I'm running the Blitz RS4 but there are quite a few suitable bodies. For ESC you can't go wrong with the Hobbywing XR10 Pro Stock Spec. You want to get the electrics side as light as possible since there's only a shorty pack to balance against.

I'm glad I got this part over with. Now I don't have to worry about running out of parts, at least the parts I can't fabricate on my own. I'll start on the chassis in a couple of months. I'm just not into it right now, plus I still need to get the electronics.. I expect to have the car up and running by summer maybe.

BTW, do you know if I can run the diff in the front too (run diffs front and rear). My basement track is small so I'm not sure a spool is going to work very well.

Thanks again guys for letting me know about this kit. I just love double deck CF and the quality is definitely there. I loved my RoadRunner from back in the day, I'm sure I'll love this kit too.
Yes, a diff fits straight in (XP-10022) but you need another pair of the c-blades to go on the front driveshafts. It does make the car hugely easier to drive on a small tight track. Mine was undrivable with the spool, just kept spinning out all the time. Now with some 100k oil up front it's nearly right. I'm going to try some 200k to fine tune it.

Thanks Mini35! This is what I was worried about, this is great info. I have both parts. I will skip the spool in this case.

Guy, you need to try the car out of the box. The Q1s And the xm1s have alot of steering.

I'm planning to get a Datsun 510. I think it would be cool to see a bunch of old school bodies scooting around the track.
