I am really new in the RC world but I was looking for a proper topic for the HPI Mini Recon and this brought me here.
Soo first my important question - I want to try putting tires from bigger RC on the MR, but I am not really familiar with the other cars on the market, so ca you recommend my anything bigger that you think will be able to fit the recon without to much modifications and effort?
And if any of you is interested here is what we \me and a friend of mine\ have done with the Mini Recon so far...
The original ESC was changed by Turnigy TrackStar 18A 1/18th Scale Brushless Car ESC + small 3100kV Brushless Motor and a 1800 mAh LiPo \fits perfectly on the place on the original one\. We also did some modifications on the isolation for the "vulnerable" parts so the car can run on snow.
BTW this \in the video\ is not the full potential of the motor, because at the time of the "video shoot" I have forgot the Turnigy TrackStar ESC Programing Car and the motor was running on lowest frequency. Anyway the recon is a lot of fun for driving on snow/ice.
So now I have some cool ideas for visual modifications, but we will see how the things will go :P
