I already shimmed my diffs i have all plastic ... Half shafts I plan on taking it really easy like 10 SECONDS to get to full throttle. I wont be Guning it right off the start or do ANY Standing back flips well maybe a couple but Another thing is i know... Do i need a powerful battery.. Would nimh work and i am making a custom body. like roll cage type and putting a 10 scale Battery.. so no more 1/16 scale battery just the big boys .. so what is the power i need like a 5000 nimh mah battery good and a 5000 or 3000 2s lipo 25 c good or do i need more power just wonder...

    Stick with max 4600 castle as in 4600 or 5700. The 3800 draws too much power and our little batteries wont handle it!

    ^^^^agreed. with the batteries not being able to supply the power needed it'll be really slow also.

    you could do dual 2500mah batteries if you want longer run times

    Two 2500 spc will not power that either. You need atleast one 5000 50c to.power it

    Either will work great. 4600 has more torque and the 5700 more top end but you could probably gear the 4600 to make up the difference

    well you will get some good run times, looks pretty sturdy but won't it be a little top heavy? good job for thinking out side the box

    Yea.. i will get Awsome Run time but yes it will be alittle top heavy so what i will do is get my Tires for my 1/10 scale truck with alittle more width and put them on they fit well and since they are taller it doesnt bottom out and i can pretty much make the car sagg as much now it is pretty much car is sorta sitting down between the tires if that makes sense so its way below where is suppose to be but doesnt hit the ground i drove it with my brushed and i didnt flip over at all if i drive carefull but yea all is well
