Clapwhos got the fastest? my set up is ofna lx1e turnigy 40c 5000mah mambamonster with added capacitors neu/castle 2650 grp m01 rally tires.With gearing 51/26 in 150  feet it can do 85. At  200 ft. with same gearing 96-97mph.Gearing cahnged to 36/26 which is a final gear ratio of 1:38 the car goes 74mph at 100 ft. but after 250 ft 94 mph   top out 110mph at 450 ft. "SOME WILL CLAIM FASTER BUT IN WHAT DISTANCE WHY GO 100MPH IN 1000 FEET OR MORE THAT IS CALLED SPEED PASSES IF YOU LINE UP A FUNNY CAR VS A LAMBORGHINI WHO IS FAST  I  RACE FOR E.T. ELAPSED TIME".Nuke

BTW, if you've done 110 your LX1e has a World Record. Of course, you'd need to make it official.Big smile

Cheerz!

I have a Schumacher MI3 with foam hard nitro treads (cut down) and we ran out of road at 92mph (150kph) Turnigy 7.5T and 5ah 11.8v. Tall gears and very tight steering & suspension.
Do not argue with an idiot. They will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

Ha that makes my e revo brushless seem slow.It only goes 82mph. Well for a truck that is a lot bigger than those cars and an unaerodynamic body and offroad tires I am actually rather proud of its top speed. Will post video soon.
