Default Will this work?


I built a tiny third channel module holder


NOTE: itís not glued so i still have room to edit it.


Please let me know if aluminum would work better.


Drive safely

Glad i dropped in for a look.
Mines been in the box since cannibalizing the electronics to another car. But just dug it out after finding a brand new Flux MMH-4000 motor and EMH-3S speed controller on ebay for less then $85.
I'm still surprised at the lack of part availability. Pulled the Hoonicorn body off to more or less save it from wear and tear since you can only find them on ebay for over $100 and have been running TC bodies with foams, would love to run a Flux body with those wide foams, especially since it's almost impossible to find the wheels and tires for it. Hell, if any one knows of good offset foams that fit something like the spec 5 body that would be great too.

Which castle fan is that?
i wasnt that smart. I wrecked the front of mine

I believe the max Ride Height is 7 - 8mm with the shocks.
(taller tires or taller wheels will raise the chassis)

Either the gearing was wrong on the HPI or the Tamiya driver was way better.

While I can see where you're trying to go with it I think you need more controlled elements between the cars, (Motor, ESC, FDR, Body, maybe servo) to give a true comparision of chassis vs chassis rather than build vs build
