Default Titan playing in the mud at Milestone Raceway

Here is a video of my Titan playing in the mud at Milestone Raceway. I didn’t get to play that long as my air filter didn’t particularly care for all that water. Enjoy.

Impressive job on the suspension setup, that's articulating superbly over the bumps. In that slow mo you did before the roll, it was very evident, the car just floats over the bumps. Can I ask what oils and spacers, etc you are running?

And above all, I bet you were the only one that COULD run on that day in those conditions. 4wd ftw.

Thanks Foxy. I am using black springs in the front and rear ([link]http://www.fgsupply.com/Hurricane_C5_Titan-Front_springs_Hurricane_Titan_Black_1.html[/link], [link]http://www.fgsupply.com/Hurricane_C5_Titan-Front_springs_Hurricane_Titan_Black.html[/link]) and I am using Associate 2000w diff in all four shocks. The rear shocks have no spacers and on the front I am using three spacers, one wide and two thin. I have actually upgraded to an all alloy arm set up and this, I believe has helped the suspension tremendously. All I changed were the plastic arms to alloy and I noticed a remarkable improvement.

badboy2, you can get parts for the Titan on line, there are several US based sites that carry replacement parts. However, I doubt you will find them in your local hobby shop. Parts for the HPI Baja should be easier to come by as most well stock hobby shops should carry some parts for it. Hop ups for the Titan are just starting to become available here in the US and the Baja has a huge aftermarket here in the US. I can’t really compare the Titan to the HPI Baja because I don’t own the Baja, never driven a Baja, and only recently ever seen it in action, in person that is. From the videos I have seen they seem like really nice durable buggies, they have a huge following and most people seem to like them immensely. Don’t hesitate to get into 5th scale, just do your research and you will find the right car for you. The only thing you will regret is why you waited so long to give it a try.
