The last run was already no fun.

This is how I reside at the track:


There is no access to electricity so I use a car battery. I am also the only one with a 1/10 scale car. Everybody else has 1/8 buggies, mostly nitro, but the e's are getting more and more.

Today was really good. No issues with the car, even the bones survived my stupid driving. On good runs I was able to go the speed of most of the 1/8 buggies. So I am really happy about how the car behaves and ignores my noob driving.
Wait a sec? are those wings on the body? how badazz is that!

87/24 is a "safe" starting point.

Yes you can use a shorty pack. Put it in the middle and get a lot of spacers to fill in the sides.

Thanks,,,, any photos..
Do you need some weight to compensate the weight difference.?
Otherwise, i guess the CG will move to front which may cause trouble while jump...
