i certainly miss those crazy accelerations of the 6.5

i wonder if a tekin RS esc would hold up to a 13.5...its lighter than the hobbywing v3.1 120A in there right now

also i felt my car was way better with 200K in the center when running the 13.5....makes for even output front and rear ...just like the b44.2 with out its center diff

I was running a 13.5 in it in December when I was in AZ, it had plenty of power so I'll be curiuos as to how this 7.5 will feel.

I still feel you're putting way too much thought on the weight of the car compared to your friends B44. I really wish I could make that belt race to help you out and see if it's a setup or driving style issue. I'm sure it's something small that will get you exactly what you're looking for.

my driving has become somewhat sloppy compared to when i did 17.5 2wd bug....6.5 allows for more mistakes that can be corrected or caught up on....compared to spec race

for now i need to tighten up my line or find new ones, i got a few parts i feel the need to practice....and i might need to check my gearing now that the whole car runs much more free...maybe i can get the punch needed to do the triple ....but then again norcal 17.5 expert class is crazy fast, with rob russel laying it down almost every wednesday...and he can get mid 16's with a 17.5....time to study ;-)

yeah the belt race....i bet vik tyler will show up and race + win every class just like last year

7.5 will feel great and it will be fast

Dujuan has a really good car. Vik won't just walk away with a win.

does anyone happen to have an extra front shock shaft they would be willing to sell me? I took a pretty good hit head on and bent mine on my first run with the car!

Looking for some high end servo recommendations for my D413? I'm currently using a Tower Hobbies TS-170, but it seems a bit slow. What are others using?

I use Highest R/C servos in all my cars.

I use this one in my 1/10th scale cars.

Depending on how bad its bent, you can sometimes use a hammer and or vise to bend them back alittle in a pinch. If you use the vise make sure to use a clothe or something so you don't mark the shaft.

Savox 1273tg $99.00 and I'm buying another one for my rb6 I like it so much. Been running it since December in my d413 and still as good as new and I've done some really hard hits.

Someone already answered your question. Now the question is not "if" but "when".

I use Airtronics 94671 in all my stuff, gobs of power and speed and unlike a Savox I can't hear every movement from the drivers stand!
Guy sells them on ebay out of asia for around $80
