Default Possibly a new project for Takedown?

Ok Ive noticed my Micro-t hasnt been running in like 4 months so I decided well instead of just fixing it up why not insanely modify and upgrade it... I plan to get alot of stuff.
This is what I plan on getting here soon.

1) Losi Xcelorin BL ESC- https://killerhobbies.storesecured.c...530-detail.htm

2) Losi Xcelorin 10250kv BL motor- https://killerhobbies.storesecured.c...545-detail.htm

3) Losi micro-t lipo setup- https://killerhobbies.storesecured.c...862-detail.htm

4) 3 racing shox- http://minihobbyshop.com/store/index...oducts_id=7085)

5)Losi Titanium Turnbuckle Tie Rods- http://www.thetoyz.com/cart/thetoyz_...name=MICRO%20T

6) Ximpact body- http://www.thetoyz.com/cart/thetoyz_...name=MICRO%20T

7) Aluminum tranny case- http://www.thetoyz.com/cart/thetoyz_...name=MICRO%20T

8) Wheelie bar- http://www.thetoyz.com/cart/thetoyz_...20MICRO%20BAJA

9) Threaded Shafts f/r- http://www.thetoyz.com/cart/thetoyz_...name=MICRO%20T http://www.thetoyz.com/cart/thetoyz_...name=MICRO%20T


This project if I end up doing it wot be able to be started until near chrsitmas because I still have to catch up on a few other projects of mine.

I would buy the brushless motor and esc package. It is only $50.00. http://teamlosi.com/Products/Default...rodID=LOSB9594 Tell me when it is done!

Dude, Get the 3 racing shocks. They are actually oil filled versus just aluminum versions of the stock. They really make a difference on how the trucks handles and jumps/lands.

You also don't want a wheelie bar. In order to use it, the slipper will have to be overtightened. Which reduces the tranny life. Which is increased exponentially by using a 2 cell serial lipo.

Your paying 14 dollars for those gpm. 21 for the oiled. So its only 7 more? Otherwise the GPM shocks you linked have NO value other than being metal. I don't think they even are meant for grease. Your better off with the stocks if $7 more is going to kill you. [sm=bananahead.gif]

If you go brushless you will need a new reciever too. Just a heads up.

I broke 4 rear carriers on my micro t with lipo and atomic bb motor. I'm going to get aluminum rear carriers and rear camber links once i have some money.

Also get aluminum steering links. The stock ones SUCK!.......A LOT! Cant wait to see how yours turns out.

Mini Me, My Micro T does wheelies like crazy with the stock slipper tightness. My tranny is fine
