Has anyone used mini 1/18 scale 2 cell li-po packs in their car? How do they hold up? Thanks

Inserts for F104 tires discussion...

What companies make them or what have you been using\doing to get your tires to hookup?

Mike, which 1/18 pack are you running? I'm looking to get the exotek chassis kit for the F104 and would like to experiment with different battery setups.

I'm not Mike, but I have made 8 minute runs with the A Main Hobbies/Protek 1800 pack and the Duratrax 1800. I think they are probably the same FWIW

Both - For medium and high grip asphalt. I am thinking offroad foam might work well.
