    isn't an air dam actually "adding drag" ? would adjusting the CG % be a better answer ? Harry

    Battery question

    I have been told 140 degrees is the absolute limit for a motor. Any higher will damage it internaly. Remember heat is the enemy. I can't tell you how long it will last. I can tell you to put a GPS in it to check the speed. Harry S.

    Lipo Lowdown From My POV.

    Andrew, Where I live Max Amps 10 AH cells (10C) cost $50 each, 6 times $50 = $300. Also 10C = 100 amps. Harry

    40" Dumas Skater Cat

    This comment hits the nail on the head..... I will try the sponson correction. What about a H & M Supercat XL ? I can get one used ( good price ) it is 50" long & it is wider too & it is a good quality peice too. I am just sport running & I believe the OPS .80 will push it fast enough to have fun.
