Oh in other news, I got my two turnigy 2s 5200mah hard case lipo's today. That will be my 4s pack in series. They fit a bit tighter than my 6s in the tray, but they do fit. Charging them up now.

My 30C wont even fit the same way as yours, with the wires pointing up. But are you sure the wires doesnt push the body a little bit?

Good morning
Can anyone tell me if the Vorza body will fit my D8. I for one really like the shape of it.
Thanks, GeorgeC

So what's the Vorza's top speed on 6s then? Can it beat the E-Revo at 91mph? Or the RC8e at 100mph?

Geared for those speeds those cars can only run a very short period of time. Im not sure if anybody in here has tried those EXTREME gearing combos.

Where have you seen those cars go that fast? I know ppl were struggling to get the e-revo to 80??

How useful would it be at those speeds anyways?

I'm jealous of all of you that already have this buggy. I probably won't have mine until April, since I need to save up the cash.

Those speeds arent useful.My thought is if you want to go that fast buy a touring car.The Vorza is a buggy.
