I finally gave my ET48 2.0 it's first run, if you can call it that, I get the car going on the back yard just to get some initial feelings about the set up and performance. I'm really happy with the build and I think it's going to be a lot of fun. Hoping to get to the track this weekend for a proper run.

this video is long and pretty boring, hope you enjoy it, haha.

Yeah I don't know if you noticed the extra hole in the plastic on the servo/esc tray, but when I mounted it straight the sensor cable was too close to the box mounting hole and it was touching. The easiest solution was to skew it to get the extra clearance I needed. I also mounted the esc on an angle to get as much of it on the chassis as possible, I wanted to have as little overhang as possible.

Lookin good you should grab another one instead of wasting money on the talion v5
Yeah I'm not likely to get one now, this is going to be a basher unless I get back into racing again, I have to drive 2 hours to get to the track each time, so I can't practice and get there every week. The track is getting rebuilt so I am looking forward to a new layout and facilities, hopefully I'll get a run this weekend at the old track, but it's been raining so it might be called off.

If I could sort out a couple of things like the battery tray and esc mounting position I wouldn't even look back. I just have so many Arrma parts and know those cars inside out.

I've been trying to sell my M2C modded Kraton to fund a new car, the truggy is a frustrating design as it is brilliant to drive and setup, but the cost of everything is higher, we have to pay $130 AUD ($100 US) for a set of tyres, which we burn up in a day.

I love the way they handle and jump though.
