If you didn't know this please change it. If you knew this, please change it. And calling it "Roadkill Productions" is in really poor taste.
May I explain my-self?
Both answers above ARE CORRECT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You'd think there's no excuse, but I am the dumb a$$ exception...
I had no clue what I was about to do when I made this vid last night. Today I saw my friend whom is extreamly knowledgable about racing that I ever could be advised me AFTER seeing it said "You're probably gonna catch some ish for that one still you have in there.'' I didn't even know wich sene he was refering to. He kindly explained what I had did.

I went home, honestly foregetting about what he said, not knowing the repercushions of my stupid video.

I got home to see any action here, and BOOM! So again everybody, I'm so terribly sorry for what I did. Most of all, I hope everyone foregives me, and realizes that I truely, and honestly made a horrific mistake.
I'm crushed right now! NOw I know what I did wrong. And for that I am doing my best to rectify this nightmare causing error.

I DID DELETE AND REMOVE SAID VIDEO FROM YOUTUBE, AND FROM MY OWN PERSONAL VID STASH.
As far as me having poor judgement, calling my productions "RoadKill", I can not honestly apologize for a mere coincidence.Attachment 523998 As you can see, I bought this decal set on-line, it fits my personality, and its plastered all over my 103. Sure my production name is forever stained as the guy who don't know squat, but on that last comment, I feel I have the burden of proof on this only note. Still, I feel terrible about what has happened, and I apologize.

Sure, start w/ the small spur gear, B compound rubbs in the rear, a 19t equiv motor, some kind of sauce on your stock foams up front.

Clear the stones and leaves, and you should be GOLD.

Example:
+ YouTube Video

Enjoy, I almost forgot, I'm not running my 104 in this one, but I have vertually the same stinger set-up on my Pro.

Hi, I'm after suggestions for a good reliable speed controller for brushless motor's that will fit nicely in the F104.

Our club has announced plans around motor combos to be used from 2010, and it focus's around 17.5t and 21.5t brushless and 27t Brushed motor's.

I would like to buy a reasonably priced esc that I could use to run initially 21.5 then progress to 17.5 as my driving ability increase's.

It doesn't have to be cutting edge, just does a job job for a good price.

I think the Tekin RS is probably the best bet. I use them in my TA05's due to their small footprint. Have run them in 21.5 / 17.5 / 13.5 touring car classes and have been very happy with the performance.

Thanks for that Jimmy, I was thinking of this as a starting point.

Working on mounting electronics and a couple things have up. The first is the battery. I have 3 different batteries i am trying, Orion 3800, Reedy 5000 and a Common Sense 5200. All use the top side, bullet connectors. I saw that some people plug in the battery then slide the plug and wire between the chassis and the battery, no room on the 5000s, I want the 5000s for the run time but do i need it and what can i expect for run time from a say a 5k or a 3.8k with a silvercan?
pics for examples
Orion in chassis


Reedy in chassis


Common Sense in Chassis


Next is the ESC and RX. Are you guys skipping the electronic trays and just mounting on the side of the chassis? do you build an extra little shelf for them to sit on?
Have you guys tried these locations? I like the top idea but room may be an issue.
On the side

On top


Then how do you get this to sit on that little bit of room on the edge?


Then with both of these battery changes become a nightmare. Should i just go with a battery that fits well with the swing out shelves installed? What would be these batteries?

Thanks for any tips hope this wasn't too many pics, just easier to get the point across

I hope these help...

As you can see, I feel those side mounts are the way to go. My Tekin fits nicely, as well as my Traxxas reciever.

And these two kinda show how I wiered her up.

My battery choice happens to be a Racers Edge 4400 6cell NIc, I love it. Believe it or not and some will argue, but I seem to have alot of lap time, and our course is pretty long.

One more thing, those posts that hold my battery in, yah they suck BUT, I only use the rear one. I leave the front out, if I'm not mistaken, I can finess tha bat right past the swivel point to exit the bat, if that makes sence.

That does help, thanks. What batteries do you run? Do they fit OK?
