Default Short video of my km baja with my new cy gp290

Here's a short video of my king motor baja at the park. My receiver battery was about dead so the steering was a little slow. I just finished the 2nd tank on the the motor. So far I'm loving the cy gp290 way more power then the stock 23cc km motor. Upgrades Ive done so far are hpi hd diff,rear shock towers,modded the front hubs to remove c clips, ink pen springs on the brakes to keep the brakes from draggin, and rear proline badlands.new front servo is next.
Heres the video

Nice...now make sure you get a kill switch installed. Running on a low battery is asking for a lot of pain and suffering.

What kind of pipe do you have? It's very quiet!

Stock gearing and can muffler. I'm getting a killswitch ASAP . Last week I was running with one of my receiver packs I made from a old traxxas pack and one of my solder joints came loose on landing [X(] lucky for me I let off the gas when I hit the jump .

It's called liability and also since they would have to spec a product from the US, I doubt they would want that added cost...I've seen where they spec failsafes on the RTR KM's but they don't do poo if the battery dies. The Super Bee is the best thing out there right now and KillerRC's customer service is great!

the spectrum radios have a built in failsafe mode is that & a return spring on the throttle servo good enough or is an extra kill switch needed?

A kill switch is still needed...a failsafe is only good if there is power...if the battery dies on either the radio or the reciever, you are screwed.

Ive had my battery come unpluged before luckly the kill switch saved the day....
Even had a servo heat up and was very slow to centre, had to use the kill switch to stop it
