My fault there was no info with the motors....I should have had Joe put them in boxes or something to send to you guys. We had just got them in and I just went out and grabbed 8 of them straight of the floor....4 for associated and 4 for us to play......um I mean "test" with in engineering.

I may wait for the parts to be available, I am not really interested in the motor mount or gears and Im guessing that is the most expensive part of teh kit...

I would be very curious to see if AE does release the parts seperate. I would like there receiver box. I do like how the motor mount looks, just not sure of the battery tray as far as weight balance goes, but, I for one do run the RCPD conversion with a heavy 4S PQ6000XP pack, and it does perform well so maybe its a non issue.

i have the larger pack in my rc8 the only issue i have with running the big 4s pack is that i had to find somewhere to put my esc...
i like the idea of using two 2s packs if it keeps the car balanced right to left.
