not a hacker, it's a schulze uforce 75
the motor is an LMT Basic 4200 - on 6 cells comparable to a 12-14t brushed motor. Didn't try more, but motor and esc could handle up to 12cells.
I think 8-9cells (or 3s LIPO equivalent) is the maximum that is still driveable on a wide open 1/8 track.

Anyone know how much of a weight difference you have between the SB Sport and the SB w/ graphite mounted decks, aluminum mounts, etc.

Cain,

You were asking about the tires. I placed 4 rear wheels all the way around and mounted them with bow-ties.
On the front you need to redrill a hole further forward for the steering linkage and the wheel will clear.

I'm trying mine out tonight for the first time with everthing together right and the new tires.

No fan now. I went back and re-fit everything to fit under the body and there is no room for a fan and a battery (for some reason my battery slot doesnt work on my reciever).

I am starting with a 19 tooth pinion as the stock one was too fast and the motor heated up quite quickly (novak 5800).

I'll let you know how well the bowties hook up. Though even with the bald stock tires (i ran them on concrete; not good), I could hit the tripples the pro's were hitting here for the Kyosho challenge. It was difficult to control with those tires.

Chris.

It is of course upto you all, but just wait a couple of weeks and let us try the Velox steering arms, It is better to wait a week than find out they dont fit.

Also on our website www.evolutionracingproducts.net I will add a Euros page, this page will be updated daily by myself in Italy telling you exactly how the SB's is getting on.

I understand we will have about 10 there.

IF you want some driveshafts done for the Euro's, send them down, and I Will get them back to you pretty quick mate.

And with the Euro's, if I can get the results as they happen, I can try and get them posted here for you, and other forums too, so we all know how good the car is going.

Any way to get evolution products in the US, especially any upgrades you guys come up with?

Ok went to the track this afternoon. Man the bow-ties hooked up great. And the steering mod (moving the pivot ball back about 3mm on the axle carrier) worked out great with the rear wheels in the front. It turned and handled much better than stock. This means easy access to tires at just about any hobby shop; since everyone has rear buggy tires, you can get just about anything you want.

Chris.

I think I also found some other rims that will work after a quick test fit.

If you get Traxxas Stampede front rims, they seemed to mount up fine at least on the front of the vehicle using the hexes I had. So who knows, you could make a 4wd shaft truck

I saw the front page on the RCCA website, but I haven't seen the article. How soon do they release the issues? Also, I wonder how they decide what article they put up on the website. Would love to see them put the Academy Review on the website.

Cain, Academy do a nitro 4wd Truck which is based on the SB, so you could have a truck, and only pay Academy money for tyres and rims

What all fits on the SB from the nitro truck? Main thing would be the mounts for the body, arms, etc.

I would guess that if it fits onto the gearbox casing on the truck, it will fit on the casing of the SB.
