I noticed you have the body cut out around the engine. I have been thinking about doing that with my landslide so that I can start it with the body on. The only thing I am worried about is how that will effect the bouncing of the body. I have a camera that I put on the roof of it and the body shakes a good bit already because I broke a body post. Does the body shake anymore with it cut?

Go with landslide shocks. They're freakin beefy as hell and a lit sturdier. I got 8 stock shocks if ya want them R/C. One set is all aluminum. I'm gonna buy more Landslide shocks and keep em on hand.

And thats so sick 7m, how much of that thing is still redcat?
I guess im safe to say my Volcano is made up of a plethora of parts from different companies. The suspension, gearbox, and wheels are from HPI. The shocks are from duratrax. The driveaxles and exhaust are from Team Losi. The engine is from Ofna. And the gas tank is from Kyosho.

The chassis itself is still Redcat though

Nicely done, you sure saved yourself a lot time that's for sure. But nothing beats ingenuity.

Ignore what others say about spending hundreds of dollars to get it to run reliably. I've steered clear of that argument for quite some time.

Just to set the record straight:

The plastic gears are NOT a quality control issue (that's been an argument on RCU). They melt because those of us who have modified our engines cause more heat to develop inside the gear cover. Since the heat has nowhere to go, enough heat builds up and melts the C/D gears. Steel gears are on the way, that issue should definitely be a thing of the past. The steel gears will probably remain an "upgrade"part.

All the upgrades that were able to be purchased as an "all in one" package is now already installed on all V2's, thats right! -

The above pic shows what is included. I have a 27cc engine, with the DDM Dominator pipe and have yet to have a reason to even install the "upgraded" diff parts. My V1 is pretty stout and durable, I can only imagine the V2's stepping it up one more notch.

Needless to say, my buggy was worth every penny I spent on it. I put down a few more bucks for HPI baja hubs only cuz I wanted to be able to use the available Baja tires, there is a little bit of a variety available, and they are easier to find at hobby shops... should I need to pick up a pair on the spot!

I'm gonna say this, and I know i'm gonna have something happen now, but it's been about a year since I bought mine. I have YET to break 1 part. *knock on wood*lol

Kryptonite, you have to click "post reply". "fast reply" doesn't have the link to upload attachments. After you click "post reply", there is a link below the text box you type in that says "Click here to upload images and files!" (for some reason it made a link instead of text lol)

Damn that makes me seriously consider selling some cars to get a 1/5th scale. They are so sick.
