So do I need to sand the battery slot on my Xray T2, HPI Pro 4, and Yokomo CGM? I know that the T2 is newer but can the 4200's fit it okay? It give me an idea how I can use the batteries if I purchase them. Thanks.

Hi Erika and gang. The matched mini/micro packs are awesome. The difference between these and stock unmatched packs that came with the kit are night and day with dare I say "too much power"

I ended up 3rd in the unlimited class (and it wasn't because of a lack of horsepower) and I won the past champions class...so overall not too bad

As promised here are a couple of pics of the Frog. Erika, I'll burn a CD of the pics I took this weekend and give them to you in Vegas.

Take care!

Hey Rod,
Are those shocks modified TRF shocks with long shafts? Where did you get the springs and those rear tires? Already thinking about hop-ups for Timmy's Frog!

Max, here's what I pm'ed Izzy with

What I did was the following:

Shocks
I used old TRF shock shafts (the ones that are a bit longer). I then took a two hole piston and drilled the holes out to 1mm. I then drilled two 0.5mm pilot holes perpendicular to the two existing holes. I drilled those out with a 1mm drill bit. I used the new 1mm down spring retainers. I also reamed out a bunch of those plastic shock rings you find on the Vparts tree to fit on top and bottom of the spring (prevents spring from popping off). I used Losi Mini LST springs (white). 400 weight front and 500 weight rear for oil.

Shock Mounts
I threaded 3x12mm droop screws into the existing holes. Added a 3mm spacer so that shocks can clear body and suspension. Top them with aluminum ball stud.

Front Axle
I cut the drive axle ears off to prevent anything getting caught in there.

Front Chassis
I dremeled a section of the chassis where the front suspension hits in order to get a little bit more up travel.

Tires
Fronts had stock sidewalls with a center section of Proline Bowties. No insert.
Rears were Losi IFMAR Pins cut and sectioned to fit Tamiya Wheel. Insert was foam from the Dark Impact (? DJ made the tires so I'm not sure). The rear tires Jimmy used were Crime Fighters for the Mini Inferno with two rows cut out and Trinity Soft (white) Inserts for the RC18. Cut Square Fuzzies were for doing hyper-donughts and were no good when the track dried out.

Camber
Rear 4 degrees
Front 1.5 degrees

Toe
Front about 1 dgree toe out
Rear is stock

I think that pretty much covers it. Let me know if there is anything else I can help you out with.


I hope this works.

And now we return to our regularly scheduled programming

the tekin tray is a great tray. just don't leave your batts on the tray pass when the lights go out. there are some usage recommendations on the promatch site.

Hey, Promatch!!

I just went onto the website and you are "out of stock" on the IB4200 1.23 volt packs.

Are you in the process of matching more and if so, will they be ready in time for Vegas?

Thanks for the great packs and service!!

Hey guys... how's everyone doing. Good luck to all the ProMatch drivers who'll be attending the IIC.

Does Erika still sign on? I need to ask her something.

Yes, I also ran it last weekend. I want to get into the twelves with it but we'll see how it goes. This should be a fun weekend so long as it isn't too hot.
