Response from SpeedPassion thread.

No...only the PRO will be able to run on 1S without booster.
That version is slated for a later release. So skypilot can be the guinea pig in meantime for regular.

I think I have one in my parts box. The ESC I use doesn't need one. I'd be willing to sell it to you for a good price. PM me if you're interested.

Peace,

It's the only micro car that was ever worth owning! J/K

But seriously though, it was fast and didn't donkey flip and eject its tires in every corner like other micros at the time!

You mentioned you were going to get one. So you are in the sense, the guinea pig for all of us as far as far as how well it works.

Cause its much funnier than the original. But I would be denying if I did not admit that I thought the original would have been racially inconsiderate. So, taken from your response, its backfired. So apologies.

It used the same tires as the other micro sedans, and had a higher CG to boot. Unlike the other ones, couldn't be run on carpet, and none of them had the ground clearance for parking lot tracks. In short, it would have kicked out tires or donkey flipped with the best of them, but be even more limited to where it could run.

The M18 Pro with its newer rim system got rid of the tire ejection.

But I disgress. Maybe someday 1/18th will return. Or, if the BRCA rules becomes global. It will all go 1/14th.

Point of view/opinion from a old guy. The fact that you felt the need to post a black video for the black guy is in itself problematic.

Cheers.

Default Micro Mater

Hey Guys,

Just thought you'd get a kick out of my latest project. My 2 year old daughter has taken a shine to Cars (like all kids do) and especially Tow Mater. She also likes turning the wheel on my TC controller and chasing it around the house to help corner marshal when it gets stuck, so I decided to combine her interests into a Christmas present.

I snagged a used Micro T and tweaked the mounts to accommodate a shell off a Mater toy I bought. I call it the Micro-Mater. Initial performance tests have been promising, but I think we're going to add a brushless system to offset the added weight. In any case, I think she'll like it.

Merry Christmas to you and your families!
-Kyle Bradshaw
