RE: Official DB-01 Durga Thread

It's been a week since you posted, but I just saw it now. I think the kit came with a 17T pinion to use with the stock 540 motor, so I'd probably start out somewhere around there for the Sport Tune....

RE: Official DB-01 Durga Thread

I think the sport tune should be fine, geared appropriately. You're obviously going to see a performance reduction, but your driveline parts should last longer;). I sold my DB-01 to fund the...

Ran my (daughter's) LB some more, does much better in the lawn than the Grasshopper, to no one's surprise. I did not get around to swapping the 380 motor in yet, need to see if the pinion will work....

RE: Return of Lunchbox..

Yeah what the heck, I'll give it a try when I get a chance. Of course, I have ulterior motives......our club's track is hosting a vintage race next month, and the 'hopper will need the 540 for that...

RE: Return of Lunchbox..

Just thinking here, has anyone put a 380 motor (as in, from a Grasshopper) on an LB to slow it down a bit? I know it will fit with the adapter, and it will probably lose the ability to wheelie. ...

RE: losi 1/24 scale sct 4wd lipo batts

I can't find a link for which Losi battery you are referring to, but I think I know where part of the inflated price comes from. If it is configured the same as the 180mah and 300mah 2S batteries...

RE: Anyone with a mini slash run revo a-arms?

I did too. It was fun, but like Dale said, it was too fast and light. I sold it to go back to 1/10 scale. Here's a picture from the ad when I sold it:

Despite having owned r/c cars all the way back to 1987, the Slash spec class at my local class was what got me into actual racing. Despite what many people think, there is definite merit to running...

RE: Return of Lunchbox..

Given the same voltage, a higher 'C' rating, coupled with higher capacity, means the battery CAN put out more power, not that it always will. If you have a car setup that draws 100 amps and a...
