Looks great. I love the modena shell. I use it on both mine and my wifes HPI Micros. Speaking of which, i should really post up some pics of hers since its working and almost complete.

Thanks for the comments guys !!!
I’m looking for a small ESC (Novak Spy!!!) at the moment !!! as I was using my Quantum Comp ESC on it but is was a bit of over kill so I sold it with my Corally C4.1 a few months ago..
And yeah Adam post up some pix of your HPI’s I was going to get a micro but saw the M18 stock kit and couldn’t resist then saw all the hopups and couldn’t resist them either !!!

I’m not impressed with the novak spy especially when the novakXRS is around the same price. It can handle 540 motors down to 15turns.
thats my wifes car. nearly there, its running 9 GP1100’s and a 480 motor.

its a shame i cant get the shells down as far as yours though. cant blame you for going the m18 over the mrs4, i’ve heard nothing but good about them and will probably end up getting one myself.

They both look sweet !!!!!
Why cant you get the cover lower, is it because of the rear shock ???
What speeds are you getting out of the one withthe VSM installed ???
Whats the damage on the XRS esc ??

Hey, Just thought i’d add some updated pix of my M18..
and this one shows the closer shot of the hubs and CVD’s

Unfortunately, cant get the shell down on mine, the motor is just too big (540 motor) but im still tinkering with my wifes car (480 motor) and with better placement of components might be able to get it down further.
The 540 has only been driven a couple of times but i’ve had itover 80kph. I think that the XRS was only USD$55 from memory i bought it from tower hobbies.

80k’s, SWEET !!!
Thank for the info on the XRS !! going to tower’s site now !!!

Thanks, I’m happy with the performance of the 540, probably wont change the motor, only running a stock.
Tower have been good for me, i’ve put 4 orders through them now, waiting on the most recent to arrive.
I’m building a new micro for a friend in sydney at the moment which should be quite impressive, it’ll run a 480 sized brushless motor and 9 cells. Its only a chassis at the moment so i wont post any pics until it looks a bit more complete.
