but it does look good

those 1/8 guys average laps are 16/17 secs, the fastest time was at the world championships, not sure who but it was low 15's these guys were quick.

next movie going up is of me driving my electric car - a Tamiya TA-04 with stock motor, stock gearing white loctite skyline body. i know its in the wrong thread but i'll put it up for anyone intested.

right here we use as low gear ratio as possible to attain higher speed while keeping more or less the same run time for stock

Trying to work out where the battery sits

Not too keen on playing with weight distribution, as the MTX seems very balanced as it is.

I think I've seen that - Kawahara's upper deck. It was selling at my LHS for around 60-65 USD. Anyone have comments on it?

I finally found some screws for the ones missing from the Torque Sensing Diff. I bought this weekend. HPI makes some in 2.6x8mm that fit perfectly except for the fact that they aren't flat-headed. Has anyone tried this diff yet? I'm gonna install it tonight along with a faster and torque-ier steering servo.

Intresting to see how this negative diff performs with the one-way.

Ryan, what are you using up front (eg diff/one-way / oil?)
