Thanks. I thought the body looks like a Protoform but I was wrong then.

It does look slightly like the speed12, however the 12 has a very narrow cockpit where as the 8hd still has that broad cockpit. Also the 8hd has the little cutouts toward the front of the cockpit on each side.

OK I will remove the heatsink then instead of buying another ESC.

For the servo one of the Savox servos is on the way to me, if the heli guys are right this will be the same as a Futaba 9650 with some improvements. This means middlepart of the case made from aluminium and extended voltage range. Beside this same specs and dimensions as the 9650.

After searching on the Net Iīm still unsure what tires to choose for carpet. I donīt want buying a box of tires right at the beginning. Is there a tire combination what should work on any carpet track? I think we will have medium to highbite carpet from what I hear. As for brand I will go with Jacos, these seem well priced and the easiest to find here. Any suggestions? If this is important I will run a 9.5T brushless as this is the new spec motor here replacing the 19T brushed now. But should be somewhat faster than 19T I think.
Jaco Prism Lilac front and Yellow rear work well on carpet.

Jason Thanks. If I want running one of the pink series tires also for the rear, which one would be the best choice then Magenta or Double Pink?

Thanks for the explanation. Regarding handling what is the difference from the Speed 12 to the Speed 8 or Speed 8HD?
I think I have to learn a lot again with 1/12th after that long time, itīs all so different now. Regarding bodies I just remember on the TOJ and Schkee back in the days.
