Oh boy... All the parts came in today, I got that Hobbyfans 60A ESC, and the Turnigy Trackstar 3900kv 380-with-fins motors. Installed it, and apparently it doesn't like 3S power. Ran it for maybe 5...

Alright, got everything in today, installed the motor, and it only runs in reverse and has low torque at that. Why?!?!? I'm this close to throwing this car out the window right now.. Is it the speed...

Oh boy.. I just took a chance on this (http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idProduct=72275).. I couldn't for the life of me find a 3.175/3.2mm pinion that wasn't in china, so I...

I had a Redcat Caldera with one of those 380's with fins on it, and it pulled it along pretty good, so I figure it should be good enough for a 2wd buggy, right? I'll have to take a look at those IR...

The car's a Redcat Twister xb, the pinion gear has 23 teeth, the spur has 77. I'm running Proline Dirt Hawg's, I believe they're 2.2". They're a bit larger than stock. As you can tell by the...

El Cheapo Motors and Soldering

I've decided it's time to replace the fried motor for my 2wd buggy. It's a Leopard Hobbies 3900~ish Kv, and it was blazingly fast on 3S..for the 1st run, then the next time I ran it, it had about 1/2...

But where's the fun in that? :D That's probably a much better idea than stuffing the 3S in there though. It's amazing how powerful these things are. You get up to the speed the Nimh got it to, and...

Much, much faster than the stock Nimh. I have a little trouble fitting it in, it's pretty tight. Might get my Roto-zip out and shave down some plastic in the battery tray. Just...

Going Lipo

Okay, I'm taking the plunge into the magical world o' lipos. I've already got the charger, a $40 knock-off Imax b6. I'm looking at the zippy compact lipos, specifically the 4000mah 2S, and a 2700 or...

Aha! I loosened the screws you mentioned, and BAM! The binding is gone. I think the clicking is from the driveshafts bouncing back and forth in the drive cups. I'm glad that fixed the problem,...

Binding Differential

Had my Redcat Twister XB out today, and after a few minutes heard some 'clicking' from it. You couldn't feel/hear it when you rolled it by hand. I thought that it might have been the pinion/spur...

That's awesome! I would love to see some pics of the setup. Is it just a servo or something lifting the blade?

Well... I didn't get either. Mostly because I was just looking for a cheap brushless/Lipo setup. I don't have any Lipo chargers or batteries, and until I got the Brushless motor/esc, and Lipo setup,...

RE: Beginner to RC Airplanes.

What do you think about the Great Planes PT-40 Kit? With it being a kit, it would allow me to buy things as I go, so I wouldn't have to lay out $300 at one time. What other tools would I need to buy...

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

I'm going to upgrade to lipos, but I know practically nothing about them, other than the MaH is how much runtime you get. I see the imax b6 charger copy for $16, is there a difference between this...

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

I can't seem to find any 8.4v batteries that fit, what did you use? Also, I'm looking to get a good body for it. Does Proline make any that fit the Caldera?
