    Default FWD drag car

    Sorry for the bad pic, but this is my scratch built drag car.
    Its got an aluminum pan and a mamba 6900 on 12 cells. It goes like a bat out of hell, but Im having a hard time finding tires that won't explode.:(


    If anyones interested I'll try and get some better pics.

    Do you s'pose the 5700 and an 11.1 lipo would make a tire explode, I may try to recreate it if so...got lots of those tires kickin around.........

    Sorry guys its been kinda hectic the last few days. I will try and get some pics here today with the body off. I don't have any video of it I don't think, but I'll check with a buddy of mine that has videoed some racing at his place and see what he has.
    As for the tires exploding..it is cool but I really want to see what this thing could do.
    Specs are
    The mamba system of course
    I believe the trans is mostly old LOSI touring car
    the rear is alittle bit of everything (tlt, losi,stampede etc..)
    The rear wheels and tires are 1/18 grasshopper I think

    Thumbs up no doubt on that one.

    The out of the box thinking of "I am just going to build it" is nice to see, good job.
