It also shows that 65c lipos are the only lipos that can be used in this large of brusshless. I will have to spend twice as much for lipos but I think that THUNDERPOWER in 65c is the only lipos that I will be buying from here on.

I lied! I bought 2 4s SMC 6500 race formula 70c-140c to run @ 8s.
I Also bought 4 3s of the SMC 6500 70-140c to run 6s in my twin motor Catamaran.

Something tells me you will be engineering a quicker way to get the body off?

Maybe some big fuses in line too?

That's pretty fast mate, well done

I bet the dog is knackered after chasing that, too

I tried the truck in sand with the Rune Reaper tires you see in this video. They work awesome! I will be running these with paddles in the rear next time to the differance and do a sand dune video of it.
Also if you look at the lay out in the video You can see the differance in the lay out. I did this to keep the front end down and to get it to climb steep hills better.
