Default Leopard Race 23cc or 26cc

Hi guys,

Does anyone know if the Leopard race comes with a G230 or the G260 engine? I might buy one of these.

Thanks

It comes with the GS260RC. Haven't used it that much, but I think it handles better than the Marder (but then it does have wider and longer wheelbase, plus tyres with a wider diameter)

What radio gear thinking about putting in it? I have dual hitec 705's and hitec 645. 3PK PCM set. Don't need much to upgrade the Leopard, stock is pretty sorted model.

Hi Mad Wax,

I plan on getting this car next week some time. The radio I plan to use is the Airtronics MX3S. As far as servos, it is still up in the air but I think I will try the Multiplex servos. I know they are more expensive but I think it is worth it. I too also have the Marder, since the leopard handles better than the marder I cant wait to try it. BTW I see you are from Cheshire, UK. where is it located at. I bet you have access to alot of aftermarket parts. Since most of this stuff comes from Europe.

I would seriously reconsider using another TX, especially if you're on 27mhz.

Cheshire is a county, NW of England. Unfortunately most models shops are useless, unknowledgeable, have hardly any stock, and when you do place a order for parts take months. Generally a waste of time. I just order online.

Yeah I was considering Multiplex for a while, actually not that much more than Hitec (Rhino-£60, 5745-£50) guess just markup in the US for Multiplex is quite high? Might change to Multiplex in a few years once a 400oz single quarter scale servo is released.

At least not buying a MT or MB (way too common) :-)

Only bought a few upgrade parts for my Leopard- check my models/garage.
