  2. RE: Comparison thread again...Newest T-Maxx 3.3 vs. 2012 Losi Aftershock Limited Edition

    Well, just ran across an almost new savage x 4.6 with all the accessories in original box for $325...  Looks pretty clean, less than a gallon of fuel through it.  What do you think Herrsavage? 
  3. RE: Comparison thread again...Newest T-Maxx 3.3 vs. 2012 Losi Aftershock Limited Edition

    I hear you, but it has been called roll over prone more than once. Thank you again for your answer, I'll keep it as a 3rd option.

    Now, lets get back to the Aftershock LE and the T Maxx 3.3, any...
  4. RE: Has anyone switched SH.18 to OS .18 in any Redcat? Or any other .18 for that matter?

    I would be carful.  IMO the engine is the best part of any redcat.  The stock drivetrain can not hold up to the stock SH engine, I would not add more power, it will shred the rest of the car/truck...
  5. RE: Comparison thread again...Newest T-Maxx 3.3 vs. 2012 Losi Aftershock Limited Edition

    Thanks herrsavage. You are correct, cost is a factor. I don't want to come off nearly $700 bucks for an rc car. I have many other hobbies, which include full size power boats, water fowl hunting and...

    RE: tornado S30 help...I broke something?

    RE: tornado S30 help...I broke something?

    Do I have to remove the top plate to get the tranny out?  I think the center of the main gear in there is what is broken.  I can see a random peice of black plastic loose in the trans.  Is there a...

    RE: tornado S30 help...I broke something?

    I don't think it has a slipper, it does have a "two way drive clutch" in the tranny. That may be the issue. I have not started disassembling yet, but I noticed that all grub screws are tight. I am...

    RE: tornado S30 help...I broke something?

    It's not bogging down at all, it seems it will rev higher now than ever before, like there is zero resistance on it.  Same as if you were to rev the heck out of it while it's sitting on a block with...

    After a little research, I think I figured this out. The 1/16 slash tires are smaller than the fronts on the Tornado. I wasn't sure since I have not seen a mini slash in person. Still wondering about...
