What ever happened to that full carbon fibered chassis HPI had that was in RC car action a while back? What, did they wreck it? If not, I'll buy that!!!! [/B]
That's what I wanna know. Those Pancake cars were SWEET!!! Full carbon fiber monocoque chassis and all that. I remember Car Action did an article about insane speed run cars many years back and they had that car, Lett's 10L, Clausens "streamliner", and one more I think. Damn I wish I had kept that issue.

Have you seen a micro lately? Yeah, it's smaller and lighter. So your wrong there.

And I ask you guys to wait till today when my new stuff is suposed to come in so I can make a new video for you guys, so how out you shut up till I get the video.

Well, I like adding a little nitro to this fire. ajg, your grammar is a little off. The comment should be "So, you're wrong there", not "So your wrong there".

I'm just trying to help you out, that's all. At some point, you will likely have to get a job, and a decent one to buy all the goodies. I will surmise that you'll (not youl) have to use proper grammar.

Thanks, guess I didn't check over it. And for buying all those goodies. I already bought them. I'm probably not going to buy anything else for my cars after this.

So put the beatdown on the UPS guy! I really want to see a video...

Any velodromes around your area? Maybe you could hit even higher speeds there.

The company I bought it from said it was going to be here today. Also, is the velodrome, the thing that was on the video. I could search on google for one.

YOUR TIRE S ARE TIO SMALL PLAIN AND SIMPLE..

if u take a 12th scale car versus a 10th scale car, because of tire size u can get a faster top speed out of them.. 12th is smaller lighter, and they use the same motor and batteries...

they also are lighter so they tak flight at a lower speed... getting and rc car over 100mph is not easy to do... and if u scale it down to 1/18th scale it makes it that much more tuff...


it isnt posible... i dont care if u have a 2 turn brushless system.. it wont happen

your given gear ratio wont do it... in theory the same ratio in a 10th scale should have a higher top speed... your tires are bigger wich makes for a higher final drive ratio....


do me a favor and measure your tire size in inches.... and tell me your pinion and spur gear.. i will figure out your gear ratio.... math dont lie...

the biggest complaint i your claims... u have no proof.. how can u claim something u have no idea on.. a spped meter is not an actual speed meter....only Proof will shut us up.. and whenn u do the vid with the radar gun i want to see the gun register as the car goes by.... not a shot after , like u did it on a real car and then claimed it was off the micro...
