I read some build tutorial somewhere where the guy was using one. He had to solder the wires onto the motor with the motor out of the car.

Enough of a pain in the ass that I chose not to get one.

Solder the female ends to the wires and plug them in before placing the motor in the pod. They have very little clearance when done. The motor does run well though. Paired with a Reventon S and +20 timing board, it runs cool and is competitive. I have 2 set up like this and dont regret it.

It actually fits almost perfect to the C-car wheelbase. I had the body originally on an F104 which is shorter.

Yeah, where can I get that Nissan body at? I'll order one today.

I ran the Speed Passion motor in mine without soldering the bullets. It is a tight fit but if you mount the motor correctly it fits nice and snug. I'll see if I have any pictures of it from this summer, the car is currently roller status.

Here is a shot of our first ever all LM-1 race Such a blast!



There are more people with cars, but this is the most we've had at the track at one time... so far

Also, so far it's looking like the Peugeot body is much more durable than the Audi. Several of us have ordered the Peugeot, so hopefully we'll have more information soon.

The Peugeot body seems to be quite rugged as compared to the horror stories I've heard of the Audi. I did reinforce the front end of the body with Shoe Goo and drywall tape. It does have a lot of wing pieces though.

Just a suggestion regarding reinforcing bodies, DO NOT use the open mesh fiberglass from Home Depot or Lowe's. That stuff does very little. Try "wing joining tape" in the aircraft section of the hobby shop. That stuff is intended to be structural. I put Shoe Goo (or E6000) down first and then use a body filler blade to squeegee the fiberglass on top.
