Yes someone is here!
I don't have a mi5.... Have you got rid of the mi4cxl Hotrod?
I'm still on a Mi4CXL but I am still working getting the set up right.
I've set the car up as a per reference setups.

Regards,

Nick.

Hi Hotrod,

I will try to answer your questions.

My Mi5evo is around 20 grams lighter than my Mi5 was.
Using standards electrics (HW v3.1 / sanwa 471 receiver / Sanwa SDX801 servo / GM Motor with 30mm R1 fan / 7600mah intellect lipo) and a lightweight bodyshell it weights in at around 1360g

I have the same upgrades as I had on my Mi5
Aluminium screw set and double joint front driveshafts.

As for shorty, this is not something I have tried but I know of others that have. You can get a better balance left to right but loose far too much performance from the battery.

The best compromise appears to be a lower capacity battery. With intellect 6000mah 90c I am underweight by around 20 grams and can therefore add weight where I need to balance the car.

Thanks
Darren Lee

Thanks Darren

I would be running a  17.5 Blinky. Would the same apply.

I understand that a strut has to be removed from the wishbones to cope with our lower grip tracks. Please could you give me some details ?

Thank you

Hi Hotrod,

I have tried the 7600mah and the 6000mah 90c lipos from intellect in 13.5 boosted and couldn't tell the difference. I wil ltherefore be running the 6000mah version due to the lower weight.

With an aluminium chassis now available the weight saving could be critical.

I plan to race 13.5 blinky indoors so I would imagine it would be the same for 17.5 blinky too.

When I went ETS (Luxembourg) the top guys (A final) were mostly running the lower capacity variations of respective manufacturers lipos for better weight balance.

Thanks
Daz
