    RE: SPORTWERKS chaos 1/16 buggy

    RE: SPORTWERKS chaos 1/16 buggy

    been out terrorising tarmac an lite jumps chaos was going well till centre diff cup came away from diff, was due to centre screw popped out. Sorted that 2 tanks on then rear pinion stripped lasted longer then expected So in went metal pinions front an rear, also dropped in a metal geared servo for thottle as stock wasn't getting full throw even tho EPA on radio was at max [] proper now want to fit metal gear servo on steering just saver gotto sort.
    waiting on weather to get better/dry then out bedding in pinions

    RE: SPORTWERKS chaos 1/16 buggy

    Good job RJ...that sounds like my story 2 or 3 years ago. I've had the Trinity metal pinions for some time now, and use my patented "fill-hole hole" with Associated 5000 wt Silicone oil (very thick); this stuff doesnt seep out much, and I can visually check the gears and fill it often. Check out some of my posts from way back when to see pics.

    ORIGINAL: Team X

    Well here it is my first nitro conversion; I just finished it last night
    Mamba 25 ESC
    Algin 430 Motor
    Stock Receiver & steering servo
    Elite 1500mah 7 cell battery
    15t 32 pitch pinion gear with stock spur gear
    Not my best work but it’s ok
    We will see how long the diffs last


    Ok I've been trying to find info in this thread, but there are so many pages, I'm getting blurried eyed.
    I'm about to try and do an electric conversion on my Chaos. Has anyone figured out a way for it to survive Brushless?
    Should I just stick with a Brushed version?
    Is there anything posted like instructions on converting? Or is it simply just remove all nitro stuff, make a bracket to hold the motor, and add electronics?

    RE: SPORTWERKS chaos 1/16 buggy

    Got some spring fever this weekend here in NY and I got out the chaos and was terrorizing my neighborhood. I just LOVE the way it sounds like a mini screaming F1 racer down the block!

    I also tried a bit of grass and a pebble path on the side of my house (very careful to ensure smooth power application and to keep up momentum to preserve the glass diffs). Looks like there is a small leak in the head somewhere since I have oil around the glowplug and some out the back of the head. Buggy is now a mess, but still so much FUN!

    RE: SPORTWERKS chaos 1/16 buggy

    Just picked up one of these brand new for a hundred buck$. Its a fun little car. Only did 3 tanks so far and the first 2 was breaking it in. Running like a champ for now. Reading up on these, and the diffs seem the weak link. What can I do to beef em up, or are there any diffs that are compatible with the Chaos? I know it's discontinued, but its a mini nitro and so dam cool.

    RE: SPORTWERKS chaos 1/16 buggy

    I figured that I would try to resuscitate this thread before it completely flatlines...
    My original stock Chaos (with Trinity metal pinions...) is running good, and I inherited a brand new one with all the factory aluminum hop-ups, shocks, and Hitec metal gear servos. This will be my new baby and I hope to get it all together in the next few weeks. Weather here in SoCal is getting good for some bashing so the smell of nitro in the air will be my X-mas present to myself. Now to find a source for the new pinions...any ideas???

    i remember my trinity next, what a heap, even with the aluminum diffs, it would strip them in a hot second.

    Anyone tried the metal diff from the Hobbyking 1/16 nitro buggy on the Chaos? Would be nice if the parts are compatible.

    RE: SPORTWERKS chaos 1/16 buggy

    Wow, thread is still ALIVE!!!

    Thought I'd mention I ran my Chaos about a month ago and it was still going great until the 3rd tank where it just stopped even though the engine was still going. I thought for sure it was finally the diffs; however it turned out that the engine mount screws all loosened up to the point where the pinion was no longer touching the main gear. I can't believe they used such puny cheesy philips screws to hold down the engine.

    I see prices for it going up quite a bit on Ebay.
