    So cool! That thing is moving. On second pass, at 100mph, that's a little close for my comfort as it fly's past feet! I think I raised my feet, sitting in my chair, when it passed lol.
    Just need one more rc, then Ill be done...

    Yea I try too get as close too camera as possible, I'm always hoping that I don't mess up and hit myself. That wouldn't be good at all lol.

    Thanks that was when I built my xo-1 down to a 325mm wheelbase. And before I went back to lcg chassis. Heck general is gonna make me rebuild my pede. I still have everything just need to swap the bulkheads out and need a new body.

    Nice too know I'm motivating ppl for speed lol. As for me I'm done, I'm happy with 100mph, I'm converting back too off-road setup once I get home tonight.

    I'm glad you achieved what you'd been after so we can all see what the possibilities are for a truck that can do that and then be converted right back to an everyday basher. And to make 3 passes like that in one video is nice too.

    So... 110mph not even remotely on the radar?

    I wonder what the absolute top speed of a stock P4de is? Hmmm. You tell us bro... Have you really pushed it all the way?

    Thanks I'm happy with the results, I have too thank my lhs, he's the one that made this possible since I was using his batteries and that 2200kv motor. As you can see the 2200kv was starting too close the mph difference now compared too 2/3/4s runs.

    So you only gained a few mph from the Mod 1 gears right? What is the limitation you think? Aerodynamics?

    On 4s it was a 10mph increase, on 6s the 2650kv only gained 3mph and the 2200kv gained 6mph. I'm pretty sure aerodynamics are playing a huge part now with these speeds, with my setup I might as well be trying too push a brick through the wind lol.

    Na, no 110 for me I'm happy with a 100, I just got another 1:1 car too play with and it needs some stuff done to it, so a lot of my attention will be going towards it lol. There is a p4de on YouTube that hit 122mph on 6s and he had the stock body on it, not sure of his complete mod list though.

    Don't let your new 1:1 take away from your P4de. It's been awesome watching your build. Hope to see more in the future.

    Haha. I'm subscribed to his channel. He hasn't made a video in awhile. I have that body he cut up to fit the stampede it originally was built for his slash. Blue white and red

    Oh yeah, sweet car. I'm a Ford man myself, have a 97 Cobra. I've always favored the late 90s Firebirds though, especially the WS6.

    Hopefully I'll be right in your footsteps. I'm running 6s on a 2200 with 25/50 but I'm in the process of converting to a buggy. I'm on a slash chassis with an emaxx body. Talk about a kite. I'll be running an 1/8 bulldog body.

    Just waiting for a couple more pieces to show up.

    It will be interesting to see the difference with the slash chassis. More weight...

    If those don't work good, I'd recommend grp tires like I have. Their excellent speed tires, phildogg runs them as well and he's at 144mph.

    I almost pulled the trigger on the GRPs but then I saw these Chinese knockoffs... And I thought to myself, nothing ever goes wrong when you buy cheap junk. Why not strap these on a $1k truck and launch it down the road at 100. It will be fine. Juuuust fine...

    A wise man once told me, chances make champions. Actually he was a horribly compulsive gambler that would never back down from a bet regardless of how obvious it was that he would loose, but I stole the saying anyway.

    Chances make champions!

    That's an awesome car General, you will have fun working on the 1:1. I have a Vette that takes up most of my spare time. I just had a few people at the office watch the 100mph video. Needless to say you shocked a few people, most didn't believe it was possible. Watching the truck fly past at those speeds is crazy.

    It's cool to see someone build a truck and keep a truck body for speed runs. Most people ditch the truck look as soon as they decide to do speed runs. I have a slash and I just ordered the 2650kv, hopefully I can keep a truck body and run it over 100. I need to do some research to see what the fastest truck bodied truck is.
