Been very busy today. still at office at this time. work at home and work at office last night.

Use it to run stock then...... 23T is really fun when you have a few cars together!! Not so critical on tires or setup!

at least, metal shock body, foam bumper, TI screws and misc metal parts what will make the car cost over 2000 !!

I'm still using the Corally can, I don't think it is as bad as people make it out to be!

As for armature I still like the 11x2 gold for PYC at the moment. I tried out a 11x3 silver last night it was also quite good. A very even torque curve across the RPM range. The 11x2 is softer low end torque and crazy mid to high end. I still have a 10x2 silver, 10x3 gold, 9x2 silver and 8x2 silver I need to try out!

You like your Ti screws don't you?! I think the YM34 looks better... even more so if you polish the purple off!
