I gota ask...what's the blue string with the bow tie for?

And would a 4S lipo be smaller and lighter than the A123 packs you have?

Also something like this could be easier to mount and it only weighs 450 grams:

1/I use a123 batterys because:

the lipos only have 400 discharge of live, is very dangerous if you have a problem/error, are veryyyyy expensive, the charger time is very long, .......

the a123 batterys have a live of more 1000discharge, the a123 is not dangerous because is very very hard, is more cheap, in 20minutes the battery is charged in the charger, have 30c discharge....... FOR ME IS THE BEST BATTERYS

2/the chassis is very hard, I dont had any problem with the chassis.

3/in youtube I have 2 videos with my zx5 (only 1 motor) and the car arrvive at 70mph (I dont have videos of the zx5 with 2 motors):

I can't believe you went through all that effort, and ruined the voltage with the home electrics screw terminals....

Can we have a video of the smash??
