Hit a new best today with the mini motor. No modified rear wing, no front wing/splitter, no lowered suspension.

C1515, 26/32, 6S = 85.4 mph / 137.5 kmh

0verkill, I have ordered the following TBone front and rear bumpers. I was wondering what model wheelie bar you put on your ET48?

1 x 57007 - TBR 1/8 NM Front Bumper - Tekno ET48
1 x 57010 - TBR 1/8 NM2 Rear Bumper - Tekno ET48

0verKill,

From the pictures you posted a couple pages back with the Willie Bar the following looks like it but it does not say if it comes with the mounting hardware. Is this the one you have on your ET48 and did it come with mounting hardware?

Made a few aero changes.

25mm sleeve spacer on the shock shaft.


No more nose up, let's bring it way down. Also opened up the rear wing.

New best today! Aerodynamics made a HUGE difference. I picked up 8.7 mph with those 2 changes.

94.1 mph / 151.5 kmh

Quick ESC question for you. A pretty popular youtube speed run guy has recently raised the issue of the MMX cutting power on 6s. I was wondering if you're seeing some issues. I'm assuming not because it seems like you're having good success with yours.

Very awesome and 2 very inspiring builds!! I'm putting together 2 et48.3s exactly the same way for exactly the same reasons. 94 mph is crazy fast w a big tired truggy! No doubt lighter, narrower wheels/tires will improve top speed DRAMATICALLY (but not as badass looking!) Not sure what options are out there for 17mm. Been waiting for you to start lowering and messing w aerodynamics. Science ALWAYS wins in the game of speed! Cool trick on the shock shaft too! Never thought about shimming from the inside.
Keep it up! Very nice work!
