    No e-calc, just shoot from the hip, I call 72mph if you run same gearing as before

    I didn't push it hard due to traffic and I noticed one of the front wheel needed to be balanced but I got 69.35MPH

    got home after the run and received my X3 body, quickly open it so see how it look. here it is,


    next to PF8


    this is how the suspension set-up in order for the body to fit.
    front

    rear

    noticed the top part of the shock tower? I have to shave some off to clear the body.


    all trimmed and fitted

    Thanks y'all. I think I'm going to paint it red with black and white.

    @wakesurfer98, that boots are from XO-1, what your looking really is an XO-1 parts (c-hubs/carriers, adapters/ stub axles) paired with tekno m6 dogbones/drive cups on pro trac arms.

    You should see my 1/10 McLaren/Sprint2Flux After speed runs with it at 72mph, and flipping a few times, skidding on it's top for what felt like 100 yards , it was pretty beat

    For all the years I've been in RC, I find every display body eventually becomes a basher, and every new painted body starts life as a shelf queen.

    Its the cycle of RC body life
