usin a Trinity mini machine 20 turn motor, 8.4v nmh pack, futaba reciever (out of its case), a hitec HS-81 servo for steering and a great planes 22 amp speed control for gettin the juice to the tire.

thx chuck...still waitin on my GPM upside-downers and swingarm...anyways the speed control was a bad idea (I didn't know airplane speed controllers applied the brake as soon as you let off the throttle...but they do) so I have to adjust the trim so the back tire is always spinning slightly or as soon as I let off the throttle the rear tire locks up...lol (the motors torque isn't helping matters either) but when adjusted it drives fine (you never actually stop when your driving it anyways til you are done) I can live with it...besides its VERY small saving a lot of weight and space so the trade off is cool.

thx for the info kingcobra

the reason i asked is because my buddy is looking for a new speed contol for his bike. He had an IPD R18 ($40), which is the only tiny car esc i know of. However, they arent making them anymore and it didnt have hardly any brakes. Hes looking for an affordable alternative that he can run until he can get a mamba. Right now the best choice seems to be a SPY ($60) and he really doesnt want to spend that much since its basicly half of a mamba.

Can you give me model number for it? If the price is right i bet he'll give it a try.

Thanks
chuck

Tim, when you get the GPM parts in let me know.

Plus I'm curious how you're going to install the swingarm in the Mark1. I had no luck, it didn't fit.

Where there's a will (and a dremel)

There's a way.
