Tallman...A side note regarding the use of a LiPO in a starter box, tire truer, etc. Never let the battery run low as it will ruin the battery. It's really easy to forget and wait till it stops working and if that happens, it's too late. Try to make sure it has at least a storage charge when not in use and check the voltage regularly. You should be fine if you charge before you head to the track. Same goes for all LiPo and LiFe batteries. There are low voltage alarms in the market that plug into the balance port and will make noise when the battery gets low. Well worth the few bucks.

Get the precut for Capricorn "Diablo" by Xtreme Aerodynamics from RC Target It will save you time and the price isn't too bad. Also order the stiffener kit. This adds an additional $20 but well worth the price as they are purpose fit for the Xtreme bodies.

Sure but if you look at the Xtreme stiffeners, you will see how they are engineered to work with their bodies.They are precision fitted and come with little rivets that hold them to the body. I prefer to use Shoo Goo but to each his own.

Itíll probably do the job but Iím not a fan of 3Racing stuff. You would be better off investing in either a arrowmax or HUDY in my opinion. Yes more expensive but will last you a lifetime.

+1 on the Arrowmax and would also suggest the Tesla from RC Target. The measurement plate is cut to clear the rear body mount. This is the one I own.

Don't use a switch, very few people use a switch on a race car (that's why there isn't anywhere to mount one!). You should use a servo extension wire and mount it where there is a provision on the car receiver box and connect the battery directly using the extension as the 'switch'.
