Setup.

Electronics:
GM V12 esc
Epic binary 2 10 turn motor
Futaba radio system
Hitec HS-81MG servo
cp-1300 battery pack

Aluminum stuff (in purple):
Front upper blukhead
front knuckles
front dogbones
front body posts
rear body posts
front shocks
rear vcs shock
front ball diff

cabon fiber stuff:
penguin 3500lm chassis
Penguin upper deck
penguin rear deck
aktionrc motor plate (for the 540 motor)
rear shock mount (custom made)

Other stuff:
rear ball diff with purple aluminum parts
hard foams in front
soft foams in rear
large foam bumper (purple)
long white body pins
28 tooth pinion

Body:
Protoform Alfa Romeo 2.0

He'll need to make some custom parts, or just by the conversion kit from www.aktionrc.com (I think that's it)

Also, he woun't be able to really drive it on a tennis court, too small and not enough traction. That's were I used to drive my micro for fun.

It goes over 70mph with this setup right now.

I printed the setup. I give it to him tomorrow. Is that Epic a 10 turn motor a single, double, triple, or quad?

He has a Novak Spy as his ESC, good enough?

The tennis court here is made of rubber and it was once a dual court. the hobby/craft shop on post took the nets and pipes out of the court to accomodate a rather large course; big enough to run nitro! They just don't get the funding they want from the government to built a better track.

Oh, by the way........we are in the Army, and the race course is on a military installation!

Shows ya how many soldiers races r/c......... We even got an off-road course in Balad, Iraq!

I don't race off-road.....But I drift every now and then!

The motor is a single, it's the new motors with 4 magnets on the can, so it has higher rpms.

The spy esc can't handle a 540 motor, so he'll need a esc that can handle a mod 540 motor, my GM V12 esc can go down to a 7 turn motor, but I use a 10 turn just to be safe.

I used to race my micro on a dual court too.

Also, if I add 4 more cells to the battery pack it will get it to about 120mph, and yes people have got there micros over 100mph.

I'm not the one that "went over 100mph" that's what I heard.

HEY. Pballkid, why don't you stop posting here if you don't like this thread.

Also, if you want to prove me wrong, send me $50 to buy a new battery pack (since they are custom made). If you don't want to do that, stop saying it isn't possibly, because you can't prove it know. So far I've proved everyone wrong by how fast my car goes now.

My charger only chargers up to 8 cells, so I would only be able to reach around 100mph.

Also, futureal, why don't you make that magazine article on a 540 micro?

Why do you think they have wings? They have a purpose, if you didn't know.

My car has lots of down force, so it won't lift off the ground.

Well, I thought will something that light, something should send it flying. A small bump maybe?
