1st 2 are of my jammin X1x CRT before I ran it (actually the 2nd is from before I even had its rims)
3rd on the left is my Jammin .5 CRT (well both are jammin .5 CRT's the right one I extended, and made into a 1/8th scale buggy) I never took a pic with its shell on cause I kinda never got around to painting it, and just use an old one I had off the one I made a buggy...

There aren't any generic 'truggy pics threads' in here because this isn't the truggy forum.

I don't have any issue with creating a new brushless truggy pics thread, but to be in this forum, you need to change the title to say 'electric truggy pics thread', as there are already several general truggy pics threads in the truggy forum. (EDIT: I went ahead and did it for you).

Here are mine...

My Mugen MBX5T Prospec, now sold to a close friend...

This has the Mamba Monster Max 2200kv combo in it strapped into a Tekno V3 42mm Mugen MBX5T conversion. I was running it on 6S Zippy Lipos, and it has an XP DS1015 steering servo.




And this is my recent acquisition, my Xray XT8 2009 spec, again using a Mamba Monster Max 2200kv combo, again using an XP DS1015 steering servo, this time all strapped into the RC-Monster XT8 brushless conversion. Again, I run it on 6S, the pair of 2S batts in the photos are in there only because they look good. lol.

I really should get some truggy tires for my X1 those masher 2k's on 4S at 70% throttle balloon up to look like giant pizza cutters jacking it up like an inch and a half, and then causing the truggy to then take to the air. But eh I only paid $1 for the set of 4 pretty much brand new

Tamiya TRF 801xt Woof.


Shell-off pic taken with a crappy 80A EZRun ESC in there. I run with an MMM now. I'd take a new pic, but that would require me to clean up the inside.

Must be a difference in ESC's themselves, I run an 80A XERUN in my 8ight and the stupid thing is almost TOO quick, this buggy takes the nitros on the straights locally

It is my opinion that this platform (the Xray XT8 2009 specs with the RC Monster conversion and alloy Xray ISS suspension holders) is arguably the finest electric truggy money can buy. I waited a very long time for a new XT8 2k9 at the right price to justify the huge expense of putting this car together. It still needs much stiffer suspension (still using kit default springs and oils which are designed for lightweigt 4S batteries, my pair of 3Ses is 2.3lb) that's why the ride height adjuster rings are almost at the bottom of the shock bodies.

As for how fast it will go, as fast as I gear it. The motor will do nearly 50,000rpm on 6S, so currently with its 13t pinion it does about 50mph which is as fast as I need it to go. The acceleration is ferocious. I'm planning to try a different motor soon, 2200kv is a bit high for 6S, motor gets quite warm quite quickly.

I guess I should clarify. The 80A ESC was having issues before this, it's not that it couldn't handle the truggy. I just went bye-bye (was running it for a while in other rigs, it was past its prime).

It is st00pid fast, even on just 4s.

Here is a old one I have. nothing speical but damm its fun on 3s with 3900kv motor. Its been one of my best back yard bashers yet, short gearing makes it just ideal for inclosed area's. For a cheap r/c car thats all rusted up, its got extreemly good rolling resistance. best ive ever seen on a 4x4...

everyone thinks pancake power is where its at, when really nothing is more powerful than waffle power, extra surface area means this baby has more syrup capacity for more torque.
