Default Do I need receive pack (trans am)?

I am building a trans am car with my old xray t1. I have a cyclone tc2 and some 27 turn motors. Running 4 cell nimh do I need to run the little receiver pack like the 12th scale guys. Also where can you purchase them and is their a lipo option.

As long as you have a decent radio system and your personal still scores you should be fine without a receiver pack.

We seldom use a receiver pack in 12th now unless we're running mod.

to use a lipo you must use a 21.5 novak brushless.

Motor Specifications:
Option 1: 27-turn ROAR stock motor: No FDR limit, bearings are not allowed.

Option 2: 17.5 brushless: Motor timing advance is allowed. 12.5 mm rotor diameter maximum (no "tuning" rotors are allowed).

Option 3: 21.5 brushless with 2C LiPo: Novak SS21.5 Pro brushless motor (pn:3421) ONLY combined with any ROAR-approved hard-cased 2C 7.4v LiPo pack up to and including 5000 mAh capacity. Novak motor is the ONLY motor allowed at this time, because there are no ROAR mandates or restrictions for the 21.5 brushless motors. All house track rules regarding LiPo usage apply. Final drive ratio is to not exceed 4.2. Motor timing advance is allowed. 12.5 mm rotor diameter maximum (no "tuning" rotors are allowed).

I think he meant lipo rx pack...

you shouldnt need one. i know tons of people who run 27t/brushed with varying qualities of electronics, and none have issues w/o a rx pack
