I have a question for you, which "Thunder" 610 do you have.

I just noticed that there is a ThunderPower 610 on Amain also.

I use one of these chargers, 4 separate balance chargers in one, it's very good and can balance charge four 6S lipos at the same time.

Used to take two Elysium LX60B Pro chargers to race meetings, but the 'powerpal 4' is far easier.

Those slicks look almost like drift tires. Shiny! How sticky are they on asphalt?

I'm going to try these for street use. Dynamite 'Hot Laps' - Only cost me USD$30 for the pre-glued set of four from A-main.

Is this for your universal conversion?
Please list all part numbers and quantities.

Those are the capture pins for the inner location. You want the outer ones, closest to the wheels.

wrexxy, they hook up really well. That shine is just a coating I think when they are new, afterwords they look grey in color.

Those dynamites, look nice, let me know what you think of them.

I use those Dynamites. On 6S the pre-glue won't hold, just be aware. On 4S they are fine. Traction could be better, but it isn't bad.

I spent a whole day driving my Vorza on the track a few days ago. And I must say I love the Vorza!! It took so much beating without breaking anything, I'm just amazed.

If you get bored easily you should skip the first 3 minutes where my friend is driving for the first time. And as you can see, our track is kinda rough. So what springs/fluid would fit the track?

+ YouTube Video
ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.


Edit: Woops, that video has already been posted. Sry Got a new one comming up.

Sorry I don't. Someone posted the options. Search through the first few pages. I believe the posts were early on. Or just key word search this thread.
