That red is sweeet. I'd like to do that to my car, but i'd like to do all black anodizing.

You don't have to tell me the prices up there. Up until last December, I travelled a lot on business and I've seen the prices.

Without any exageration, I can honestly say that I haven't had one glitch since I bought the used M8 with a fairly new spektrum setup. I've ran it at our indoor carpet track, two outdoor parking lot asphalt tracks and in front of my house where all of our electrical wiring is underground and it has worked flawlessly. "Glitching" has almost been wiped from my vocabulary.

Jason,

How much material does the anodizing add to each surface area? Is the difference in the top deck height measureable?

anodizing adds pretty much no material, this is b/c it is just corroding and not the adding of material. anodizing is controlled corrosion on the outer layer of the aluminum.

Dado,

I run a 26 on a tight track and a 27 tooth pinion on a larger track with the 112 spur.
