Default FS-Racing 1/5 MT Converted "Video"

Ok guys here it is! After a good amount of hard planning, modding and buying I finally got this bad boy running. It runs great over all but still needs a voltage upperage. Here is my current Setup and my future Setup...


Current....

ESC- AstroFlight 75a 60v
Motor- CIM Large Robotics Motor 440kv
Battery's- 18v 4000mah nimh's.
Powered by- Chain, sprokets and gears...


Future...

ESC- 48v Victor HV ESC
Motor- No changes...
Battery's- 10-12s 4000-6000mah lipos with atleast 25c's.

Also the big joes are lasting very well on the 1/5. I picked up some 1/5 foams and modded them to fit inside the big joes and it really helps the tires from flattening while sitting. Anyways without further adue, here are some pics.


Here is the vid- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KWEr7tFjUuk

Looks good but aren't they 4wd? Is there a reason you didn't keep the 4wd? What kind of speed does it do, sorry i can't tell from the video. How long is the runtime?
