Yeah I've got two of those Carbon Orions, one puffed up bad and is dumping early though. On my last 12th I used Speedpower 6000's, they were great and inexpensive IIRC.

Does anyone use one of these: http://hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__ ... r_ESC.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; ??

Just got a second hand R125.1 to fit out. My other option is a Hobbywing 1S V3.1, at considerably greater cost.

New toy.

Went together beautifully. Some notable differences over the xray... In particular the lack of a thrust bearing and dual side spring locations. Installed the Gravity rc side springs which gives me some extra options.
Now to get it scratched :-)

Hi guys probably a old topic but what is the most popular rear tires for low grip Tarmac racing. I have a old crc pro12 I'm running in Hawkesbay and want to do a order for some new tires. Best rears I've used so far have been CRC yellows.

I never noticed that! Technically you only need one link, all its doing is stopping the pod from rotating, in fact a single link eliminates the potential binding of a 2 link system
