If you want to do something different with your XP4, we are working on an electric conversion - here are early photos:

Finding the right motor/esc/battery combination to run seven to ten minutes flat out against the nitros is now possible. Your design is also way better than the other 1/8th scale conversions out there as far as battery fit and low CG is concerned, and with the aforementioned upgrades it can be unbeatable!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Whew, much of what we have learned is from e1/8th off road and 1/10th electric sedan. Both of those classes are pretty extreme. Add more weight, more speed and more traction - e1/8th on-road. As a group we have a lot of 1/8th on road experience - chassis setup , tires and all that are under control - plus, we have two of the fastest drivers in the country, Jim Adkins and Scoot Kimbrow. Our home tracks are the RAMS and NorCal Hobbies - lots of electric interest/knowledge with the racing community at NorCal. In 1/8th circles - the RAMS need no introduction.

So, here is what we are going to do:

A) The Rick Davis car will run in any 5 minute qualifiers where the tracks will allow us to run - loads of track time - check the durability and push the equipment. It will be the test mule. Combinations will be reviewed for speed run time and reliability.

B) we will continue to develop our manufacturer alliances (we have been very fortunate so far - a fair amount of support)

C) Rick Yoder will ready 3 Empire eYoders. We are hoping the eYoder will allow us greater flexibility because of battery choice. ThunderPower has been terrific with the support, as has Castle Creations.

D) report to all of you our progress. Look for suggestions.

Guys, these cars are fast. So far, this stuff ain't cheap and it is taking us time to work through many details. It has taken 5 months to get to what you see here. Remember we started in e1/8th off-road to learn about LiPos and the like (geesh - we sure aren't dirt guys - but, hell, Kimbrow is just plain sick fast with any car).

All for now....
