Bolisario--
I run either the FAST or Super G tires. The Super G 0 offset (which I think is actaully 1mm offset) fits the front fine, but won't fit the rear. You have to use the 2mm offset on the rear.

The 730 packs seem to be fine if you're using standard servos, but it just doesn't hold up using digital servos. I run at some tracks that run 20-30 min mains. I run digital servos, and my pack dies about 2-3 min into the mains. I'm barely getting through the qualifiers.

Got some runtime problems with 2 digital servos and one pack. Made by myself another pack with 750Mah AAA Sanyo cells and runtime got much better.

The problem is having two digital servos on your car, they draw a lot of current. Change your throttle servo for a 'Non Digital' one and your problems are gone. In fact I'm capable of running 50 minutes with the Sanyo cells pack and one Futaba 9450 on steering and one 9402 at throttle/brake.

If your having problems with your RX pack, then get hold of 5/4 AAA cells and make up a 850mah pack.
Everyone at our club uses this pack on their MTX3

Have you ever used the Sanyo twin cell?
In a shop near by there are some of them and they are 1000mah.
If someone has can you tell me if they need a special charger.

i have been able to get over an hour of time from my 730mah pack using 2 digital servos on more than one ocassion

during a race day i charge before qualifiers and again before mains but twice when practicing i have gotten over an hour from the pack using the timer on the radio to calculate

i use a hangar 9 double vision is a DC charger that can charge you radio reciever pack and glow plug ignitor all at the same time

Aaargh!. An overdrive pulley but not floating body mount???? this isn't fair. Planned seriously to make me one from the photo that posted manti some time ago.

On 15 days we have one race from a new class called 'Lola unlimited'....

The rules? easy:
- Lola VDS body is enforced (there's no place for pimp touring car bodies).
- Slam whatever .12 you want until is a .12cid engine.
- 30% nitro maximum.
- No other limits on pipes or anything, just pure and freakin fast engines, and of course.... Lots of nitro.

pretty interesting. we have the same rule here after all but they do restrict body shell to either sedan or Lola.
