Anyone spped up a Zig-Zag Racer

Hello All -

I'm a "Brushless Flying Wing" guy that's goofing around with a Zig-Zag racer and I was wondering...

Has anyone out there incresed the power on a ZigZag racer? More Voltage? Bigger Motor? I'm making this a summer project for fun....

Any reccomendations?

Thanks -

I made an 8-cell battery for mine. Proceeded to tear up the rubber coupler. So I then installed a dogbone driveline. Runs insanely fast on 8-cells.

Cool! That's exactly what I wanted to know!

Where can I get a Dogbone Driveline?

Mine was made up of old parts I had left over from years of packrat'ing. I imagine if you do a search for boating driveline components you will find parts to make one up.
