Smallest Starter Box for RRR?

Quick question:

What is the smallest/lightest starter box, or starting system that is compatible for use with the V One RRR?

I need something I can put in a backpack, as I dont have a car atm and need to travel by foot to races.

Currently I have a ofna box with a lead battery... it's toooo big and heavy to be lugging around on trains!!

Thanks!

You will be pleased with the performance of those tires.
Hi RMD,

I can second that. Those Jaco 38's hold really well.

Hi Dougday,

Do you use the 38's all around or harder in front?

Let me know.

Thanks.

Given your circumstances in general, you may want to consider this bag from Team Magic:

You can attach seperate bags for the transmitter and the starter.

Wow, that is one sweet bag! Thanks for the link, as it also led me to this: http://www.teammagic.com.tw/en/profr...1015&pageNum=1,

This seems is exactly what I'm after!

Has anyone used one, or knows if it is any good for the rrr?

Default K-Team RRR vs. XRAY T2

Well, I just took on a new challenge, something fun to do for our Rose Cup 2-day event this Sunday.

I'll be taking on my good friend, a local electric ace in an electric sedan with a modified motor (his choice, more than likely a 7T motor) and me in my RRR. We each get 10 laps empty track and will see who can post the fastest single lap! Have no idea what the layout will be, but it'll be on a VHT treated parking lot about 150ft back straight, probably a 180 on and a sweeper off.

It should be fun! To beat a 7T sedan isn't going to be very easy at all, but definitely looking forward to it. Loser of course buys drinks and dinner.

Dom

Can anyone tell me what shocks are being used on Josh's RRR? Also is that the Kyosho sway bar he is using?

Thanks
