Hi Guys,

We finally got our shipment of the M18s in. They'll be on our website tonight.

Sorry about the vid guys, it never occured to me that everybody doesn't use windows!

I am using six Kan 1050mah cells and the 17 tooth gear. I have tried all the gears and the 17(smallest pinion) is the only one that doesn't burn the motor up! I have heard that an option Spur gear will be released about the same time as the six cell chassis and the Big Block motor plate. I personally can't wait for the Carbon upgrade parts to come out. The stock chassis really flexes a lot and I think the car will be even faster with a rigid chassis.

I wonder if the harder chassis is actually good. I see these hopped up HPI's with stiff graphite chassis and the car is virtually undrivable--they cannot go in the straight line without spinning out.

Haha- I guess you haven't seen the Micros I race against! We are close to doing 1/10th scale stock lap times.

how close is the BigBlock to the shaft with the smallest pinion? do the two rub at all?...how is the gear mesh?

thanks..

The Big Block is as close to the shaft as it can get without rubbing! I can actually fit a piece of paper between the motor and the shaft and that is about it. When they come out with a bigger spur it will be a bit better. The gear mesh is perfect!
