    RE: tamiya tamtech gb01 ?

    Stock motor is slow and stock suspension is very bouncy. Compact but bigger than the typical 1/18 mini. Drives similar to a 1/10 stadium truck with lots of understeer or push. Stock form keep it...

    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

    I don't think those HPI shafts are titanium...I think they are just steel with a titanium-nitride coating to resist scratches and reduce resistance.

    RE: Lexan Body Stitching

    When I cut out a clear body shell I save all the trimming. When you get a crack you use the Lexan trimming as backing and use the Shoe Goo adhesive so you end up with a very strong repair no matter...

    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

    Personally I like the way the Blitz drives and handles jumps a lot better than the E-Firestorm, and a lot of that has to do with the longer chassis and better weight distribution. So if it were me I...

    This is the Pro-Line Short Wheelbase Baja Bug body. On the Pro-Line website you can find it under the Monster Truck category.

    2S Hardcase LiPos. I've got 5000 20C Reedy and 5000 25C Yeah Racing.

    Pinion is still the stock 19T, which is really pushing it especially with those Pro-Line Gladiator tires which are heavier...

    I used an HPI Blitz Rear Brace and Rear Skid to give me some added protection for the motor. I've run the TBR rear bumber but have broken them three times! No experience with their wheelie bar...

    RE: XTM rail, is it good.

    Looks like a nice basher buggy. Really like the chassis and cage.

    I'm actually pretty thrilled to see 1/8 scale buggy paddle tires..those haven't been available for a long time! If anything I...

    RE: HPI Blitz brushless upgrade ?

    That's what I run in the Blitz...though Castle would prefer you use a Mamba Max or MMPro with the 4600 or 5700 though in a 1/10 SC. I think for the track the 4600 is the better choice; 5700 is way...

    RE: Slash 4x4 or E-Maxx 3905

    A pretty good question, actually.

    RE: HPI Mini Trophy Truck. Official Videos!

    I'm thinking the SC trucks sacrificed a small amount of realism for better driveability. I think that is fine though, makes for great racing on the track. Looks like HPI didn't make that compromise...

    RE: ESAVAGE Brushless Conversion

    E-Savage is never going to be as strong as a Savage Flux, so it is definately worth looking at the cost to go brushless on an E-Savage you already have vs picking up a Savage Flux.

    I think it looks great. I was never much a fan of the Stadium Truck style body. With these Proline bug bodies, you can definately get a more realistic scale looking r/c on a stadium truck platform....

    RE: Tires for Tamtech Frog?

    RE: FINALLY! The Hyper SCT 10 pics!!!

    Now that you do have the truck in-hand, does it appear similar in durability to a 1/8 buggy or is a bit lighter-duty?

    RE: HPI Blitz motor options

    From what I have seen on the track, 2S LiPo or 7 cell NiMH does wake-up the motor.

    I do agree though that the Firebolt 15T is a bit weak on 6 cell NiMH. I ran my E-irestorm that way for a few...

    RE: E-maxx or E-savage

    Sidewinder 4600 is an excellent setup for a Blitz. Gear it up for bashing, gear it down for racing.

    E-Savage is a heavy truck. You'll need a 1/8 motor and at minimum a Mamba Max Pro or 80 Amp...

    RE: Official E-FIRESTORM thread

    I'll back red up on this. I ran 5700 on a big 1/8 track and never used all the motor. The 5700 is nice for bashing when you have the space to open it up.
