Default looking into buying a chassis for high speed soon.

Yes, im looking into buy one of em.

So what kind of chassis do you recommend? Ive thought about Tamiya TB02 because i know people who use those with brushless system and that thing went over 100 mph.[X(] if no no TB02, then what kind of chassis should i get? i dont mind buying just a chassis with no wheels, no motor, etc. Absolutely nothing except chassis.

I know a owner of the hobby shop and he recommend me that motor he showed me. take a look.

My vote goes to the Menace GTR because it has a 3spd tranny and because its made by Schumacher.

Thats a 1/8 scale though. I bid on an electric one on ebay a while back but didn't win. They are sweet cars to. Everything schumacher makes is nice, quality stuff. Might whant to put a L or XL in something that big.

Ive heard people that run the MM setups on it with great success. I personally think a Feigao 7l would be prefect for it.

TT01 is a definate NoNo when it comes to speed. There just not built right for it. Schumacher is an awsome company that makes great & reliable cars/trucks.

hey dont get it twisted if you want to ga fast i mean really fast 4wd electric is NOT the way to go surely not with a tt-01! yeah guys put brushless systems and 3cell lipo's in 4wd's and lay down 60+ mph top speeds but 100mph tt-01 i just dont know about that, if you truly want to go fast pick up a direct drive car say a associated rc10L or a tamiya f103gt get a high end low turn brushed motor say a 7-10 turn and gear it @3.5:1 - 4.0:1 and a good 6 or 7 cell pack now you talking fast! brother
