ethan

Ditto on the brushless 1/8th scale RTR.

Oh god, not RTR.

A good conversion that makes the layout similar to that of a B44 or such.

Ok, Let me rephrase that. A RTR that is built to the specs that I would want.

Such as a 2000 kv or higher motor and an esc that can handle up to 6s lipo for starters. With on board LVC and BEC. Also with a usb interface with programmable profiles. Built as tough as a Mugen.

brushless conversions for all sorts of trucks. revo, 1/8 buggy and truggy, LST and LST2, tamiya terra crusher. and over time you could make rtr or kits that come with truck, motor of choice, esc of choice, battery of choice, etc. that would be sick. if the kit for a revo stood up to the tekno one, id buy one.

plastic or similar companant spurs for 1/8th conversions. Converting mugens & such is a pain because they don't make a plastic spur.

Streetracer: I love that idea and I think that our business can go places with brushless conversions. We just have to find cars that don't have conversions already or make more inexspensive ones.
Party_wagon: We will have to factor that in.
BuggyKing: Yes everything will be made here in america
Drknow: Where the heck is Carbondale? Been licing in colorado all my life and never heard of it. haha Actually Eletric Off-road my one and only special area. I have had 2 on-roads , and I think 5 or 6 off-roads all eletric no nitro's so this home for me. Its wierd posting in the nitro forum

Peace

Here's a realistic idea that needs to be made. I believe Losi is going to have to make something themselves or redesign the XXXT-CR. EVERYONE, I mean that literally, that I know that has the new EA3 composite chassis on their truck has had it crack along side of the battery tray causing it to flex A LOT! I've had people argue this saying their truck has never cracked and that I must be abusing it. Then they look at their truck and it's cracked too.

Anyway, a lot of people who are running lipos in their CR truck never take their lipo out during the race day. We need an aluminum brace that connects (or is part of) the servo brace to the rear bulkhead. It would relieve the stress on the side of the battery tray (that keeps snapping) and it would also be a battery strap. I know you would sell at least 20 of them at our track. I know you would need to sell more to produce..... but look at it this way, that's 100% of XXXT-CR owners at our track! Read the XXXT-CR thread on here and see what I mean.. it's the thread title, "what are your opionions XXXT CR".
