Nice!! What motor r u using?? Is that a V2 board on the top of the chassis or a car radio?? :D

It's a transponder for the lap-z system.
It's an atomic AR30, that is what we run in sweden.

It's weird how much ive spent on worthless options like aluminum motormounts, when the stock plastic is acctually the lightest and fastest out there...

u have to face it, Kyosho makes the fastest options!

Can't deny it, Kyosho's done it's homework.

Also, did you paint you chassis black or is that the skeleton chassis??

It does not help with alloy mounts if you are a racer and dont race any longer then 20min...

And any possible lack of torque and rpm is made up bcz of the better handling you can achive with a lighter enginemount. Ofcourse a light differential helps even more.. Titanium shaft and ceramic balls.
