Sometimes they list non-brushless ones cheaper. Just watch their auctions for when they post them.

I have only ran it once. not used my radar gun on it yet. Not sure exact speed. Yes it is an out runner. makes one wonder how it wil handle the dust. Will see over time.

i would recommend the mamba 5700
great gearing options
great battery options
or the 6800

or if u just want to go all out fast
go with the 8000

then theres always a hacker =)
lol

Once you go brushless calvino you will wonder why you didnt do it sooner ! It makes the RC18 a completely different car .

I agree also the 5700-6800 are the best options , I have a 8000Kv motor in mine and its pretty wild , too much if the dirt is real loose .

Well, it has been a while...i broke my rear shock tower doing a double front flip

and then my littly plastic things on the bottom of the shock that hold the spring on fell off of both front shocks. So then i take it to the skate park and it runs perfect, pulled off a couple flips put of the bowls and did a crazy gap over the pyramid, then landed on a bench and snapped the front shock tower... Oh and i biult a sweet track in my side yard, ill get a vid of it in a week or so....Some more pics, anjoy,


And this is my friends mess of a car, he got it a year ago, stripped a diff, kept drivin and stripped the other one. Then got bored one day and took the whole car apart, a year later tries to find all tha parts and put it back together. By the in the biginning it was like this

and in the end i was worse, he had throttle linkages from a savage cut and used for pins to hold the a-arms on, and wood screws holding the shock towers on....i really thing this guy should not be in this hobby.

Just get some 1/10 wheel adapters and use touring car wheels . The Losi Street Meats are ok and grip decent , but I couldnt get them to stay on the wheel . Foam tires and traction compound is the way to go if you really want to stick though .






Studysession , I wouldnt bother with the AE wing and mount , the DT Vendetta wing and mount are MUCH more durable and pretty easy to mount too the shock tower .....

Where did you get your sedan wheel adapters? Thetoyz.com are always out of stock.

are these the wheel adapters? they are kind of pricey.

yesterday i took the whole truck apart and re did both diffs. i bought one diff so i put that in but now im having some heat issues. i think its because i put a little to much lube on them, i dont really care, they should work in. luckily its cold outside so i can got all out and it still wont get warm.

i think im just gonna break down and get a reedy stump puller, how is the top speed? im going to gear it 11/60 with trinity street tires.

I ordered the wheel adapters as well and should be here this week or next. I plan on putting 1/10 scale sedan rally wheels on mine though. More clearence but still a bit of an off-road look. I put Tamiya drift wheels on my TT-01 so taking the rally wheels from it.
