Your Fet stack (or lack of) is weak

Thank you for the info Dave!

Just noticed, Dave -- why is there a power switch on your car? Removing that should help a bit with the horsepower problem, as well as an FET stack.

I have removed my switch on other boards and felt no difference even though others say otherwise. I ended up qual 2nd and finishing 2nd this past weekend at the PNWC at Maj;s hobby shop. THe only person to go faster then I was Chad Nelson. I made an attempt to thin out the side flex plates and ruined them. In the 3rd round and the main I ran an mr02 and was way way slower. I look forward to more testing. Brian...U got mail!!

Out of curiosity, what damper is you are using? Looks like a Kyosho but it is black?? If Kyosho do you have a part number?

my 1.1.... still a bit of work in progress but so far its ok... not totally happy with the servo and i have a slight chatter in the rear... but it is pretty amazing how well this setup puts power to the ground for being so lite...

Looks great, Junior. How is that exposed servo motor working out for you? I've always been worried about dust so I capped my servos back after soldering the wires to them. If you're having servo troubles I'd definitely look for dust inside the casing.

As for the chatter issue, try a stiffer pair of disk damper springs and/or shim the springs to increase damping. The MRCG1.1 has higher roll resistance than normal Mini-Z's so you need to increase damping correspondingly to avoid chatter.

solved the rear chatter with the heavier dampner springs... thank you...

the servo is siliconed so no dust gets in.... my problem with the servo is its inconsistency with recentering true every time... i hope someone can come out with a mr03 servo setup... hint... hint...

do you guys over a stiffer top plate for the batteries?... i believe with the soft one we are forced to crank it down harder and may be causing the chassis to twist.....
