    Very true and considering my other hobbies watch collecting this games a bargain haha

    Plus as I've stripped and sold from new so far I’m £400 back with another £100-£150 of bits to move so takes the dent out of a small proportion and was my stance given I knew I was going to do the work, doing it all now opposed to when stuff breaks.

    Thank you

    Still to mount the R1 fans but want it up and running as is so I can monitor temps before I start fitting them.

    X-Maxx yeah maybe one day!

    Funnily enough my mate and I have now got access to a private our door track and we joked about getting a X-Maxx and fitting a wedge at the front to go around and flip the car back over to save us the work of shame haha

    Actually dare I say Iíve gone to the darkside and have a Typhon with lots of carbon fibre in the works.

    Limiting straps, they limit the amount of extension the suspension has and prevents over extension issues.

    Trust me if you got an X Maxx you wouldnt be using it to flip cars back over, you’d sell the rest of your RCs and concentrate on the X!

    Do you have a part number and who makes them for these motor wire organizers? I know Axial makes something similar but I cannot track them down. Everything does look pretty slick. Can you change the color of the LEDs on the 7PX? It's blue.

    Hmm they came from a US RC place called Darkside or something along them lines.. it wasnít Darkside Studio who keeps popping into my mind!

    Alternatively if you can find somewhere with them in stock Schelle do some and they are listed as carbon caddy (#sch1280)

    Be aware they do need to be filled/dremelled out to accept 10awg

    As for blue I went with it on the controller but had to customise that..

    All done and running (just need longer screws for the fans to run the 10mm spacers.

    But so far no over heating.

    Had an initial issue and didnít calibrate the 7PX and MX properly so it went into reverse full throttle and did a reverse flip! Scraped bumper and fan shrouds (luckily I have spares)

    School boy error lesson 1 learned haha

    Got a link for those fans and motor heat sink?

    Don't try bashing with those terrain crushers on. Well, don't jump much. They tend to crack. I have a set under my workbench, one with a spun hex and 3 that are well cracked. I had them on my ERBEv1 for a while and they did not care for skate parks. I jump out of the park onto grass, so I wasn't even landing on concrete.

    What gearing are you running with the mmx/2200kv system? Or is that a lower kv motor?
    Expert rigging at it's best!

    Fan mount/heat sink is Yeah Racing, bypassed the YR fans for decent R1 Wurks ones as they move a huge amount of air for their size.

    The Shockwaves are my default basher tyre, TC are great round a dirt/road track near me.

    Stock gearing currently and yes 2200kv set up, getting two packs through (well 2 pairs) of 6S through and no overheat issues as yet, thatís around a local RC track (dirt) do plan to access gearing soon though.

    The shockwave tyres - are they heavier then stock?? How do they perform? Ballooning etc?

    Would appreciate your thoughts.....

    Lighter, much lighter. Good tire. For a full set of 4 they are a pound lighter than stock Talon EXT. I did weigh them last year.

    ^ Nick beat me too it!

    I don’t have figures like he has but out of all the options I look at the Shockwaves felt the lightest.

    Really impressed with them if I’m honest.

    Build is finished I’m just holding back for my custom body before posting anymore pics, next build is underway just sadly not one for here, but it has a lot of carbon fibre a smidge of HR bits and a nice CM TP powered off another MMX
