what's wrong with the mondeo? i think its cool!!! ok how's abt this... myx and jzone get the accord... me and chrisman get the mondeo ... and call it RCLAB team A & B, but who will be in in the A????

my other choice would a bmw 3 series hpi or protoform

let me know...
Andy's or Yokomo Stratus handles the best, but I am sick of them. They are just all over the tracks.

Mondeo looks great IMO.

Default What is stock spur gear?

I am running a 26 tooth black 48 pitch robinson's aluminum pinion. I have been known to buy dry ice and strap it to the motor can when I race so that I can keep it cool and the effeciency up.

Default Protoform

I agree, the Stratus is everywhere.
I use a ProtoForm 300M. It has 'almost' the same steering characteristivs of the Stratus, but has a lower roof line and raked front end, giving better top end 'efficiency'. I am now going to try the new ProtoForm BMW M3 Coupe, it is sweet looking.
If you are looking for an import body with great handling, take a look at the ProtoForm Volvo S60! It has very similar characteristics of the Dodge Stratus, but cleaner looking.

Default Ran my old Vauxhall Vectra body today

Car ran great. Only problem was with batteries moving around. I really don't like having the shrink wrap that is on my cells. I think that it keeps the chassis from getting a good grip on the cells. Was very fast with my MVP. Cut it today and put in new brushes.

it is the cap in your esc, it is probablly broken. you can also check the cap on the motor and your reciever.

i just put on new capacitors and got a ultra torque hitec servo with dual BB and metal gears, i decided i am going to send my radio back and have it looked at, since it is still under warranty. I have an XR3 and if anyone runs it have you ever had this problem? thanks
