Wow. Just for the shaft.. Over 10 grams different. If we add another hop-ups, I think it could be over a couple of 100 grams different in weight.

Better show up! I think Eddiethefish has too much free time. He might start weighing battery packs next.

Gentleman81, have you decided on an engine yet? If not, put some of that hopup money into a good motor, maybe a Nova based motor, j/k.

My car will be in on thursday, woohoo.

That thing was already good before break in! Can't wait to see how it runs now. I'll try and make it out this weekend. I already spent all day Sunday so we'll have to see what the wifey says. Might still have to unpack.

BTW- My bro finished 3rd B-Main. He was doing pretty good with the MTX-3! Next local was 4th.(Dan the Man)I'm still 1 sec faster.

Varuth, my prospec!!! Probably one more race, at least for now, with the Vision.

Nooo, what have I done. Giving Eddiethefish more suggestions. If your gonna compare batteries, compare runtimes between Nimh and Lithium polymer batteries.
