Another thing to consider is that the novak speed control can only accept 7 cells.

The new HV controller can handle 12-14 I believe so that would be worth considering (gonna make for an interesting fit though)

are you going to be using mini tires and wheels or what, you will need to use foams and then still you will get way to much wheel spin

and another thing, if a 380 or whatever size brushless motor that fits in those things from Mamba is almost too much power, what do you think the Novak is going to be, sounds like a cool idea, but not too doable, I would like to see you prove me wrong

Default thanks for the tips

I'm going to make my chassis from scratch and sheet metal, and if this thing doesn't cost too much (under $900) i'll probably make a rtr mini dragster
