    Anyone with electric redcats yet?

    Anyone sample a electric redcat yet?

    Been wondering what the new brushless motor can do to them. Anyone have specs on the ESC and Motor yet? Is it a 3000 kV motor or 3500?

    I'm tempted to try the tsunami and run a lipo brushless combo.

    I knew i should have ordered in some Lipo packs!

    if i can get a big enough pinion and small enough spur, with a 11.1 volt lipo it COULD see over 60.

    how bout spurs?

    I'm really floored that they dont brag and advertise about their electrics yet. Electrics are coming back with brushless becoming more advanced... and with a good lipo pack and wonderful gearing... nitros dont stand a chance

    RE: Anyone with electric redcats yet?

    just gotta have a better battery pack

    If you have a high capacity battery pack, you can run longer than the nitro guys, and be faster . Therefore, pit less often too.

    Whats the capacity on your packs?

    best of both worlds is always the way to go. But lots of nitro people think that electrics couldn't touch em on the track... until they get beat by one [X(]

    RE: Anyone with electric redcats yet?

    If you have the Volcano EPX, you can use the spur gear from the Tornado or the Lightning. They have a 58T and the Volcano has the 64T. Radio Shack sells a 3400 battery that is pretty cheap. It's a Nmh. Is the Tornado EPX supposed to have tire foams? Mine didn't come with any.

    Can your charger also charge NiMH? I have 2400 mAh NiCd packs (econo sport pack), 3800 mAh NiMH Sport pack and 4200 mAh NiMH Sport packs.

    If you are looking for a pack for under 20 bucks, the 2400's i sell are $16 per pack.

    RE: Anyone with electric redcats yet?

    thats because there are a lot of people out there who are pretty greedy for a nickel these days. All they do is hurt their own profits. I keep my prices right where they are because I have a race rewards program. Each cell is also analyzed to make sure they meet the specs that are claimed. Packs come with warranty too which is pretty amazing.

    Do any of you dealers have specs on the brushless motor yet?
