I finished building my car last night. Transponder isn't in the right place because have a RC4 coming very soon for this car. Sorry for the fuzzy photo, low light and phone camera.

Have to say I'm impressed - after owning Schu SX1 and Kyosho ZX5 FS2 as also experience of B44/B44.1, this, at least, is very promising!

So easy for maintenance! Smooth transmission and very light weight.
I'm eager to check what is the weight.

I was hoping to use FS2 wheels, but seems that it isn't possible due to differences. Have to check those shims.

Today I'll try to paint the body and tomorrow hit the track!

Great to see how other people install the electronics and cables.

My wishes for the future is double layer chassis with cable channels built in for clean installs. I realize it probably won't happen because it might be hard to combine that and correct amount of chassis flex.

I think I'll try out shortening wires for the servo and ESC soon.

I'm going to try these Turnigy packs soon when I get them (NC5000.2S3P.30):
http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...dProduct=24202

They got ROAR approved this year (2012-07-25).

Edit: With a 6.5 you should probably buy the once you found as they have higher C rating.

Yes, I believe that will be a great combo.

I did buy 3 sets of this and 2 of them balooned quite a bit after just a few runs, Dont know why because others dont seem to have a problem with them.
I may just be unlucky??????
I used them with a 5.5turn motor in durango dex410...

I use the A-spec 5600mah now and the feel a lot better to me...

I think HK is having some serious QC issues with their lipo suppliers. I recently bought three 6s nano-tech packs. All three arrived with one or more cells at <1v. That's the first time I have ever had any issues with their packs.

I have the 5100 saddle packs and love them. Cycled probably close to a dozen times now and no issues. A friend running Reddy packs says there is a noticeable increase in punch when he ran my Turnigy nano techs.
