    Project Rad!

    I picked up this roller off ebay. It was well taken care of. Was only used on a carpet track I think. I'm gonna put a castle sv3 and maybe a stock 380 brushless motor. I havent decided completely on the motor yet. I only paid $62 shipped! Here's some pics and I'll post here as it progresses.

    Looks like you also need the motor plate/motor mount. Just keep that in mind while your building. I have a set if you need them.

    Nice looking car. You better watch your drive line with that power house. Lots of torque in it.

    Depends a bit on the use. I managed to ruin a CVD with my MMP/4600. The 3800 is even stronger.
    I got alu bulkheads and all the CVDs.

    Edit: wait, this is the not the Merv forum. I have a 800W motor in my Mustang and that has the stock driveline. Your 3800 is quite stronger.

    so do you think getting steel cvds and drive lines would be necessary?

    You could run the stock drivelines but eventually they will break.
