Looks nice. What was used for the shortened front belt?

have not test it yet,........... look promising all you have to do to strengthen the join plate.........use carbon fiber should do it.............with transmission well if you want to put 20 pinion on the rear you have to do a little drill so the motor pinion can get close enough to internal gear. Maximum size m03m pinion is 20 and m04 is 21 so far i put 20 and 21 just see how it goes.............

I found on rc-mini and printed that article a few months ago because it was talking about a Muchmore stickpack equaliser or discharger, when I go on their website I can't find that item, has it been discontinued?

Has anyone experimented with that?

Did you have good results?



By the way Calvin I found some fuel line for my shocks so the MINI will have its maiden trip next saturday (I'm getting my new wheels on thursday).

Thanks again for all the help you guys are so nice to newcomers!

Ive used these before when i had stick packs and it was really good. Great punch out of the packs but i found that i could only use them once a day at that level. Having to cut holes in the sides of the packs is a bit of a hazard and Be careful not to short out your packs like i did once. Harris Rc have them listed as in stock but I'd get some lipos though. Much better solution if your series allows it....

Starteur:

I've just bought one, and noticed a improvement on my packs especially the cheaper un-branded cell packs! I've got a pack of CHEAP 1500mah cells, and they would only charge to 1100mah bought a Stick pack equaliser and now they take just over 1600mah .


A bit expensive (probably buy a cheapish Li-po for the price!!), but
well worth it!

See this?..



It's a Mini (Tims Mini actually) going 85km/h, that's why it's a little blurry. And also it's about 10mm OFF the track.
On the r/hand side picture is the very next lap. And it's about 100cm+ off the track now!

Want to see more? Go here to see the pics and video from Velodrome '09 today
