    Tried running two packs in Series...

    And holy cow that's a lot of power. Too much really, at least for the stock tires. Looks like I'll be needing some HPI x pattern tires.

    A warning as well, if you hit stuff at speed, you will probably break the car! I broke the rear axle carrier hitting a mound of snow/ice on the side of the road! At least it's cheap and easy to repair.

    I snapped both front and rear carriers on the right side. Installation was easy. but I'm not sure how to do the alignment.

    The accurate way would be to use a set up station for touring cars, but for a basher, it's pobably not really needed. I just eyeball it, and it is usually pretty darn close. I am not going to break out my set up station and tweak board for the rally...lol.

    I ran two batteries and burned out the ESC and both batteries melted, within 3 runs. I didn't change the pinion.

    Pick up an RPM Monster Camber Gauge it can be used to quickly and easily set bot5h toe in/out and camber . Much more accurate than eyeballing it and easier and cheaper than a set up table.

    You will end up using the RPM camber gauge all the time on all your vehicles. I'm shocked how much I use mine
