i've got friends who have BL setups in their m18s, but none with an 8000. I have a mini rage 8000 that might go in the one I just bought on ebay. I'll let you know what happens with it. :lol:

KingsKID, Just wanted to let you know that Stormer still has some graphite upgrade kits available. it's not the full kit but it has most of the parts that are added to the SE M18 I believe it is only minus the servo saver and 180 heat sink. Hope this helps with your quest..

BULL!

About running brushless and breaking parts...

I've run brushless (and quite a few powerfull brushed...) and the cars hold up very well.

The parts I've broken most often are the outer wheel snapping off which comes from going full speed and then rubbing the side walls of the track which catches something...normal breakage. The same has broken off a knuckle. In both cases this was extreme speed induced. At the Pottbelly's race this year I only broke one wheel all weekend and I did many many runs and the car was punished.

Otherwise these cars are solid and can take a beating.

Hunter I would get the Alum axles and the ball diffs to help hold the power.

Rugzilla- Thanks, that helps me to decide on what motor to use.

That sounds GREAT to me. I will be buying a M18 kit ASAP to put me Brushless in . Looks like the car should hold up real good.

thank you

well, got my m18 on wednesday,heading to the track tonight to race 1/10th touring if everthing's setup on the little guy we'll run it too!
Stuck the mini rage with the 8000 kv in it and throddled it down. I'm trying a 15-42 gearing to start, may have to take it down a bit (small carpet track, mid 9's in 1/10th). Anyone ever do a rollout on this car? LOL

For those wanting to race there is the new M18 Pro.

It has a new graphite chassis that will hold a 6 cell pack, new adjustable flex uperdeck, new hex axles and tires, and ball diffs. check it out.

I´m getting into 1/18 world and I wonder If I can buy the M18PRO, but use the traditional Power pack, since in the club the use just 5 cell batteries, and stock motors.

My question is because the 5 cell battery is smaller than the 6 one, so it could be moving inside the battery holder the car or it´s enough held or tied to the car?.

Other question...does the M18PRO comes with the body?

Yes, you can use the traditional power pack.

The Battery is held in slots. If you think the top hold down will allow too much play, you could add some foam under the hold down to hold it firmer in place. I do this with my lipo packs, and it works fine.

Hello, folks, new member here and first post. :)

I'm planning on getting an m18 kit as an early X-Mas present. I am pretty much brand new to the RC world having only just got a Traxxas Rustler VXL a few months ago. I want the m18 to have fun around the house, in the garage, and out in my driveway. My question is should I just get the basic Power Pack that XRay offers, or would the more powerful version of it be a better use of my money? I doubt I'll be racing it as the RC scene in my area is almost nonexistant, but I still want to be able to have some performance, otherwise I'd just buy a toy type RC, hehe. :wink:

Thanks for any help you guys can muster!

Draven I would buy the stuff by its self if I was you.

The m18 will not be real good out in the street unless it is very smooth the ground clearance is very little.

Main issue is I don't know what all I would need to get to finish out the kit. Well, I know what is needed, I just don't know what of each of those parts would work with the m18. Like, I said, completely new to the RC scene.

Anyway, I just went with getting the RTR kit from A Main Hobbies, I actually needed to get it ASAP for something I want to do with it for school, so I unfortunately couldn't wait to get all the stuff together. Thank you for the input though, it is very appreciated.

OK. I am new to 1/18 scale and the idea of building your own car but, i think i can do it with a little help. I just purchased a rolling chasi (xray M18 ) on ebay and want to build it. I have a rough idea what i will need, tell me how this looks and what else i will need... and tips of any kind will help too.
-i have an old Lynx-Hitec radio (i believe a 2 channel from a gas car)
-Multiplex servo Tiny S
-Protoform Mazda Body
-CC Mamba performance Brushless Package (motor + ESC) Lipos
-A reciever (undecided- will the one from my gas car work or will i need a mini one)
- Lipo's and a Lipo charger (Undecided again, what sizes and whats a good charger)
-A pinion gear (WHAT SIZE IS GOOD?)
Thanks for looking, Hi to everyone, and hope this post is in the right section.
