    a few of the more expensive redcats can make good racers...but the sub $300, NOPE. I mean, can you get it around a track quick, sure. But can you race it, NO. While things like wheels and tires...

    slow+fast. do not try to drive fast, try to drive consistently.

    at my track, you may run 6 races in a night...each race being 5 minutes long. My 2s 5000mah packs can give me 1/2 runtimes. I...

    yep, clones are never as good. but 70% as good for 50% the cost works for me. If I had $300-$400 to spend id go with a axial for sure. but i have run the redcat rs10 crawlers for a couple years...

    yep, the caldera.

    question, is that a 2s or a 3s pack in the truck? I highly recommend sticking with a 2s pack. On 2s the caldera holds up pretty well. use a 3s, and expect to be replacing...

    ive felt the same way about the Tamiya CC-01 chassis. a cool, fairly scale full chassis...but has a gap between the body and fenders (with some bodies can be more than 1/4 inch)

    But as stated,...

    you may have issues other than speed.
    the 540 motor (refers to size of the motor) is larger in and should also draw more amps. doing so may exceed the amount of amps the ESC can provide.

    I think the 2 or 3 RC magazines have a track listing (usually near the back)

    But to me, a drone is a flying RC with FPV capability. That capability...

    adjusting the slipper will lesson the load on the transmission. just don't get it too loose, as this will cause it to heat up and wear out faster than it should.
