Hi and welcome.

It's not hard to get a set together, what is you budget ???
If you want it to be compleet you need.
1> The car ( it comes with motor, body and tyres )
2> ESC price between 20 and 150 euros
3> Servo ( Xray has a good one but you could also go for Hitec )
4> Transmitter with reciever ( best go for a micro reciever )
5> Batteries they start at 750 MAh and go up to 2100 MAh
6> Charger doesent have to be expensive you can only change they with about 2 amps Max.

it will cost you in total between 350 and 500 euros

Cheers
Paul

Yes, the kit comes without motor, I suggest you get the #389100 Xray M18 Power Pack. The Power Pack includes micro stock motor with integrated capacitor board, micro ESC with reverse, high-quality micro servo with metal gears, and a 5-cell micro battery pack containing high-performance 2/3A NiMH cells. More info you can find here at http://www.teamxray.com/teamxray/products/proddesc.php?prod_id=757&kategoria=744

@pinkie :
Depends on the size of the tracks or places you can use. In Europe weather gets cold and wet now so it's time to race indoor. But halls to race 1/10 are expensive, especially in towns like Vienna. So we race 1/18 in a room with little more than 50m².

There are two reason: Less space than 1/10 is needed, equipment is much cheaper, high tech like 1/10 scale. Good practice when weather is bad ...

Around here we run the micros on the same track that we run the 10 scales on..... And with compex mambas (8000) in them they are turning about the same lap times as 19 turn sedans....

So with the right amount of money placed in the right places you can beat 1/10 scale 19 turn sedans with your lil M18..... such a satisfying thought...lol

Im from south NJ, we race M18's competitivly and have a great time doing so. I run a 300 sized motor and everything holds up wonderfully except ive been expierencing problems with the spur gear. Its difficult to obtain proper gear mesh, and even when i do the spur seems to soften up after four or five races. I guess my question is, is xray going to release spurs and different parts within the drivetrain in a stronger, more durable material. I know the xray M18 wasnt orginally intended to run size 300..and other hot motors but its become the more popular way to run these cars where i race. Parts that can take the heat and wear well would definatly be on my shopping list. Thanks.

I also own a M18, running it with the graupner 300 motor with 5 cells. My gears are also weak and bad condition after a few races.
GPM (http://gpmracing.com.hk/front/front.html) is out with pinion gears (aluminum) and spur gears (delrin). So this should be the answer to all M18 owner with that problem.

The next thing what I don't like is the way to put the tires on the car. I like the way as it is at 1:10th cars and on www.rc-tiger.com you will find the parts to it called "2025 - Felgenumrüstsatz XRAY", in XRay Zubehör.
The wheels are also to find in that rubric, the rubbers you will find in:
WWS 1:18 PRO ST, Reifen und Felgen. If you got any questions feel free to post it.

Excause my english, I wasn't the best at school :-}

Your dad is for sure a wise person and you should always listen to what he says, but perhaps you could ask him to see this film? :wink:

Ball diffs - grease them or not?

Recently I`ve bought ball differential for my M18. The short manual attached says nothing about greasing the differential.
Is it so obvious that the balls should be greased that Xray did not even write about it or the M18 diff does not need to be lubricated?

I`d like to learn Xray`s position on this question.

Thank you.

There is no need to grease the M18 diff.

No, there will not be such a conversion kit as the M18T has too many specific and new parts, that is it much easier to buy a complete kit.
