What parts did you break? Was it the ESC or servo or motor or something that should last - or was it another part like the hubs/a-arms/shock-mounts that are consumables? Hopefully parts support will...

If you take one of your existing ones to a hardware or plumbing store I'm sure they can find you a match: it's a generic rubber oring. Or you can do what I did: cut a strip of duct tape a few mm wide...

2.2" MT rims didn't fit for me on the Caldera: the bottom of the A-arms where the hubs mount is too wide to fit in the rim. If you want MT rims look for anything 2.8" fits on the Stampede 4x4 (or...

RE: How to increase more speed in my caldera 10e?

The Caldera is limited in the size of pinion you can use: I'd say go up in KV instead: though you're already running on 3s and the Caldera isn't really designed for land speed records :). Once you...

RE: *Official* Caldera 10E Video, Picture And Discussion Thread

If you took one of your rubber orings to a hardware or plumbing store I'm sure they could find a match. They're only holding in the pins: I wrapped a thin strip of gorilla tape around mine (duct tape...

RE: any redcats Roar Legal

It's funny you mention that: 1/8th buggy and 1/10th SCT have the same wheelbase... so the Aftershock could have almost been 1/10th. But the chassis with the length they needed was designed to fit two...

I think something with a hint of the military would sell well: even if it's not green or camo: (gets away from the vanilla dunebuggy vibe of other manufacturers):

Excellent, thanks for all the pictures! The URCguys (http://www.ultimaterc.com/forums/showthread.php?t=162244&amp;page=9) are also starved for detailed Mirage pics like yours if you want to share.

RE: Caldera 10E wheel lock nut

The regular Caldera uses M4 locknuts (BS903-093) and the SC uses M5 nuts (BS808-003). Locknuts from other manufacturers will be interchangeable so search your local store for "M4 locknut" or "M5...
