Just finish painting mine last night. I'll post it tonight......guys are racing them every Monday at Hobbypeople at Encino. Using mod motors and batts. Don't use 5 cells on your stock motors.

but i also heard that the graphite chassis is a bit thicker then the original chassis and might have a hard time fitting the battery pack on the chassis!

No thats not true! Its a perfect fix. All chassies if they are not milled right with not fix correctly. I buying them! For this price, its going to be a lot cheaper then what Hpi will offer then for. Look for front metal shocks and ball diff in the next round of from Eagle-Racing..............

My cat heads for the hills when I throw down my micro. I don't even have to have the car on when the cat runs for her life. It's just too much fun to watch.

Where did you here this rumer? I am hearing the opposite about the fitting of the carbon chassy. People are saying it might be to thin and might break in the rear if hit too hard. People are very happy to see these carbon decks coming out. And So am I.

I use 7 cell 750mah nicad . I run it for 10 minutes then stop to prevent burning out my motor.
A lot of people here using 5 cell 1600mah nickel metalhydride burned out there stock motors.

its getting crazy here, prices are dropping to 7900 yen or $68.00 US dollars. The micro rs4 is sure not going over well in Japan.

Jarrod is planning to use this track for the Hobbypeople microrace at Encino soon. They've been racing 2 times already at their parking lot by they were just using dots though. We're gonna be racing everynight . You guys can do it. We only spent $40 for this track....and we still have a lot of spare pvc pipes to make a micro-crystal park track.
