Emoli cells might be better, they are a little more weight but I think they are cheaper and Im sure there are plenty of runryder memebers who have old packs or cells not going to use

I think this could be a neat little project, but looking at it from an engineering perspective, I think you are going to have some problems with reliability. The chassis is plastic and the drive train will not hold up.

You should work for one of the big three...

Well, I stated that my friends dad will build another flat chassis that will ride up against the bottom of the plastic part. And it's not like we'll be takin it off jumps or anything
Still can't decide on a motor, much less find anything mentioned here.

Yeah, if you arent gonna make it stupid fast or take it off some really cool jumps why bother

I dont see the point of having stupid fast if you dont have stupid high (as in jumps) too...

A little update.
My friend has one of those little electric motorcycles and that thing has a huge brushed motor and a proportional speed control. We're gonna see if we can squeeze it in somehow. If that doesn't work. I think we'll have to pick up a 'model intended' set-up. I was thinking one of those massive brushed airplane set-ups. Basically, I haven't been able to find a treadmill or power wheel chair. Well I've found some wheel chairs, but they're like $500.
Maybe a mamba set-up kinda like the guy had on the video...Is there one that accepts the equivalence of like a 10S lipo??
