Lol now I can't stop picturing fart blower minis. Can you hear it now.

That's about the only thing left working and I eat a lot of burritos. Game on.

Once again, I've said too much.

Also, I've ordered everything but the DJCs.

OMG now I can hear you over here. Burrito Monkey power!

Any ideas as to when Canadian Hobby Shops will see the M07? Wanting to try it on the asphalt track since I can gear it up to feel a little faster on a open asphalt track.

So after moving the ESC to the other side of the chassis, I was able to get the L/R balance pretty close. Still need to tinker with a couple of things but very encouraging thus far.

Thanks for the tips everyone.

Very nice that is almost 50/50 should help balance the steering out a lot. Let us know how it does. My esc is on top of the battery compartment im thinking i think it may be worth that little change.
