Rideeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee the piggggggggggg!!! GRR IS AWESOME! do you think the m18 pro would be too much for a noob of on-road racing?

So are you racing or road drifting/speed runs? If your racing, the Pro will save you some money in upgrades that will help with racing. If your just having fun, its a bit of a overkill.

You can use the motor, but the battery you will need to buy the 6 cell extension post for the chassis. The hex adapters are sold separately.

Thats for the M18 Pro?? I thought you were talking about the M18T in your last post. Im lost..

If you mean the m18, you can use 6 cells in a shotgun style setup in the stock chassis. If your going to but the m18 pro chassis, you might as well get the pro.

ya, sorry to confuse you i too was confused, see my dad told me my mom wanted to see me do off-road carpet racing so i was gonna get a truck then she told me she only wanted to see it not have me race, so i went with what i wanted, the m18.

i was only thinking that chassis so that way i could use my rc18 battery's instead of getting all new battery's, because if i was to get new ones from cheapbatterypacks.com it would cost more than to buy the blue chassis and stuff to make it so i could use my rc18 packs. then i want to know if i can use the rc18 motor and also use MRS4 tires.

Here are some shots of the body I painted for a friends. Not the best picture quality and there is more details on the other side and rear not shown. Going to bug him for some better shots at some point.

I finally got my upgrades
atomic cvd's
and a heatsink with a fan.

I am really suprised by the quality of the cvd, and they run as smooth as butter. I would recommend them to anyone.
And the heatsink is great to, the mamba only gets warm but not finger burning hot like it used to [:@]


By the way, the only problem that I had today was that the rear wheel linkages keept poping of on misslanded backflips. But I think some small washers on the srews should fix that, and make the truck solid[>:]

They must have upgraded them from last time I tried them (atomic cvds). They were loose in the bearings that caused play in the wheels.

The wheel linkages on the upper arm? Or the toe-in? Either way, you can get nickel plated pivot balls for longer life.

there is allmost no play in mine.
And I think the linkages that keep poping of are the toe-in. There are on the bottom of the truck

On the M18T? If your using the newer Mambas with the multiple mounting holes, then yes.
