I managed to get it going on the street, and it sounds better now. I managed to lose a wheel nut, but luckily found it.

The inner rear tire seem to lift a little when I do a sharp turn on the pavement. I think the shocks were too stiff.

It is a pleasure to drive it - it was screaming up and down my street.

I don't have losi ESC but I have never been able to keep fans on my CC ESC's. I just got the JConcepts body and mounted the esc in the air stream. This weekend it ran 155F after 20 mins of running with no fan. Thats with air temps in the mid 90s.

I really like my 2.0 nitro but Im sick of nitro. What do I need to do to get a 2.0E to go 20 min? No Im not the smoothest but I dont drive punched.

Besides servo, battery and reciever what else do I need? Does it come with pinions?

Any links to the Zippy batteries that I need?

zippy's come from only one place...google them and you'll find em

as for which battery.....it all depends on what KV motor you have and what set-up you want to run....a 5cell set-up will be heavier then a 4 cell But you might have a hard time making a full 20 min without goin over 5000mah on the pack....is it critical to make 20 min ?
