You asked for cool obsticles, and you live on a farm. I thought that cow pies would be a good obsticle, you don't want to hit one of those!

Default RE: Tips for a mountaneer

hi i'll give you some help first of all is it the tamiya mauntinear you are on a about i have one but no way go with brushless it'l be way to fast and you will blow you r three speed box with it what i recomend is a graupner 600bb will give you mountrous torque(the most ever cause it comes out of a rc plane but will fit in you truck)second fit some bigger springs to increase ground claearance and replace those leaf springs with some softer ones or similar then fit some truck pull tyres which also are much bigger than the stock 2.2's but will fit on 2.2 rims and then you will pretty much have the ultimate crawler for things to drive it over i suggest some wood blocks into some kind of steps its good to strart on these

umm if the 600bb has monstrous torque it would blow the gears out too. Unless the brushless has more torque. Can you get different ring and pinion gears for the tamiya axles? just a thought i doubt anyone makes them

Zeroc, have you tried www.rc4wd.com ? I've had good luck with his lift kit, steering mods and 14mm hex hub adapters.
