    It does not like to stay planted haha.

    How about some pictures of that custom stretched chassis?
    Looks like a lot of fun though.

    Looks great! That pinion gear is massive!

    Nice spacious chassis.

    Cheers, I've been using mod1 hardened 24 & 26t pinions...

    I did have a LSD centre diff to go in it but its got 6mm output shafts so I'm hunting down some cups/bearings to fit mounts etc etc.....as the LSD diff has a smaller 46t spur I should be able to go to a 30t pinion and reach around 100mph

    That will be a project for the spring/summer!!

    100mph is a pretty **** high top speed, but also nice having a whole ceiling..

    You might never need a 1000hp car, but its pretty **** cool to say you have a 1000hp car.

    Use the insert image ICON in the editor, FROM URL tab, and since your pics are huge, leave the "Retrieve remote file and reference locally" box checked so you get thumbnails instead of rolling off the side of the screen.

    Videos the same way with the filmstrip ICON, Insert Video.

    Yeah, I must admit, taking a 6th scale old nitro to B.less conversion to 100mphmay not be too easy!!!

    Its a completely different animal to taking a 1/10 scale to around that speed, I'm also using its stock shell as opposed to the wedge of cheese style shells the speed run lads use

    I have a Savage radared at 100kmh....not mph, lol. Plenty fast enough for 1/8th scale, pretty sure it'd break someones ankle.
