We have instructions online about how to build a 5-cell pack, adding another cell is easy. 8 cells can blow up your ESC if it isn't rated for it, be sure to check the specs of your ESC to make sure it can handle 9.6v! The instructions are at Kits > Micro > Racing Tips on http://www.hpiracing.com

Also, if you run it on a 1/10 scale track try to use a bright color for painting the body - it's easy to 'lose' against a track surface with a dark paint job!

There were a few guys running these cars at SoCal in practice on Saturday. Can't say too much about the performance (at least not compared to what we're all used too) but man, can they take a beating. The regular 1/10th scale sedans and Pan Cars were using them as speedbumps but they would just drive away.

Hey guys,

What happened to this thread?? Let's keep it rolling!!
Here's some tips I've found:
I took the spring off the rear shock and added some of the included silicone grease on the shock to dampen the rear.

I did the same on the front shocks to smooth out the front.

You can dremel a small amount of material off the chassis where it flexes for the rear suspension to soften it up a little.

To make battery packs, do everything the same as regular sub c's, except cut your battery bars a little shorter to get a better fit. I used all 14ga. wire for the electrics.

For batteries, I used Radio Shack 1600 Mah AA's, and they made it considerably faster and I personally think the extra weight helped the traction. Use a little Goo to hold them together.

Anyone going nutz on batteries ? I am running a 6 cell NiMh pack that I made, It fits perfect, I just used some of the bumper spacing foam, stuck it to the top side of the bottom chassis plate, and the bottom side of the battery mount. The battery just slides inbetween the foam, nice and snug, plus it clears the belts nice...
I have some nasty wrecks going full speed, and the battery does not move...

I cannot wait for the Mod.... I think I am gonna go with the HPI 40 turn... anyone else running differnt Mod motors ?
