Agree with all that, get a full-size lipo, capacity won't matter too much. A 6000mah weighing around 280-300g will balance in most cars easily.

I don't do a lot of carpet racing, but from what I see the Protoform TypeS is popular indoors as well as out.

TC on foams is definitely out of fashion, but is a lot of fun if you just want to do club racing and tyres are open. I run them indoors and outdoors at club level. Performance is better than rubber,...

Xray T4 16/17 Solid Aluminium Chassis

As title, I'm after a solid alu chassis from a T4 '16 or '17.

Not bothered by a few marks, but needs to be straight and flat.

The pre-cuts are pretty good (I've used IS200 and M410). You'll need to sand the edges as it's a bit of a rough finish, but they're drilled and cut accurately. Shame they don't do the Racer as a...

The two popular 'high downforce' shells to have are:
Montech Racer
Protoform TypeS

It's a good shell for indoors on carpet. Very stable but still decent overall grip. Quality seems okay; I've given mine some big hits and no cracks yet.

For outdoors you'll be better with one of...

Go with something popular that you can get spares and help for.

Used Xrays (T4'14 or later) are always a good shout; the setup and spares are pretty much identical to the latest cars. You'll...

Sanwa Exzes Z weight

Anyone have an Exzes Z (or ZZ) that they can weigh? With lipo inside it.

Currently using an X and trying to decide if the upgrade is worth it.

There's no list, the only rules are that it can't contain oil of wintergreen and can't mark or damage the track surface.

MR33 is a good starting point at most tracks.

It's the deflection of the tyre that makes the difference. A bigger tyre will deflect more before starting to slide, so more grip.

A larger diameter tyre gives more grip, so running the rears larger than the front gives more traction and less steering.

Downside of a larger diameter is that they're more prone to chunking, and...

They give a bit more steering lock, and make the car a bit more responsive, which can be useful outdoors. I ran them this year, but just used a standard car for the past 3 years and got on fine.
