Yeah I'd say that's well beyond a Summit haha. Only downside is losing it to water/theft! But that's a pretty awesome rover!

Yup I mentioned the upgrades in my post. ;) Brushless motor and ESC, and running 2s 4000mAh lipo usually, sometimes 4s for speed.

The way the diff lock switch works is: OFF -> Front -> Front &...

RE: LiPo battery expanding when in use. Normal?

I would not run a lipo like that. Just not worth risking a fire at worse, and losing your RC. Just wait a little for new batteries.

As mentioned DO NOT THROW them in the trash - go to your...

RE: Best upgrades/hop-ups for E-Maxx 3905

The only parts I upgraded on my older model E-maxx were the rear aluminum bulkhead pieces, but left the plastic shock tower on (rather have IT break than transfer the stress down to something...

RE: wireless cam on walker bull dog

2.4Ghz and 5.8Ghz don't penetrate solid objects well like old school FM, or for that matter 1.2 or 900 Mhz, given the same wattage of the system. It may be why you are suffering extra noise in your...

RE: Dedicated PC/Wii tank gaming

World of Tanks, free to play, 3D game, great graphics. 15 vs 15 battles. Company / Clan battles for the competitive people. That said, make sure your PC has a decent graphics card, at least a nvidia...

RE: ParkZone Slo-V Review

Just checking in with this thread. Wow I just spent almost 45 minutes reading all my my old posts from 4-5 years ago. I've moved forward with a few more bigger better/different planes (Radian, EDFs)...

RE: Same charger, bigger battery

I hate to throw hobbyking at you, but that site, or hobbypartz locally, will sell you a lipo/Nimh charger and power supply for $50-$60 and that will be a much better investment if you plan on being...

RE: Rustler Transmission

I have an older Rusty and Bandit (black plastic). They use the same Magnum 272 tranny. I have transplanted the tranny from my Rusty into an ebay Slash roller and have been using it for over a year...

RE: Dual Battery Bandit VXL

Nimh will not give you the performance you are looking for unless they are top notch. I have already tested 12 Nimh cells (DTX and something else) that ran great as 6 cells but as 12 in my truck they...

RE: Ezrun short course esc

ROFL. I think most of us do understand that the cheap stuff is cheap for a reason. It is built to lower specs often or just not as high quality in components, and as such I would rather pay $10-$15...

RE: Gear Ratio Clarity Question

To answer your question it doesn't matter which combo you use to reach close to the recommended gear ratio. It's just mechanical advantage. It is about the same thing as long as you're only off by...

RE: Summit with Rx8 or Savage Flux

Summit. In stock form it's plenty powerful enough to crawl around, plus the 775 motor and ESC are water resistant. I know, I've had it swim in 1 ft of water where the tires were used as...

RE: new to the brushless era and need some help

Just get the 60A version and you'll be fine. I run a cheapy 60A in my Slash on 3s and it has not given me issues. End of story.

RE: What will be the next major improvement in the RC Hobby

That is exactly what I'm talking about. I read about how people buy a kit, then for 20 years they're literally piecing it together (ok not all, just a random person here and there). And then they...

RE: What will be the next major improvement in the RC Hobby

Hah I love when the build-it-or-go-home elitists start to pop up. I don't have the skill nor patience to build a balsa plane from scratch (or plans whatever). However, I do have a love of flying R/C....

RE: whats so good about 2.4 ghz?!?!?!?

Crappy radio? So I guess my Futaba 2PL FM is a crappy radio that I paid $90 for along with its receiver. That's about $10-$20 less than I paid for my 2.4 Ghz Futaba T3PM.

No. In my case, when...

RE: whats so good about 2.4 ghz?!?!?!?

Just because you haven't experienced glitching with 75 mhz FM doesn't mean it doesn't happen to others. Again, it helped me and other folks here who have stated its benefits over FM

RE: Novak vs Castle (motors)

For 3S you can use the 80A Xerun for $90.

BTW, the only reason you would get better runtime on 2s is if you don't over gear it. Most like you will get reduced runtime if you run the 2s...

RE: whats so good about 2.4 ghz?!?!?!?

Yeah, I don't think it's necessary to switch over if you don't have any issues in your application. For most who need a new radio, they seem to be buying the newer tech, 2.4 GHz. For those who...

RE: Novak vs Castle (motors)

They both should have enough torque. However, in my experience and many others on here, the Castle 5700 motor will most likely heat up trying to over gear it.
Also, from my experience, the Novak...

RE: whats so good about 2.4 ghz?!?!?!?

Hmm, so apparently a 2.4 Ghz radio not glitching where 75 Mhz FM would glitch, is not better performance in TBJ's book? If that is TBJ's logic, then there is no point in attempting to clarify...

RE: 180 sized motor?

I can't say I've seen any 180 motors that are round. If I understand you correctly, you are looking for the 180 sized motor that has a round can, instead of the flattened top and bottom? I think most...
