12 weeks Blade?? Yikes!! Yeah the Nova Rossi 8-port 528xrp has a nice power-band.  The 3-port version might have too much bottom end for a car however.

HI, Nitrohead5300 my truck is a t maxx with the suspension set low and the body mounted as low as it will go.

Hi, Blade 954 if you mean the paint job on the R12 yes i did do it ,it's the first shell i've painted. I'm waiting for the new 3.1 stratus shell to come in so i can get my air brush out again.

y33trek, your truck is real nice!! I like how you put the buggy wing on the back! Did the addition of the wing improve the handling of the truck?

Nitrohead 5300, yes it did seem to make it more stable and keeps the rear planted at speed. Also makes a handy carrying handle. Ive just fitted proline powerstroke shocks but i haven't had a chance to test them out yet.

Im running a Fantom Fr18 with a works pipe & 20% o'donnell fuel.

It's a good combination, the only down side is having to gear it down to stop wheelies.

With the original gearing it would backflip onto the roof. I've fitted a wheelie bar now to stop it ripping the back of the shell off.
