Congrats to Chicky for a great showing @ THE GATE!
If you have time post your setup, might be interesting for some guys here in europe too.

Wow that's awesome Steve!! By looking at the lap times I'd say it looked like you were cheating! Maybe its safe to say this car is like cheating!!!

What rear axle is everybody running? And also its pretty hard to put a car together with out a parts list of extras that you will need to complete the car or a sheet of instructions. For $200 you would think they would include those

Just curious if anybody has mapped out what all the holes are for?

there are some that look to be inline battery locators (a screw and nut), but next to those there are additional ones whose purpose baffles me.

maybe it has to do with the 5th battery position? i presume this is a fwd transverse battery with all electronics behind?

The holes in the servo area are for futaba and ko, Jr, and the new sanwa. The holes in the center behind the servo holes are for the center top deck post either front or back for battery position. When you run the battery forward you need to use 3mm shims under the top deck and use the shock tower that angles down. That raises the top deck up so the battery will go under it.

The holes in either side of the center ones are for 3mm nuts to keep the battery from moving forward. Then the holes on the sides are to keep the battery from moving out. there are 2 positions for that depending on how heavy your battery and electronics are will depend where you put the battery to balance out the car evenly.

Then the 3 center holes are for the crc battery holder in case you want to run the battery the old way in the rear.

Hope that helps

Just got an OP105 kit for the Serpent and I am a bit confused, does the kit come with the standoffs for the rear cross braces? as mine only had three for the front brace.

Thanks for any help.

For the serpent kit you'll need to get 2 more serpent standoffs for the rear. Or you can get these which match the front standoffs.

what servo mounts do you suggest for KO JR or sanwa? are the holes all set for the R5 servo mount or something else?

The R5 servo mounts work really well with those servos. For the Sanwa the tabs on the servo can be mounted to the chassis.

Default Hallwoeen race update and New color available!

Hey Guys!

Just a little update on the Halloween Race.

We had the most cars in the Mod A-main. 4 Cars qualifying 3,4,5 and 7th, Finishing 2,4,8 and 9th. I finished about 3 feet behind the leader. It was an exciting race!

For 13.5 I qualified and finished second Steve Dunn qualified and finished 10th.

Since the car is a conversion we have had a lot of requests to use a more universal color to match other brand components. We chose BLACK. Orange will still be available! Black be available in a few weeks!. I'll have some pictures on line in a few days.

Also the website is coming along, we are super happy with it!

Next stop, US Indoor Champs where we will be the sponsor for the Mod 12th scale class.
