With a new engine and exhaust, and a yet-unbroken fuel tank.

Yeah, the side pulley can be seen in the upper left corner. I'll be taking the engine out again shortly, so didn't need to have that in the way.

I ran the kit tank for the entire GLC. Tons of practice, 5 quals, and 2 mains. No cracks in the tank. Yet.

Haven't run it yet. Notice how shiny the exhaust is. LOL.

The car was run at the GLC with a different engine/exhaust.

It's been broken in, and will finish the process at the Byron's race.

Alright fellas I have been looking at batteries all day long..... I am going to be running an Airtronics set-up, the 92744 reciever, and the 94358M ERG-VB high torque servos. What are some suggetions for batteries, of course trying to go with a light weight. Also I want to be operating at 6.0 v and most of the batteries I was looking at rate at 7.4 so will I be needing a voltage regulater as well. Thanks for your input!

I use the Exceed LiPo Rx pack, and I don't use a regulator.

I was told by a pro driver (that's at the worlds now), that most radio mfrs test their gear to 9V. He, and many other racers I know, don't bother with the reg.

Basically, you can do it, but at your own risk.

( I don't mention said pro driver's name, only because I'm not sure of any radio "sponsor" issues with him telling people publicly not to use a reg.)

i see pics of everyones cars, and i all see them with the side belt tensioner on the top of the plate. now i havent run mine yet, but i cannot get the belt tight enough. i have put it below the plate, and now i can set the tension much better, and a gram or 2 is also lowered, hahaha.
and for everyone saying these kits are tight, i do not believe that, mine is loose. rear top arm links, and steering links, and shock ends all are loose on the balls. top front arms have a slight bit of play also. should be fast straight away

i do agree with you... running at 7.4v is not gonna do too much harm to your radio gear since most manufacturers would build in a fair degree of safety factor... of course if you want zero worries, use the regulator....

btw i did an experiment with a used 9451 servo and spektrum receiver some time back just for the fun of it... i ran approximately 7.5~8volts into it using a variable dc power supply... nothing blew after 30 mins....

or alternatively, go LiFe (6.6v)...
