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

I have the entire velinion system in my caldera 10e. I didn't have to remove or modify anything with the motor. I have experimented with several pinion gears to modify the gear ratio. You can get...

RE: Changing gear ratios in Caldera 10e?

RE: Changing gear ratios in Caldera 10e?

I ordered several pinions from Redcat (they are relatively cheap) with various number of teeth 15-21. I am going to try different combinations and see what happens. The Velineon motor as per traxxas...

RE: HPI Mini Recon

guessing its due to the pro-pulse being a buggy, and like most buggies they sit lower to the ground, and the front shocks are generally shorter

RE: HPI Mini Recon

Just picked up a set of the aluminum shocks as the stock ones didn't make it too long. Got the megapro/pro-pulse kit from rchobbyexplosion. The shocks in the kit are different lengths. 2 shorter ones...

RE: Changing gear ratios in Caldera 10e?

Changing the gear ratio allows me to modify the speed. If I am stuck with the redcat spur gear 51T and the redcat pinion 13T, I don't have any flexibility. I am really looking to change my gear ratio...

Changing gear ratios in Caldera 10e?

Modified this post. I am looking for spur and pinion gear options for the Caldera. I am looking for a lower gear ratio than the almost 4 that the stock setup provides. Any suggestions? Thanks.

RE: caldera 10e tires

From a prior post, halfway down, it states that the 2.2 rears from a stampede will fit as the offset is correct. Not sure of other 2.2's that will fit?

RE: caldera 10e bodies

I believe most 1/10 truck bodies will fit. You will need to drill the holes. Also, because the Caldera is a little bit longer than most 1/10 trucks the wheel wells don't line up exactly, but it's...

RE: caldera 10e tires

The rims are 2.8 stock. 2.2 will fit. The hubs are 12mm hex. Any of those combinations should work.

RE: Twister XB Pro

If you are using 2s Lipo batteries, I have mineset to LVC of 3.0V, some people do 3.2V. If you are using NIMH, you don't need LVC protection.

Here is the link for the ESC manual just in case.

RE: What is the name of the connector they put on the new Redcats

The new redcats come with 4.0 mm Bannana style plugs for the battery to ESC connection. I have had good luck getting batteries from hobbypartz.com, though I know you can get them almost anywhere.

RE: New tires for Caldera 10e?

I put a set of Stampeded talons on my Caldera. I actually thought that the traction was less. The stampede tires are wider so they gave the truck more stability.

The stampede talon tires wont...

RE: caldera 10e up grade motor

RE: caldera 10e up grade motor

Which VXL system are you referring to? Also, I noticed that the VXL Esc doesn't have a cooling fan, should one be installed? Thanks.
