is this the 1/8th scale?

if it is, it uses an easyrun system. it should be on 4s already.

the lipos which come with the car are low aprox 3000mah you can upgrade the batterys to some 5500mah this will giv ethe car more punch and acceleration.

TBH the car isn't up to job though it seems to be made from cheese.

I bent the front wishbones by looking at it in rude manor.

My advice is the scrap the car and put the electrics into a trusted 1/8th car (not truggy) upgrade your lipos and the car will be a pace with any nitro.

If thats not fast enough. on a budget i would advise a second hand vorza with electrics. they come with the monster mamba system which can handle a 6s lipo. that is two shades of crazy to drive and the car is hard as nails.

I used to run the monster mamba system in a losi 2.0eu with 5s. it would outrun any nitro engine out there.

Due to the wonderful rules of the BRCA though 4s hardcase lipo is your max. like anything it's all fun until the fun police arrive.
