I am still amazed at the performace I am getting out of OBR 30cc Reed with Gizmo modded 1048 on it!! I have this motor in my FG Sportline 4wd . Last weekend I took it out for some parking lot bashing. The car performed like a champ it had unbeliveable grip in the turns!! With 4wd I was going into the turns almost wide open!! I had a great 2days running it !! Man the new GRP tires I got were great!! Then on day three..... the handling went south Yeah the tires I had on there provided super grip but they don't last very long!! Duh!! I knew that, thats what I get for not reading the product description. The GRP tires I had on my FG are what I consider Amain raceday tires not tires for bashing and hotdoggin!! lol lol. No more online ordering late at night when I am half a sleep.

Looks like there is alot of interest out there in the new motor that Zenoah has come out with. I hear that several engine builders will be offering a reed case for the new Zen 32cc. Things are looking brighter & brighter for the horse power war!!

I'm using high gear in the sand hill climb.

It has a has a 3'' stretched carbon chassis. Summit transmission that is using a 68T spur gear and 12T pinion gear, CVD drive shafts through out, brushless 4074 2200 kv motor, SMC 9400mah 2s in series (4s) lipos, RC4WD tires Custom wheels and a cool body and holds up well to rock crawling. weight is 16.5 pounds loaded!
The shocks are sweet and it doesn't break down since it has a aluminum diff housing and CNC carrier. The servos are Hitec HV units that run on 8 volts and has a sweet L.E.D. light system. I will soon add a sound box that will really set it off.

You are the master blaster of the electrics, fast boats , fast cars and now a Climber. I like to see and hear your sound system on your buggy when you get it installed.
