Default New Bright 1/10 1997 Corvette hobby conversion

I decided I would convert one of the 97 Corvettes over to a hobby car to see how it performs.


1. Airtronics FM radio

2. Mamba Micro Pro

3. 11.1v lipo

4. HPI servo


I started out with a 7.4v lipo running it in the battery tray. It was faster than stock but still not very fast because the stock motor is low out put. So I thought I might try the 11.1v lipo to pick things up and its much faster. The motor is a 360 size and can be bought on ebay. Any motor besides this one will make it run much faster and they can be had new for just $3.00. the battery helps the traction being on the back but I will be re-arranging the electronics to keep the weight lower and help the handling. Even tho its not crazy fast yet its still a blat to drive at any speed. It still uses the same on/off switch positioning.
