What lipo are you using have been looking for one already. I got a couple high end steering servos from my 1/4 scale race boat im going to try in it. Are you running a pipe?

I am running a killer rc lipo battery. It fits in the stock location perfectly. I have been running the stock throttle servo and a savox 235 for the steering but it started acting up last practice. I bought two hitec 5765 servos and i will be making an adapter plate out of aluminum this week. Gotta get ready for sunday morning at the track.

I blew through the stock body and another one now i am using a racer x body panel kit.

I keep alot of spare parts and can replace just about everything atthe track. FLM axles are cheap and work well. The stock drive cups and pins wear out, so keep spares. The stock diff fluids work great along with 35 shock fluid and blue springs.

I am running a Zenoah 290 motor with a Bartalone pipe. Its very loud and decent lowto mid power but is lacking on the top end compared to others at the track with highly built motors. My thoughts are to keep the motor stock and save the money for other parts.
