Penguin RC

http://www.penguinrc.com/

Mine is a custom made version off of the P3500LM that Penguin R/C makes. It costed $110.00 to get 2 of those made of off the oringal P3500LM chassis. So you can't get the itaxct chassis you see in the pics. Only the P3500LM.

I dont think you want me to answer that question cause yes it does look silly! but that is just my opion you probably car drive the car on a carpet track for a full 5 min with out making it flip. and that is why its silly! just too small to be a "Good" racing platform.

my using 12 different adjustment plates for carpet, pavement, whatever. I run 2100mah AA, 6 of them that's an hour run time, also 1050mah Zapped Kans cells and a Tuned, broken in and lubed, speed 300.

Its worth jealousy.

"just too small to be a "Good" racing platform"

RandyB - I know what you mean. I have a 1/24th and it's a joke, I don't even run it anymore.... Alot of the fun for me is setup, limited tuning options = limited fun, in my book.

A HPI Micro uses almost everything a 1/10 scale does, those only thing it does have is adjustable shocks, caber, etc.

I mean you have the rear chassis to setup, rear shock, tires foams, tire compount, wieght issue's, bearing issues, ball diff ball issues, one-way, front ball diff, or stock diff issues, electronic issues, battery issues, custom made issues for the micro, um what type of greese, chassis your going to get, alloy or plastic, what color, lots of stuff!
