    Will not fit, not a chance... Stock motor is 24mm in diameter and it's a tight fit...

    well i put the micro mamba from castle in mine but its not a direct fit either. it even says for 1/18th scale but its biggest mounting holes are still a hair to close to fit right in. if you look back at my thread again i put pics of what needs to be done to fit it though.

    the stock battery alone will blow the tires off on super smooth concrete like a basement or garage for example but its much more challenging to do on rougher asphalt but still possible. same thing for even a lipo. but on super short carpet on lipo you can just hold drifts if your good enough. and this is all speaking without a locked diff at all. if you lock the diff with jb weld like my buddy did or install the optional spools it will drift even easier yet. i believe i also put a video of mine drifting on stock battery in my thread. so check that out to.

    ^^^Is that waterproof?

    This says it is, but I can't find much in the way of user reviews.
