I have plenty in stock. Mine is built & ready to race. We will race them in my store (that's right, I said 'in my store'). Probably on Sundays...starting next week.
Have run mine a bit on my track & it handles quite well. Not as 'tippy' as expected.
What-up Espo? Heard you moved to tx. Ran into your old racin' buddy (Garcia) at Leisure.
Motorman, want to mod one? ha ha... Cool little buggers, seem to have a 'wet' nose though.

This would be a perfect application for the VXR Racing lipo receiver battery and regulator. It is small and extremly light weight and would fit in the car really nice.

Nice car! Why don't you make the receiver battery as flat pack? Then put the receiver on top of the 3 cells behind the servo. I think this way can lower the CG a bit (a lot in a small car like this).

I thought about that, but seems like the CG on the other side is high because of the engine, etc ..there is really no way to fix "tweek" on the car so seems ike goint that route would tweek it farther than it already is to the left (I can't imagine the weight on the left of the car is anywhere near the right of the car right now).

Default Foams?

Are those foams?

We found HPI med hard rubber front, softer rears worked on carpet.

Won't be long till the tuners start moding that motor!

Default Bat Pack protection?

Ever thought of stuffing the battery pack in a kid's balloon
to keep it clean? - I do that on my 1/10 nitros - 1cent
solution.

I know *nothing* about nitro ...yea someone said I should also put the recvr in a baloon. Not sure about tire wear, only broke it in so far and ran about a 1/2 tank through it in the parking lot in front of our carpet track, carpet track owner would probably KILL me if I ran it on his carpet!

...oh dude, sorry about the fuel leak

or better yet

I ran mine today for over 2 hours. I finaly managed to break the throttle servo, a Hitech, but I've stripped the gears out of 2 of those too. I was running without a body and when I rolled it, it hit the arm just right I guess. I like the little thing. Has some good speed and corners alot better than I thought it would. I have to get the body done now. I've mounted the Mazda 6 body up and just need some paint to finnish it up, but it will have to wait to run it again when the gears come in. The reason I had to replace the servo is that one of the original servo's in the kit came DOA and I am waiting for a reply from Xray in TX on it. I will be putting the orginal back in it as soon as I get a respone/replacement from Xray. So far, I'm running 30% in it and engine runs about 190-200deg. I've had to recharge the battery pack 3 times I ran it so much.

3 hours to build and an hour at idle to break in. That little motor runs forever on a tank it seems. I was getting 15min of play time on a tank with 180deg motor temps.
