    3s ANZA Raptor vxl test run

    This is my first video. My son recorded so I hope it turns out okay. Also, I need a much bigger straight stretch for this setup. I normally don't jump the speed bump going that fast. Enjoy and feel free to comment.

    Well.... went to the school's parking lot to run the ANZA Raptor 3s on a longer straight stretch. It was extremely fast and looked and sounded great. Of course just when you think you have a handle on things something goes wrong. My poor Raptor body is scuffed up now!!!! I thought I could hit the throttle a little more aggressively through the half throttle point, but air got under the body and flipped it backwards on its lid and then bounced back forwards on all fours. I am disappointed in myself for doing this to my beloved Raptor, but I knew better. I have to admit that it was pretty cool and funny in hindsight. I also had a rear Street Fighter come unglued. I think as a result of my throttle input while it was upsidedown. I know most of you will think that it doesn't look bad, but I am a perfectionist and like my stuff to stay in great condition. Oh well, guess I'll have a new beater body, lol!! Enjoy the pics and video.

    Yes it is very smooth running. My days of 3s are over though. It was fun while it lasted, but no good area to run at that speed. I enjoy my 2s lipos and they provide me with excitement also.
