I run a Fantom Racing ION motor. 17.5 I had to shave just a hair off the belt tensioner as well to just fit the motor. I just bought a plastic one and it works great. The Fantom Ion motor is supposed to be the same motor as the Epic Duo 2's. So I knew from a previous thread that this would have to be done.

Updates. Last weekend ran at a local track that I had never been to before. It is a low/medium traction asphalt. After talking with the sorex guys, it appears as I was running the wrong tire compound. I was running 36's cause everyone else was. I went to the 28's and was stuck to the track. I ran this setup: http://www.petitrc.com/reglages/team...ly20090426.pdf

When I was running the sorex 36's, I had alot of tailspinout. I also had my esc setup with alot of dragbrake and 70% power profile. Took all but 10% drag brake out and set the power profile to like 45%. Alot easier to drive! And with the right tires, I finally got to see my car drive well! Awesome car. Getting alot of comments on my abilities improving. But with the car setup right, it makes it just so darn easy to drive! I will however be increasing the power as ability permits. Would like to be able to drive mod class one day. But so far, all suggestions were awesome and the combination of getting the spring set and borrowing a setup board and tools, I couldn't be happier with my car! Thanks guys, Vinny

We were running 2 - 5 minute qualifiers and 1-6 minute main. By the end of the last race, at 5 minutes I had gained a lap and a half, 22 seconds, from my 1st race. Granted, I got used to it, the track that is, but making the proper changes from everyones input, 1 at a time made a world of difference. I got in as much practice as I could and am now not totally hitting everything! Allmost got the whole "drive in the center of the track and slower is faster" nailed! So, getting there! Vinny

Sounds good Vinny I'm happy you enjoyed the car. It is true once the car is set up it's fast and very easy to drive.

I have not started yet. This weekend is rebuild weekend since we will be hit with 24 inches of snow, so I will do it then. It would be nice to run Duos and Orion motors. Wolf has a shipment for me and it should be here tomorrow.

Did the belt tension mount. Motor has a lot room to move now. See the space between the motor and rear pulley. Happy that I can basically use any motor. It was one of two minor things I did not like about the car.

Default Younger son is happier

My younger son felt like his wiring was messy...not entirely sure the coiling is a good idea... "but the BIG boys do it dad!!"

So here it is...

Shortened fan wire, shortened ESC->RX.. oh.. and an OUTLAW ORION 10.5! It keeps him smilin at the back of the field and he still loves his E4

Did you just Dremel the stock plastic tensioner a good amount or make your own?
