i guess you can leave the two then right? cus if you cut off the last two.. might affect it negatively somehow? i dont know.. this is all speculation on my part. if you do try it, can you please let us know?

thanks.

thanks

i was waiting for a 415 but got convinced to buy a mi2 instead. it basically has no rotating mass other then the tires, u can press down on the belt lightly with 1 finger and turn the whole drive train. its incredible

Just tossed some old tires on my 415 and took some pics today.







Maybe I can test it out this weekend. Depends though since we are still racing on carpet...

Then that would be one less hop-up to sell!

Great looking car man,

Actually the grey shocks are flourine coated (pardon the spelling if it is wrong) whereas the blue shocks are the normal ones.

Changing to the blue shocks will be a downgrade not an upgrade.

Cheers

Nice car Kilruf... That's exactly how I'm envisioning my setup to be including electronics but less the pink wire ! Nice to see how the LRP Q2 and Futaba gear fits in this thing... now, I just need to wait patiently for mine to come in... I can't wait!
