So I'm about to order the EZ-Run, but am wondering: Will a 13 turn brushless be too much for the Optima's transmission? I'm afraid the belt will skip...

no - the 13 should be about right where warm mods from bitd were... just don't go crazy with start mode (punch)

Okay, thanks. I figured already I had to turn down punch. :D

Oh dear, it's already almost been a year since I last updated this thread? :shock:

The car has received some minor upgrades, which I'll have to photograph, but what I'm really all excited about is this:

stickers2.jpg
I got these in a lot of parts (mostly Lazer Alpha bits). They are stickers for this body, but unfortunately for different color schemes. However, they contain a few stickers I need. Now I'm not going to cut these up. Instead I'll have a try at making my own stickers using an inkjet printer and scans of these two sheets. :D

I also saw that someone was selling one of these sheets for over 140 bucks :roll: on Ebay. Am I feeling lucky I paid only about 40 for the whole lot...
