Afternoon Chris.
 
I notice that you run at Newbury, I am moving to the area over christmas, don't suppose you have a good setup for the MI4CX with the new longer top deck.
 
Thanks in advance.
 
See you in the new year.Tongue

I use the shorty style lipo batteries to drop the weight and to balance the car out better, I run the shorty style lipo 5mm further forward than the standard batt type and place the esc behind it. This leaves just the motor, reciever, servo and transponder on the other side so plenty of space left. I also have fitted a 40mm fan which I shoe goo to the chassis plate in front of the motor for extra cooling.

There is a picture of my car on Demonpowerproducts site, you can also buy the shorty lipo from there.
I have had to place 70g of extra weight on the chassis to bring it up to 1355g.

Hope this helps

Paul, I notice you seem to be running a non-standard capacitor for the Hobbywing esc.
Have you just replaced the standard cap board with a different capacitor?
 
Also how are you securing the lipo to the chassis having moved it forward 5mm?
 
Thanks for your advice.
Thank you for the help....

To move the lipo forwards you will have to dremel another battery tape slot in the chassis 5mm further forwards than the current slot at the front, then mount your shorty lipo and mark where you need to make the 2nd slot behind the battery and do the same there. Then you just tape the lipo is as per normal with your tape.

I replace the capacitor on the esc to a more powerful one as I ususally run modified, tbh you probably wouldn't need for any other class. If you want one again its on demonpowers web site there not expensive.
 
If you cant get the link to work go on www.demonpowerproducts.co.uk 
then look under batteries and you will see the Reedy shorty Lipo on that page, click on the battery and the picture is there. Wink

Hi,

If someone of the team who knows the MI5 has a few minute to have a look at my setup and give me his opinion, it would be very kind.
It's here : http://forum.racing-cars.com/forum_posts.asp?TID=16518&title=mi5-setup

Thanx

Vincent
