I got a Losi Micro-T for Chrismas and put some FPV gear on it. It's fun but the suspension is bottom out with the gear so a smooth ride is out of the question. It does very well inside on a smooth floor and the cat is having fun with it .

Here are the latest mods I did to my FPV car. I added a pan servo that's tied in with the steering and some headlights. I got one of those things you clip on the bill of a ballcap and I can have either one, three or five lights

FPVpilot, if you have oil shocks, put heavier weight oil in. Put spacers on your shocks. You shouldnt have much trouble raising the suspension, 3Racing make some very nice alloy oil shocks if you dont have them.

Attached is my NT18T, 1/18th scale as well but nitro and upgraded to be a monster truck. I would really really love to see some video from your MiniT

yeah I know! They are harder and harder to find! I bought a camcoder about a year ago and it already didn;t have it! This sucks... I bought this - http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...=WEBLET03ORDER and I'm still waiting for it will see if it will be good.

Sorry to get off topic there..

You can find them at discount stores. I've seen them in walmart, kmart, dollar general and family dollar here. I got these yesterday and family dollar. Sometimes they are at the registers and sometimes around the batteries or automotive. You can have one three five or all five flashing. Pretty simple touch switch on the bottom.

Here's a video I did inside the house today doing some testing. It's a lot harder than I thought it would be. I'm sure I'll get the hang of it eventually though.

I'll post an outdoors one I did also as soon as it's done processing.

That's cool, you have the servos mixed for the steering and pan? I had that on my truck once and it makes it much easier to control the vehicle at higher speeds. I have to read my destructions to set that mix again. I noticed you have alot of throw on the servo,,,I added a servo strecher that allows the servo to turn towards the rear of your vehicle alittle. It's nice for getting out of situations, see what holding u up.

My partner found this one and has it on the way,,, it has all the right inputs and it fairly cheap.
