I know what you mean. I sometimes run 4 classes. 2 nitro and 2 e classes on race day. My buddies call it the ironman. Tons of track time but man if something breaks I feel like I need my own pit crew to keep up and I usually get my buddys nephew to corner for me

BTW that body is sleek and smooth just the way the snake should be.

Better yet, get rid of the bullet connectors and solder the wires directly to the motor. Bullet connectors are just asking for problems on an e-scale. They are high resistance, vibration suseptable weak links in your electronics. I don't even like lipos with plug in bullet connectors for e-scale. Its just begging for a failure or intermittent operation. Stick with direct soldering everything you can, and use Deans or Traxxas connectors for your batteries. Lessons learned the hard way by the pioneers of the class, when the electronics and batteries weren't so good, and any weak links lead to bigger problems.

I don't think there is too much room for error with this buggy. As long as it comes as the "pro kit" 80% of the bugs have been fixed since it uses all but the chassis from its nitro brother. Look at JQ "The Car". Not to bash on The Car, but being a virgin kit things went wrong with the diffs, suspension, plastics. The 811-be on the other hand takes all of those important precision parts from a proven racer. Hopefully this car will be a success from the start.

Try this instead: http://www.absolutehobbyz.com/produc...oducts_id=6131

It's $10 less than the nitro version. Throw in the discount codes and I don't see why anyone would complain.
