I have been out of the hobby for about 5 or 6 years. My neighbor got a new Redcat Monsoon XTE and was bashing it around so I was bitten by the bug again. I have always owned nitro cars, and trucks never any electrics. So my knowledge is very limited. I decided to go with an electric just for less maintenance. Anyway I took delivery of a new Shredder XT i purchased from www.redcatracingshop.com
I was like a darn kid all over again. It is funny how RC vehicles can turn grown men into kids hahaha. I did all the necessary standard RC stuff while the batteries charged yesterday. Checked all the nuts, bolts, and screws for tightness. I actually had a few loose ones. So it is good I took the time to do it.
I want to upgrade the motor and ESC. Anyone have any recommendations? This truck is plenty fast in stock form but I know I will get use to the speed and want more.
Next question is what kind of lipo charger is everyone using? I would like one that could charge up to 4 batteries at a time.
Are they are inherant problems with the truck I should look at and fix right away?
I took it out for it's maiden voyage and for $400.00 shipped to your door for the size and fun factor so far. I wont complain about a few problems with it.
Thanks in advance guys for the answers.
