Default batteries for Stallion

Can stick packs be used or do they have to be saddle packs ?

and also imafter a really neat esc and receiver setup whats the best layout for ballance and looks(using a futaba hrs receiver and speedpassion speedy) so there not the smallest of parts

chad,

I have machined a steel plate to offset my lipo and make the lipo + plate assembly weight the same as a normal pack and it works great.

I guess you could use stick packs. Just make sure you secure them to the chassis well. The car does not use saddle packs. It's designed for side by side 5 or 6 cell packs. I'm running Orion LiPo's in mine.

Well get the Shin version built! It's MUCH better than the old car! I too am using a steel LiPo plate that offsets the battery a touch to help balance the car. As far as electronics go, I'm running the Futaba 9451 servo, Futaba HRS receiver, Hacker motors, Orion speedo and batteries. Everything fits very nicely and it looks very clean. I'll take some pics tonight it you want.

Just to let you know that I've TQ'd the fourth round of the British Indoors Winter Series this sunday with the Shin.

This is on low to medium grip rubberised running floor with Vtec 27s as the control tyres. I expect this setup to be a good basic asphalt setup and will have it posted on the Petit RC setup sheet database soon.

This car looks pretty nice and intuitive. I want to know everything that Ivan mentioned, as well.

I purchase my parts from Speedtech.com and Kyoshousa.com. They carry everything you should need.

I still run the Stallion with great success here in Austin,Texas.USA(parking lot). The only parts I wear out are the blades for the axles, the pivot bushings and cvd's.

Hope that helps,
Joe

I've been running the car (Stallion Shin) pretty much non stop for the last 5 months on carpet. It's really a great car. Comes down to driver skill. Drive blades are a common wear part, as well as the aluminum drive shafts. I've piled it into the wall a few times and the only things that break are the front suspension arms. Overall the car is great! I did have a few runs on asphalt, but never got a setup on it that I felt was good. Just never had the time. I'll be running it at Carpet Nats in March and I'm fairly confident it will do well. See my setup that I posted above for carpet for a good starting point.
