Default I got the Gyro Tuned in !!

The Gyro in the Blitz Is on the money.
I can NOW use FULL Throttle 99.5% of the time!
and the nice thing is i can turn it On and Off with Ch3.
I took the Inserts out of the tires and it does ALOT better OnRoad and Off Road
it Grips Everything it can now Every stone and pebble.
and Alot more responsive and handles more like a Real car would
I removed the TOE in the rear its now at 0 lust like a Real SCT or desert truck and eats the tires ALOT less you dont need the TOE in the rear if you think you need it then you NEED to learn how to drive .
Just like my Gyro i dont NEED it but it makes it ALOT more fun.

The Blitz would NEVER do this without the Gyro!
Not under Full throttle. Heck not even half throttle.
im doing this under FULL Throttle !

it just helps you in steering and AWSOME for (Drifting)
you let the Gyro do Most of the Correcting as its ALOT faster than you could Ever be.
it keeps you pointed in one direction for the most part.
you can see in the video when it was turned off a few times on the curve the tail would just come up arround to the front ....
Plus Under Full throttle takeoffs the rear of the truck would slide one or the other direction it will help keep this to a minimum..
Im not saying that the gyro will KEEP you from spinning out will be a 99.9% improvement .

you can get them on Ebay for like $20 or so.(ek2-0704B)
This is the one that i got BUT you will NEED a Third Ch for this one.

you then have to figure out the tuning but thats the fun!

Can you explain to me how it works mechanically ?
Not the gyro, the gyro in relation to the car, what is the gyro connected too, the steering servo ?
Mechanically or electrically ?
I understand its just to assist in steering, how is it wired ?

Good video, well explained cheers.

Full auto pilot is cheating, this is an assistance tool.
You could argue the exact same point you raise, about suspension, or any other part that assists the driver to drive better, right down to wheels being round and not hex !

Would you consider a formula one driver to be a cheat ?
They have power assisted steering and dozens of other electrical devices that assist in driving.

I'd only consider it cheating if every other sissy on the track insisted to run it legally on their vehicle and it was an expensive "option" for me.[&:]
Your talking mutli-million dollar racing, we's talkin r/c homie...

I ran the blue and silver one a couple years ago ( search for a very large thread on here for it) And it indeed did work nice, only problem we found was they did not hold up to the bumps and jumps etc... they would fail eventually. I did like being able to go full speed down the narrowest path without worry of a crash.

this Gyro is filled with Epoxi
so i dont see water or vibration hurting it...
as i have been Jumpen and Crashing with it and sofar it Still works Just fine.
and when i say crash its more like Major Whipeout 40+ at the end of the street turned the wheel to quick and did a barrel roll that fliped it about 10 times and it turned into a cartwheel for like 7 more flips
across the intersection at the end of my street.
it even landed back on its wheels and Drove it back to the house here.
the ONLY damage was 4 BIG cracks in the body.

at the end of this street
this is NOT the crash video i did not have the camera out that day
