I don't know what batteries he got in there.

He mentioned he was running 4s lipo on RCU. Hence the reason when he nails it, it doesn't do a complete backflip.

More importantly, it looks like it handles shit hot on a track. Could be a Revo killer with some mods.

If that is 4S then on 6S that thing MUST be a MONSTER.
I'm stupefied. :eek::eek::eek:

looks too big for that track:D nice, but the suspension looks too plush - definately needs 8 shocks. nice. I wish the video showed the full runtime on those batt packs.:cool:

Now here's my question.
Witch the better diff's ? The E-revo sealed ones .... or the sturdy Savage ones.
I've seen a movie on youtube with some monster 6S setup on a E-revo.
Aftermath was a crunched diff.

...what that video tells ME (personally) is that...

A: The HPI wheelie bar is about as useful as tits on a bull...

B: The stock roll center needs to be lowered and the steering needs some work...(RB geometry :))

C: It needs to be extended ad lowered...(GCM :))

...I already counted on B and C, (HPI traits) but A is a surprise...I still back up my plan of making it ANTI-wheelie right from the get-go...Was good to see it finally out in the open like that though...

...and here is the attached article written by RC Squid and the guys who made the video...Notbad...Pretty much what we know but good to get a handle on it right from the start...


...Thanks to HPI for providing the link...

First thing to do will be to turn that wheely bar upside down, so it hangs about 1/2 an inch off the deck. That'll combat the wheelies a bit.

Needs a length injection though, definitely.

I agree about the wheelbase, it needs to be a good 1.5 inches longer (atleast). That should take care of some of the wheelies.

Odds on that Generis will be on the case once he has got hold of a flux. I have to say that it does look sweet on the track, just need to tame the wheelies a bit and it will be a true track eating basher!

Man, that is cool. I cant wait, I got mine ordered.

...i had the wheelie bar upside down on my esav at one stage...Pictures are in my gallery somewhere...It worked well and didnt get caught up much at all...I just have to remember how i mounted it...I reckon thats the go...

...rest assured that GCM will be releasing a longer chassis for it...AND with RoadBoy angles it should handle like a dream...Im all tingly :o

the pictures are bad quality, i'd like to see a video of it on loose graval, and see it turn at high speed. eventually at that track's curves he has limited space, it doesnt looks near 100kph.

would it do backflips on graval too? is it carpet on that track ? there is not even a dust corn inthere
