    Go for the FlySky. I just replaced my GT3B with a GT3C after the old one finally crapped out. The B was starting to get occasional operating glitches and it would not bind to any receiver. It lead...

    Sweet piece of engineering Tcafb. Whatever possessed you to create this? I'm a big fan of LED lights and I love the digital displays. You must run on smooth surfaces. I"d be worried about the...

    I'm not sure how the two motors you mention would compare in run time or heat. The 3900 kV 4 pole will have more torque than the Castle but will have a lower top speed than the 5700, assuming the...

    Too large a pinion can cause high temps but usually in the motor. Count the teeth on both yours and your son's. If yours is more that could be the issue. But like I said it's weird that the motor...

    I agree with Rusty. Drop the pinion down a tooth or two and see how the temps are. 130 on the ESC isn't bad but 170 on the motor is pushing it.

    That's weird that the motor is cool but the ESC is hot unless motor is pulling far more current than the ESC is designed to put out. I have never had an ESC shut down because of heat without the...

    Yeah, it looks like a firmware problem. I'd return it. I've had an AC6 for several years now. Works like a champ and never has done anything weird.

    But I would recommend getting a Thunder...

    I'm the guy Rob was referring to who bought this charger. I've used it for about a month now, maybe charged 30 bats. I love this thing. Everything Rob said about it is true. Yesterday I charged...

    I'll bet the fluid works fine. Geez...30k weight is closer to grease viscosity than a fluid!

    Yup, cumquat has a good memory. Both of my evaders started out as EXT2's. Both have extensive mods and are brushless.

    The GT3C is an newer version of the GT3B. The biggest difference is the older 3B uses eight AA's so it's quite a bit heavier and it has a poorer display. It's hard to see in the bright sun. The...

    I totally agree with you about the batteries, Nate. I finally switched to NiMH bats. A set will last two full days of racing, if I remember to switch it off between races. Costs less than 1 cent...

    One good reason to get the DTXC 7980 is it won't bend as easily as the thin stock one. I had a hard crash which slightly bent the stock motor mount plate. Never have bent the blue one.

    If you want to convert to brushless it is hard to beat the EZRun 4300kV combo. It's cheap, durable, easy to maintain, comes with a programming card and doubled the speed of my EXT2. We clocked it...

    Really? Duratrax has stopped making the Evader. That's really too bad. Such a fun platform. Glad i still have both of mine. Maybe they'll appreciate over time.

    About the only thing I can think to add is to replace the stock shocks with the Al ones and put about 35 wt oil in them.
