    switching engines

    yo
    so ive got this 2 off road cars(electric), however one of them is not in use cause it has a problem with the right front wheel, however, the problem is that the used one got a perfect build but is a bit weak( 6 volt engine), the not used one got
    a 9,6 volt engine, so if i remove the complete backblock with the weak engine and replace it by the strong one, will it just go faster or will the circutboards blow??? the accu is easy to replace they both got a tamiya plug and both accu packs fit in the other car
    plz leave a comment and thnx for reading

    First off, it's called a "motor", not an engine. Secondly, what model do you have? What brand?

    judging by the "6 volt" and "9.6 volt", i'm guessing toy grade.

    RE: switching engines

    yeah srry for my bad english, im dutch by the way and just 15 years old. its going about a simple artin truck of 9.6 volt and a gear 2 play beach buggy of 6 volt both brushed
    and yes it is just toy quality, but i gotta start somewhere. and i know these things are pretty good if you upgrade them.
    but if its not worth the time then i will look for some better stuff.
    thnx for the tips.
    but why the hate, if you dont got anything helpfull to say, just leave right now. im not calling people retarts cause they spend 1200 euros on a electric rc car as well.
    so why hating me?? i heard this site was losing people cause they get bored cause nothing gets posted, im at least asking pro,s for help.

    I hope that you didn't find my post offensive. I was simply trying to get some helpful info. Toy grade is fine if that's all you can afford. At one time, that's all I could afford too. Good luck.

    RE: switching engines

    Yea you are cool, mein freund, nobody is hating on you here. You should however understand that the toy grade ones are just that: toys. I would drop them and get even just a cheap hobby-grade RC. No need to go big money or full flash, either, especially for your first kit. many companies offer great beginner vehicles for a fraction of the cost you listed. the plus side, as well, is when you run hobby-grade, breakages will not stop you for good, you can just buy replacement parts! I am unsure of your budget, or i would be better able to recommend you a good starter kit.

    I understand about having to spend the money on other things first. Once you do get the money, though, there are plenty of beginner based RCs out there for around $120 USD. Take a look at the ECX lineup. There stuff is pretty good for the price. I actually did a review over their Boost.

    RE: switching engines

    To OFF-ROAD-ELECTRO-FLASH's defence: here in europe engines and motors are the same, and the same here in Norway: when i say motor to someone here, it can be both combustion and electric driven.

    Sorry for going a bit off topic
