What gear ratio are you looking to use? What is your final rollout? I can help you with that. Just let me know.

roger, the current record is 1.3277et. held by Nic Case who also has the record for the fastest r/c car in the world. i think the current mph drag record is 108.7mph by Jim Shauer....all of them are electric cars. BTW parnelli97, i checked cheapbatterypacks website and all of the RX batteries you could want are all in stock....i ordered some new ones myself! $1ea. how can you go wrong? Tim T

It's funny you said that because I have a m04L chassis that was a birthday gift and I'm in the process of making it a drag sleeper with it. Even with limited gearing I did find a way to go pretty dam fast with it. Just pm me and we will talk from there, I have some ideas for you.
