    RE: Lunchboxer's TXT-1 project...

    That's some serious Tamiya gear right there man.

    I like the New Era skid plate, looks like they machined it really well.

    Does the kit come with a canteliver system or is that a change option? I think canteliver systems give R/C trucks a better and more realistic travel action.

    I think you TXT will come out to be the same wieght as my JunFac as it is quite heavy right now. I think our trucks will be fairly even in speed considering the shaft drive vs axel drive. Yours is going to handle better in the long run though.

    Can't wait to see the beast.

    BTW, it amazes me that Tamiya is still including MSC with their kits.

    RE: Lunchboxer's TXT-1 project...


    Actually, for TXT / Clod, I can kind of understand it.. as there's really not that many dual motor ESCs out there.. so a MSC is a cheap way to get people going..

    Although, for people who dropped this kind of $$$ on their RCs.. no doubt they will want a high performance ESC.. !!

    RE: Lunchboxer's TXT-1 project...


    Yeah, there's actually a gear reduction built into the axle.. (so the shaft goes in, drives another gear, then, the gear drives the diff gear..) This way, I see 2 things happening..

    1. it can move the driveshaft higher.. instead of at the center of the diff, it is now on top..
    2. it is now applying less torque to the axle.. (but higher rpm) This way, it will take away some of the torque twist associated w/ the typical shaft drive..

    Just my speculation..

    Cantilever system is standard.. I just change out the canti from plastic ones to nice Tamiya blue..

    I think your car will put the power down better (no torque twist issue) but mine will have less unspung weight.. "might" handle slightly better.. (again, just guess..)

    RE: Lunchboxer's TXT-1 project...

    I havent put a single hop up on my TXT (except for an ESC of course). That thing is too big, I have considered putting some things on, but the cost would be another R/C car, so I go with the R/C car.....(repeat)

    Hee hee... I know, the hop-ups are pretty expensive!! Those aluminum cantilevers and the axle holders (will use those during the axle build..) adds up to be easily another Tamiya kit.. LOL!

    What ESC are you running?!

    I didn't personally. I believe they are included in the TXT-1 kit.

    Basically just really heavy wire, but they work well.

    Hmmm, i need those for my truck.

    looks like they are attached with the zip tie and then secure with a hole in the link at the end of the wire?

    RE: Lunchboxer's TXT-1 project...

    Right on, the only thing extra I added was a few pieces of fuel hose to cushion them from the 4-links.

    Completely unnecessary, but it gives them a little something to flex against instead of wearing on the metal links.

    Yeah, give me a minute.

    I'm not at home, but I took this from a higher resolution source image, I'll take a real closeup when I get home.

    RE: Lunchboxer's TXT-1 project...

    I modded a Futaba ESC for the while, but Ive finally decided I should get something meant for it-a Novak Superduty, or if not an EVX. I wont run it till I get it, of course, but I skipped one for YET another R/C, so I think quantity is beating me over will anything (big) run?

    TEX, didn't I suggest you doing the same thing for your Clod with this setup in your Clod thread?! You probably didn't see it then... (when you mentioned the lean after your test run..)

    If you are running stock 540 silver can, I am pretty sure any low turn ESC can handle it.. but yeah, SuperDuty XR is probably a better way to go.. I'd suggest you get that over the EVX.. as it is only like $25 or so more..
