    Just got mine, ran it for about half an hour on a half dead 2s lipo and you NEED a lipo imo. The tires are actually not that bad, only reason i'm running the stockers is because my lhs sold out of the tires I wanted... but these are quite manageable, and drifting is easily controllable.

    Being my first car, it handles and drives great so far!

    Very easy and fun car to drive. Throttle control is all you need to make this one of the funnest cars to drive. I also second the need for LiPO...

    Sounds like some good feedback. Temptation is growing.

    What lipos are you guys running? Ive ordered 2 SPC 3S 1600mah packs to run in parallel... what is everyone else running? Is that going to be a good setup?

    Hows ground clearance? Is it low to the floor like a Hpi sprint 2?

    I thought it looked jacked in some online photos, but now that I own one I can tell you it's low yet still performs well on rough surfaces and so far has handled foot tall jumps with ease, it has such good stability i'm surprised actually.

    As for the lipo, i'm running a Dynamite 2200mah 2S 25C (DYN1422), so far with just one pack... I have two, just don't think it needs more power with these tires. When I swap out for a grippier set, i'll see if it's worth running two packs.

    EDIT: Just measured, 12.3mm gc.

    Do you have the part number of those batteries?

    And are they 2S or 3S?

    the batteries look like ********* 2-cell 2200mAh 20c series batteries. I have no part number, as I am guessing by shear looks from the picture on this thread.

    I use those batteries too and they are great. They are dirt cheap at HK too.
