OFNA, as a brand, is dead. But HOBAO is most certainly NOT dead! And they make great cars. NitroHouse.com carries them. The Hyper TT truggy is my favorite. The Hyper SCT short course truck shares...

You'll need to have four identical motors and ESCs running off one receiver. For such a heavy load, I'd chose motors in the low 3000s or high 2000s in the KV rating. Better torque. Ooh...forgot...

I'd recommend a Hobbywing EZrun combo. I run this system (http://www.hobbypartz.com/ezrun-35a-9t-3650-motor.html) in my Evader. It's perfect. With 21/88 gearing, it'll do almost 40mph, and on asphalt...

So that part is the "hex" that fits into the wheel? Not sure I understand what you're asking. If that part is indeed the bit that fits into the wheel to drive it, as opposed to the standard 12mm or...

Certainly, the vehicle weight is a factor to consider when gearing. Note that it says in that sticky post that the given calculations are for 1/10 scale vehicles. Another factor is the physical...

+1 on that.
Good choice of battery. I've found Gens Ace to be the best value and consistent quality.

I hope you have T-Bone Racing bumpers installed front and rear. You know the Evader has been discontinued, right? So parts are becoming scarce. I'd think twice about making a speed demon out of a...

The hard part is finding wheels with the right offset. That is to say, how deep in the wheel is the hub? Too deep and the suspension parts will interfere with the wheel. RPM Talonz or Slingshots I...

Stock, it's a 21 tooth pinion. If memory serves. Dieharder is right. Grass is hard on the stock motor. Get an infrared thermometer to monitor your motor temps. Gear to keep temps under 170f. You...

Well, it so happened that both my buddy and I had a set of Gladiators that were well worn. We slapped those on the Hyper TT and ran 6 or 7 packs. The tires held up quite well on the dry track. And...

Hmm, the ol' Badlands. Yeah. Or for that matter, Dirt Hawgs. At least those come in Medium compound. Big blocks would probably last longer than any kind of pin, a la Gladiators or Hole Shots. That...

Ah yes, forgot to state what kind of vehicle... 4wd 10th scale truggy, and a 4wd short course truck. Thanks for the suggestions.
