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

Do traxxas 32p pinions fit on the tacon 5mm shaft?

If not What 32p pinions fit?

Is the tacon that much...

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

Anyone know if a 80a or 120a would be an upgrade for the caldera within the stock motor?


Just wondering which motor would work well with it.

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

It was a direct hit at 50mph(top speed run on 3s & 16t pinion) and it recoiled to the side after impact.

IMO I doubt any other vehicle would have survived without similar damage.
