    Thanks for the info, again congrats, pretty impressive on 4s
    I am running 2s with 35/55, with a hobby wing motor, it is pretty fast, not been checked with gps, I am guessing upper 70's. Also running contact foams, love those tires. I have 3s I may play with later.

    We are running a similar setup with 3s 11.1 volts and castle brushless. the car wants to take flight. How do you keep it on the ground?

    What body are you running?
    I am running the c7 corvette body, I adjusted the body to almost on the ground, so the air cant get under it.
    I left a pretty good lip in the front when I trimmed it, and have the rear wing set up for max down force,
    I have my suspension set pretty soft, so it does not bounce. I had it kinda stiff before and it would bounce, then take off.
    On 4s, I have went 159 mph gps verified.
    Like I said if the air gets under it, it will fly.

    I have been that fast multiple times. It has been a progression to get there
    It was pretty official to me, I built it, I drove it, I saw it

    No I did not, I guess I will have to. I know what it did though, good enough for me. I am too old to seek others approval. lol

    Wow man. Nice speed out of that 4tec. Have you had issues with the front lifting at speed? I would think you have things well sorted at that speed. But it doesnít hurt to ask.

    Some times, if it hits a bump, I keep the suspension pretty soft, so that it does not bounce. That picture was before I ran that body, I had not installed the risers in the rear wing, it sets up higher than that now. That was also an old set of tires. Had just painted the body. I left all of the materiel in the front that I could, when I trimmed the body.

    I hear you on that. I'm old too but i run with serious people. Rossa we compete worldwide. Can't even use gps for rossa event we use certified speed traps and have to make back up passes. If you get a vid would be the fastest 4tec2.0 out there. What brand motor you running?

    LOL yeah he is probably crunching numbers right now.
    I usually only run on 2s, or 3s. I just had to try the 4s and see what it would do. I will not do it on a regular basis for sure.
    I do truly love this lilttle car though.

    So would it be to much to ask for an apology for lying and stealing?

    Phill is the speed run king. It would take lots of work to beat his numbers. Someone who is not known well in the speed run's inner circle is suspicious indeed. When he said Hobby Wing motor and 4s I knew something was up!

    I think that should be a secret also just like your post. Can't ask someone to post that, if you won't post what you are using. Whats the big secret. You afraid someone might copy you. In my book that would be a compliment.Plus just plain selfishness on your part.

    The Traxxas forum Is for sharing even if they are secrets. Sorry I came out a bit strong. Don't know what came over me... Serious business!

    Lektro, what are you talking about. The phony WestOak was busted using others gps numbers and claiming them as his own. He was caught by some very studious member. Since he hasnít responded.

    Yes, it should be... Westoak has been around for a while, frankly I'm extremely surprised.... He's been here since 2011 and has quite a few posts, many helpful... It makes no sense to me to ruin a good reputation with trickery like that... There are too many smart folks on this site who will smell out the truth... I've been here since 2005 and have over 19,000 posts... For me the longer you are here, the more you need to keep up your credibility... One stunt like that and it's all down the tubes... People who are true hobby enthusiasts should feel free to share in a collaborative effort. I agree. this way EVERYONE benefits. But to each is own...

    So where were we... OH, speed runs with the 4Tec 2.0 Man let's see some videos!!!!!!!!

    After seeing one in person I think it is pretty awesome that you got this thing to stay on the ground at 149! It is barely big enough to be a roof rack for my X-Maxx! I definitely can make a crazy drifting machine out of this! Now I need to find a motor mount.

    honestly you dont need a bigger motor mount. a decent brushless motor like a castle 3800 is plenty.
