    HSP 1/8th Scale Crawler

    Hi,
    Not seen too much of this crawler, its labelled the HSP here in UK.
    Mine arrived today - wow! - its HUGE !!!!

    Its got twin RS540 Heavy Duty motors, most of the chassis is metal.
    And came with a 2 stick controller - that is going to take some getting used to after the pistol grips.

    Anyone else got one and has any advice.
    I am new to crawling so any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Drew

    RE: HSP 1/8th Scale Crawler

    Ok, managed to get some video of the crawler.

    Really like this big monster.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RSiok9feaCg


    Also took some pictures of the sump guards and stuff.
    Think I may add rear wheel steering, all the parts are there already, just need a sero, mounting plate and steering arm.

    Also need to soften the tyres - they are not flattening enough.

    good luck with that...still think on that money you could get a ax10 or something...it's a nice replica, with not so nice price...and the tires looks like are not from rubber at all...[]

    I thought the price was pretty good, dual motors, loads of metal parts, and cheaper than the AX10. £161.99 delivered.

    The tyres are very soft, and can be flatten by hand, just need to remove some foam, have read that people cut the foam in to a star shape.
    So need to try this - also soften out the shocks, and that seemed to help.

    I am still very pleased with this and think it is good for the money.

    Just need to find somewhere that has spares....

    RE: HSP 1/8th Scale Crawler

    Had a slight problem over the weekend, the gearbox cracked.


    Managed to make a repair using hot glue, there is plenty of space in side to build up re-enforcement.


    Filled as much as I could inside, there is room, and put some around the outside, just to be safe.


    Had 2 test runs around the garden, doing my course, and its holding up well.

    In the mean time, the supplier has been brilliant, I contacted them asking about spares, and they are to carry the full list,
    With it being a new model, they are still waiting for them to arrive.

    As soon as the parts are here, they are going to ship them to me, am going to add rear wheel steering while I am at it, to increase the turning circle.

    Still think this is fantastic value for money.

    The AX10 RTR is £195 here, and the ARTR is not much less.... (£185)
    Then add the cost of the receiver, servos, motor etc to the ARTR price and you are way beyond - I looked.

    My rig is RTR, with twin motors, all electrics, just charge the supplied 2000mah battery and away....

    For the ARTR, with recommended gear would exceed £350....

    That, I still say is very good value... and as notatoy says - its 1/8th scale.

    What is wrong with having several different crawlers?

    I have a XTM X-Crawler, AX10, AX10 Scaler, Losi MRC and another AX10 Scaler that I am building.

    By comparison, we learn which are better - so I agree

    Still think the HSP Crawler is my favourite.

    RE: HSP 1/8th Scale Crawler

    Is it all plastic? It seems odd that the gearbox broke just days after you received it. I have been to about 12 comps and countless practice sessions with my ax-10 and so far no breakage. These runs included several 6 feet + falls onto rock...

    Also if you think the 1/8 scale is big check this one out.. Killer Crawler

    It's a 1/5 scale crawler. Look at the motors on the axles to really get how big this thing is.

    Wow, that looks brilliant, and out of my price range...

    Like all the metal parts.

    And have you seen the price?????

    Blimey, that is expensive - and its just the rolling chassis... [X(]
    And does not include wheels and tyres...

    Do like the design though.

    Makes my 1/8th look like a real bargain to me.

    Now that is HUGE!

    Nice rig mate - look forward to seeing a video of it in action.

    What lower suspension arms have you got on there?
    They look like the AX10 Scorpion design.

    I want some of the alloy ones like the Gmade Spider has, but cant find them for sale on their own.
    They have the shocks connected to the arms.

    Cheers, thanks for the picture.

    You have done a brillian job of making that crawler - bows -

    I have the 169mm AX10 suspension arms, which are the correct length, but may not be thick enough.
    And would have to add a support mount for the shocks.
