  1. I own a LRP 5000mAh high discharge rate, bought new for around 60$. Very heavy Ni-Mh pack, but my M03 drives over an hour with a 80A LRP forward reverse esc and LRP 23T Runner2 motor. I also had a 3000mAh battery, but it was very old and run times of 10 or under minutes. the charging time is very frustrating for nimh! As for lipo... dont even bother with NiMh if you are not somehow sentimental attached to them. I have a Nosram 3800mAh 55/110C discharge rate and a Turningy nano-tech 6.6, so 6600mAh with 65/130C discharge rate. the 6.6 on a 10T sensorless setup is enough for 45-60minutes, depends on driving style. the 3800mAh isnt noticable weaker, but driving time is shorter, more likely 25-40minutes. Also lighter then a 6.6. Did I mention the 5000mAh LRP NiMh is ridiculous heavy, cca 420gr in the LRP 5000 and for the 6.6 we are speaking of ruff 320gr and 290gr for the Nosram 3800. Also the charger I am using is a Quantum Cube E4, abshima makes them also, available on tamico.de. that is a basic charger without any settings. But it does charge from 2-4s @ 4A. Not recomended for small capacity batteries. 25$ So the 3800mAh battery is full in less then a hour, the 6.6 takes about one and a half hour. That is from empty to full, not from storage charge to full, that would be half the time.

    So, what have you done today?

    Took out my bike and cleaned it, did not see any running for over 6month as I had a leg injury. it is a Scoot Aspect 50 I already own 7 years. hopped up with downhill sun ditch rims, the front hub is a DT Swiss rear a common shimano hub. Also Hayes MX2 mehanical brakes. Custom selected grips, seat, pedals.... rear sprocket from SRAM with more teeth... This bike is nothing special, I paid more for hop ups then the bike itself then. That is why I cant let go of it.

    Very retro, I like it. I took today a couple of hours. swapped my M03 black XB chassis for a silver chassis. enjoyed it very much. Also swapped in a reinforced gear diff. This Mini is my new runner shell. I now... almost.. have a M03 and M05 out of spares and cant wait to build them. The M05 will have yeah racing upgrades. Both will have speed gears. Both could be up for sale then. But not in a near future. Starting my quadcopter build should be next on priority list.

    Me and my driving buddy went to our man cave and had some fun. he bought a rc racing lot. A Team Associated TC6.1 with lots of parts and a 3racing setup station. I immediately brought over my cars to have a look at te setup as we did not own a station until now. very nice, must get one! also mounted a few things to my F103 like servo saver cap and new front spoiler (third one in less then 6 months)

    FF03 Pro-R - My own version

    Maybe I have overseen... but what kind of setup do you run? motor esc and pinion choice? I got with mine a 45/85T combination in 48P. with a 4700kV motor. it is stupid fast

    Very nice. Really the best Tamiya chassis I had ever.

    Got some small budget onmy paypal account. I went to order my pit shimizu tires I have been using for a couple of months now, no# 0425, they were on clearance on Banzaihobby, but only 1pair, paid 1 pair of 0425 with shipping 4$. ended up ordering a pair od 0776 from rcmart and front pair of foam F103 zen tires for my f103LM. now waiting...

    Speed aerodynamics

    I always wanted such a 1/8 nitro racer with electric conversion. I think this chassis or similar ones are perfect speed run rockets. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F352617627269 4wd, 8s, sponge tires, pan car body only and full go! anyone owns one of these?

    That is what I would do also. I still do own and use daily my 16GB iPhone SE and I love it with its genuine leather case. When I would replace it, it would definately be a iPhone 7. Its the closest one to the size of the 5series. And battey is much better. Matter fact the iPhone 7+ has the biggest battey of all.

    Thank you @Jason1145, well I think the biggest problem was I did not order paint together with the body. So I went with alternatives, as the old shell wasnt very good cut in the first place. Alternatives lead to rushing in painting. I am happy about it. Interested to see how this body will affect handling and how dirty will it get. next body for it will be the Protoform D9 or Type S, probably one color blue or yellow with matched translusent windows. Also I will need a 13,5 motor, lipo holder, 89T 48P spur and another two 6600 batteries. I am attempting the last race this season only due to job obligations, it will be all fun, very excited about it, so this mazda can be a good training shell for the upcoming 6months whenever I will get time to.
