    Just went out to run the micro at 12:30 am and let me tell u this thing is fast! I could npt belive how fast this thing was. This makes my mini t look like its running a stock motor! The cool thing is I can control it even at that high of speed, 55+ guessing. I could not use full throttle I ran out of space in a hurry. I am useing stock plastic pinons so I can't wait tell I move up to more teeth! The guys at castle creations said to use Trinity pinons but I am useing stock plastic and they are working awsome, I wish I would have tryed them in the first place it would have saved me 60 bucks! What I would like to do it get it speed checked to know its real speed instead of guess but I know tonight it hit 50+ MPH! I have a video of a micro rs4 doing 50 with a 540 conversion in it, mine seems to be going quicker!



    I have my front diff locked, how would the car handle if I locked the rear diff also?

    you should have a friend drive you in his/her car,you sit in the passenger seat with the antenna out the window and follow behind it at full speed then check the speedo of the car you are in.

    my guess would be about 30-35mph.but they look much faster than that because they are so tiny.

    i dont think micro cars go that fast.i asked a guy in the hobby shop and he siad they only go about 20 at top speed.so this 50# i dont understand.OH...i guess you mean scale speed.460 is about the fastes they go in scale speed so 50 is a nice speed to play with it on the kitchen floor.you can doo nice donuts on the kitchen floor and hit top speed before you get to the refrigerator.

    no no no this is scale speed. With the power of a brushless motor putting out over 80,000 rpm's at 12 volts these micro do go 50+, and with the right gearing,tires and battery you can make a mini t go 60+. As for the guy at your LHS he is thinking of it being stock, that is how fast a stock minit goes or just about any micro.

    it is scale speed?i think you mean isn`t.

    yea 60+ is pretty fast for a small car that size.the 1/10 scale cars do 120mph electric and they arent very large either.

    well if it is scale speed like you say 60mph scale speed is only 3.3 mph.i dont think you know what you are talking about.they are 1/18 scale and they can hit speeds of 30mph not 3mph.
