I must admit I have my eye on an HN X1-CR FT BB 2008, daft name, but A lot of buggy for the money..

The 808 looks gorgeous though and will be as well engineered as my XB8, not sure about those shock towers though - I'm thinking the alu ones will be on the top of my wish list...

The HN is very good........BUT the Xray is a nicer thing to work on. Its typical XRAY.

The carbon towers are fine if you glue the edges, it sems there are more issues with the allu towers as they are not the thickest to keep weight down.

There should be some more 808 towers coming to market in a few months all being well ;-) ;-) ;-)

Are there dates on a website or such like, I won't be able to make them all as I'm on shifts but I'd like to give some a go even though I'm challenged in the driving skills department.

Still you can't please all the people all of the time as they say.

what sort of wattage are the motors you are using producing, guessing that as .21's are 2bhp or more you are talking 1500watt or so.

Too slow compared to what?

The 2.5 on 4s is fast enough to make nitros cry, the 1.5 will just make them wish they've never been born

Took my new 8th electric to EPR today and gave it a few runs through out the day, was sooooo much fun to drive, much nicer over the jumps and bumps than 10th scale!

Im Sold!!!!

Hi Chaps,

Found this forum by following Northys sig link on the Caster Forum.

I have an early Fusion that Answer Pete has supplied to me through Bolton Model Mart.

I'm running a Neu1512 2.5 d motor, with a Monster Max speedo and a couple of packs Pete sorted out for me at 5000 / 20. I'm running 16/44 at this time.

I am from the nitro side, starting in trucks, then truggies and recently, Buggies. On the nitro side I run a Losi8 C6 t7.

I have only run the fusion a couple of times and have yet to run a final (20mins).

Hear is a short phone clip of it going around Pendle.
