Depends on what you want... I mainly build dancer/ fronthopper cars since a backhopping car looks almost never good...but with some balancing it can be done.

I use 2 small HO motors in the back and a fast 130 motor up front.
Also in the back use some small fishing weights, just add a few until your satisfied with the result.

Your lines have to run as smooth as possible I always try to run the line directly to the motors having only friction on one point and that's a piece of round brass.

Hopefully this will help a bit, just take a look at some of my pictures on my indexpage. ;)

nah, if it were a true replica, i would use batteries that would move the car really quick the first couple of times, and then slow down to a stop after a few more hits... lol
