Very nice, you will get a good solid 15min maybe 20 depending on the track.
You will really like the car. It has a ton of steering, is very forgiving and easy to drive fast.

Decent set-up! I'm liking the motor. Probably has tons of power.

8/10.

I love the setup, especially for a truggy. The 1515 is a little overkill in a buggy but it will run efficient and never be lacking in power. I have run a 1515 in buggy and it worked awesome.

The only downside I can think of, is that you could save a few ounces with a 1512 and smaller capacity packs. But it's not a big deal... the Fusion will handle it easy and it will have tons of rip and great run time. You should get 20 minutes easy.

Btw, my current setup is almost the same as yours, except that I run a 1512 and MM. This summer I'm planning to go a little smaller on the battery unless I will have to run 20 minute mains. Otherwise I'll be running either 4200 or 5250 maxamps packs, and I might try running my 1509 with the light packs.

Oh and I love the choice of car.

9/10

Like ur hardware 9/10

Remember to monitor the esc n motor temp, I burnt 2 feigao n 2 esc becoz I never bother. Now I hv a telementary system in d car n a batt indicator on d shell so when batt low car can come back to change batt ESP in a 30min main.

Dun mind I borrow this thread to rate my setup too

CRT x1 rc monster converted
Motor medusa 1600kv
Batt 6s 5000 zippy
Hobbywing 100amp plane esc with fan attached n water proof
Slipper center diff 46t spur(for the jumps n hard brakes although I dun brake much)
11t Pinion

Wat u guys think?
I ran 2 race (all 10mins heats) ( bash 25mins staight to test d batts) no main yet due to rain, temp was 40-50 degrees just abit too much torque. The slipper diff is new not tested yet.

You should try the NEW MaxAmps cells before you judge.
I had issues with the older cells my self, but the customer service was first class and got me through any short comming.
I now run the NEW cells with much thicker tabs on them. They are great and hold up to the demands of 1/8th scale electric with no issues.

I am running NeuEnergy batteries for 1/8 scale and SMC for 1/10 scale. I couldn't be happier. No need to start a battery discussion thread though, I am sure MaxAmps are fine, they're just too expensive.

I bought the maxamps used with about 50 cycles on them. I did this because i am 15, and s**t's expensive haha My next batts will probably be SMC 5200mah hardcase.
