    RE: Testing My RedCat Earthquake 8e



    i got this in two parts as the first part like a dumb fool i only had a 1 gig card in my camera so this video is short .

    [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XnG-YH4-1Xg[/youtube]

    a slow down video

    [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=erGrfuVZZuI[/youtube]



    and the secont one is about 17 minutes.



    [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U4ekWCs0oVA[/youtube]











    it looks like its sitting odd cause a rock was caut under the left rear swing arm .





    plus i have found Why it drifts to one side .....
    as the front comes off the ground the front tires start ballooning but thay Dont balloon at the same rate so as the front lifts off the ground one of the tires is still in contact with the ground pulling it that direction.

    the esc in there is sealed like crap, dont go through puddles, or youll kill it Belive me, I did the same thing and killed mine in less water, Ooh hey also if you didnt, i would check your diffs, they usuallly need to be shimmed from the factory, or they will strip out in like 2-3 batterys, they are fun little buggers though

    your thinking of the Older Version 1 of the truck and "some" but few Version 2's needed shimm's .
    but there is no longer anay of that old stock on the shelves as thay are now past Version 4 of the earthquake 8e.
    you no longer need to doshimming .

    the diff's hold up good .
    i have run this truck every day from the day i got it and just did a COMPLETE teardown and inspectionthe night before lastand everything is still like new.
    and i have run at least 35 sets of batteries in it and you see how i run it if you watch the videos.

    Mine is 100% Waterproof.

    "Ooh" hey also did you see this ?
    [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XnG-YH4-1Xg[/youtube]

    this is the esc after 1 run to make shure it was working perfectly
    and the first day i got it.






    and This is the ESC AFTER Waterproofing






    I used Epoxi to waterproof it.



    Trust me it IS 100% waterproof as ALL my trucks are.

    RE: Testing My RedCat Earthquake 8e

    Ahh, I see, I figured Id give you a heads up, Mine which I just ordered several months ago I ended up shimming the diffs, because they lasted me 3 batteries, and shredded the diffs, redcat sent me free replacements though so I cant really complain. Did you have to use a special epoxy to water proof it or could I just use some of that 5min stuff?
