    I don't see that arm squeezing down enough to make the studs work. If you could change them out then you could use heavy...

    How sure are you that this isn't more to do with how your controller is programmed than anything else?

    They already look class from a distance.
    Barring some smoothing to the edges I'd change very little about them - maybe finish to MV grey.

    I'm with greg on this. I don't see any way to handle that sort of unsprung mass in a sports chassis.
    I could be convinced of a cruiser alright, but even the biggest sports or tourer chassis would...

    Looks like a nice easy fitout dude - great job so far - and well done on the parts selection.

    I have an old CBR F2 Chassis here with two forktruck motors in it. They do the job just fine for playing around and learning, and they're cheap and easy to control.

    Sounds to me like what you need is a Vectrix VX-1.



    You don't need to worry about that - the actual rotating (not reciprocating) components in an ICE motor aren't that substantial.

    1 - battery prices
    2 - battery volume
    3 - battery mass

    The former means that 100km worth of pack is going to cost...

    Unsprung mass is unlikely to affect the handling of a machine like that all that adversely - I wouldn't be too concerned.
    Take a look at this thread for some relevant commentary.
