A couple more pics and a very short video - (3-4 seconds) - one of my RC18's buzzing the camera at 60+ mph. The car in the video is powered by a Mamba ESC, Dynamite C4-9200kv motor and 3 cell 1320mah Thunder Power Lipo's = Motor is turning at over 102,000 rpm at full throttle - Losi pre-glued foams on all 4.

Click here for video...

Enjoy...

Yeah they are the pro-line velocity rims they fit on with amost no mods you just need some MI hex adaptors they can be found on http://www.rcmart.com/catalog/defaul...th=144_653_696I use the first ones by 3-racing. As you can see on my car the shafts do stick out a bit but nothing you cant fix with a trusty dremel

well my crimefighter tires and rims got here fo my rc18b, the tires are as wide as the buggy fronts. the rims are bigger dia. then assoc. rims and with the tires mounted they are just slightly taller than the stock ae tires. i can't wait till i get the hex adapters (waiting for the shipment from hk) the tires should last much longer than the stock ones. when i get the adapters i will post how much the width gets changed with these new rims.

if you can get it to fit in a 18b there is no reason why you could use the qc2, voltage is the same and amp draw is less. so the speedo would just run cooler.
