    Worlds fastest off road buggy

    I'm just guessing but I can pull the front end up at speed and it 4 wheel drive. here is the kicker. it's 1/5 scale!

    Here is what makes it tick. Motor is a SSS5694 1200 kv and the esc is a 300 amp 8s piece that I bought factoy direct for just over a hundred bucks shipped. http://www.fliermodel.com/en/index.asp
    Hor Racing has this motor for 99.00 plus 22.00 air shipping. So as you can see I'm cheap! Try to keep up her as I'm sharing 30 years of being this way.


    this esc just came in as a upgrade and is a little bigger than the one you will se in the buggy.

    The pair ok batteries are 4s running in series. That makes it a 8s buggy. and yes I know that makes this motor run at over 35000 RPMs. But if you look at the specs at horracing.com you will see that this motor eats it up!
    Here is another chassis that is a 1.5 inches longer. I will be building a truck with it using the HPI baja truck body.

    Other 1/5 scales that I play with.

    This shows my 42" Catamaran on top of the 56" that I'm building as we speak.

    you will not believe how good the service is. I can only say that if you use them with out a middle man. So if you are not dealing with Cathy then your doing it wrong. She is there sales rep. I use them in My big boat as well. I will buy bigger esc's when I start my 72" build that will happen latter in the year. I plan on buying another 350 amp esc for the truck build I will be building this spring.

    RE: Worlds fastest off road buggy

    I havn't seen it yet. I do know that the Losi weighs about 8 to 10 LBS more that mine. My wheel bearings are bigger and so if he hits me I could be in real trouble.
