    I'm not far behind you in that decision, if both of my 3s hooked together in parallel can't supply enough amps I will sell mine as well. What speeds were you getting from the 3200kv?

    I got 132 before my esc decided it was too hot. And that was half the distance I normally run.

    Mine pulled over 300amps on 3s with 23/34 gears. I could tell by the sound of it that my 3s by itself was not up to the task. If I can power it I could probably get some decent numbers out of it.

    Looks good Milt! That body is insane brother. It looks like a combination of several old muscle cars. 71-73 Mustang hood (minus blower!) and maybe a little AMC thrown in. I don't know but what's under the hood?

    Nice! What's the story on that mount? I like it. And if you don't mind me asking, what gearing are you running?

    Hey Shack sorry for the late response, A friend made some mounts, nothing crazy. I am running 29/34 and I actually hit my personal best with the slash 2 days ago at 138MPH. Was very excited!!!

    No problem. That's awesome brother! Very nice run! You looked to be glued to the road pretty good on those foams (and body). I also gotta say that I like how you've added LEDs to some of your rigs. Your haulin A and looking good doing it! That's how it should be!

    Thanks fellas!!! They only problem I have found at night is that I cannot tell where my car starts and ends so don't know if I am doing a normal run or a very short run.

    Hey Milt,

    I know what you mean about the challenges of a nighttime speed run! I finally found a good, long, straight, and flat, road that would allow for some serious high-speed driving. It is a busy road during the day but late at night, maybe a few runs could be had. So... a few weeks ago I loaded everything up, including the wife and kids (kids were sleeping & needed wife for camera duties) at 3AM and was pretty excited. I had added some really bright LEDs and the car was visible from a good distance but I simply could not see where the side of the road ended and the grass began when the rig was 800ft+ away. And even if I could keep it straight until the time it reached me, I would have the same challenge on the back side of the run trying to keep her on the pavement while I try to slow down. I decided not to take the chance with my $1,500 investment and countless hours of custom work. The search continues!

    The smoked body was one of my favorites (said it back on post #8).

    All you need is a rattle can of smoke (Tamiya #PS31).
