This body doesn't have any decal or mask. Not even window masks.
So here's my lousy masking, painting job.



The most beautiful car of the world.

The chassis rocks. SO easy to adjust rear traction on the car. And tons of room to put electronics. Current setup is a 8 cell pack, full size servo, LRP receiver and speedo, and an Orion Big Block. All this equipment fits on the lower chassis plate, and the Corvette body fits perfect!

A must have JUST for the tuning options in the rear.

Go here for some pix....

I don't know if anyone even follows this thread anymore, but at TCHR in Minnesota we are starting to run Micros in the regular race program. For the time being, I think it is just 5-cell box stock motor, stock chassis. So if you are in this neck of the woods, bring your Micros on Thursday and Saturday nights. 6 minute qualifiers and 10 minute main! The track is identical to the one layed out on HPI's site. Lots of cars already and great competition!

I hope we can work out something like that here. All the thousands of motor, battery, and chassis options... looks like its almost impossible to make a set of rules for a micro class that everyone agrees on.

Here, the guys usually run as many as they have. The local race directors can't really get anyone to race their Micros. In fact, I don't race mine here either. I bought mine just to have fun with.

No Epic or Penguin chassis here. I went with the chassis that delivers the best cost-to-performance ratio, the ARM chassis. Other than that though, my car is pretty much void of hop-ups. I also like running the kit motor. With six cells, it has plenty of speed and run time for me. I'll leave the speed300 motors to others!

Same here Darkseid.. I also like the 1 hour runtimes with the stock motor. I just got a graphite orion chassis only cuz I kept tweaking the plastic ones from crashes... it wouldnt steer straight anymore!

Default Choosing the right cell?

How did you guys decide what cell to run?

I have seen a lot of people have had success with the 2/3A cells, but aren't they big bulky and heavier than say a brick pack?

Which cell offers the most punch?

I believe that the 2/3a NiCDs have the most punch; thats what Ive heard most. I could be wrong. Of course theyre heavier but have 1100 mah rather than 600

Well, I have a fully built Micro for any modified classes, and a completely stock setup for stock racing. Honestly, I like the stock setup better. It's easier to drive, you get TONS of run time, and the racing is usually ALOT closer. It's 5 (or 6) cell, stock motors, and set gearing (between 8-10t). Stock chassis, any electronics, any springs, any bodies (TC style bodies only), and stock tires. We usually get about 5-10 guys racing. It's a great little series.

The modified is fun, but only on bigger track where you can actually use all the power. That's where the modified chassis' come into play.
