Not at the moment. I am out of town for work and wont be back for at least a week. Will try to get them up as soon as I get back. Turned out really well but I also use very small electronics ( Futaba 9550 servo, Tekin RS Pro, Mini spektrum receiver, Duo2). I even shorten qll my wires to minimize the weight on the left side. also run the TP 5000 40c lipo.

Ya you put in some hella strong runs! See ya soon Im sure. By the way if you took any pics of the track would you please post them. I intended to but my memory card appears to be on the blink. I figure people would like to see that monster layout and giving Mikes a little exposure wouldnt hurt either.

Were you running the foam or rubber car? I'd be very interested in seeing your setup as I'm on the fence about which car to get foam or rubber for running rubber on carpet.

just about everyone has a rubber car and there are a few foam cars out there now. most of the guys with the rubber cars have upgraded some parts to make it perform the way they want.

if you get a rubber kit you'll most likely get the foam lipo chassis, and foam top deck.

if you get a foam kit you'll most likely get the spool, rubber wings, and the foam lipo chassis.

now keep in mind none of these extra parts are mandatory but it make the car perform just that very little bit better.

if you're on the fence about what brand car to get, don't hesitate to get the photon it's like a work of art! (and i have very high standards)

This is about the best answer I have seen yet! Definitely give consideration to what class or classes you will be running as well.

Uh, yep!

If you will run all high traction carpet with foam tires, get the foam car.

If you run a mixture of asphalt and carpet with rubber tires, get the rubber car.

The Foam sedan class just did not get a showing. 17.5 Rubber was weak also. But the 13.5 Rubber class was solid!
