    RE: RC8BE

    That motor is gonna be overkill, but I'm sure you can tame it down a bit. I wouldn't go out and get another motor. As far as what to get, it's a little tough to do without narrowing things down a...

    RE: Body for GS Storm

    Parma makes a universal buggy body. The Storm is not listed as compatible, but I'm sure with some fiddling, it would most likely work.

    RE: Rockslide Supercrawler 1\8th (Weights?)

    1)Wheel weights lower your center of gravity. I've used the lead fishing "noodles" that come in 5 lb bundles or whatever, but the plumbing solder would probably allow you to put more winds around...

    RE: RedCat Sumo for a 6yr old?

    You might want to consider a Losi micro crawler (I personally like the Trekker) just for parts support unless the local shop carries a decent amount of RedCat parts.

    RE: scale crawler suggestions?!

    The two options for around $200 are the Losi 1/24 Trekker at about $150 and the Venom Creeper Safari @ around $230

    RE: anyone seen a front mount motor scx10?

    I can only see moving the motor if you're replacing the tranny with a transfer case and using a GRU on the motor. I don't think moving the motor makes it look any more scale since you've still got...

    Take into account local parts support unless you plan on getting parts strictly on-line. Also see what other guys are running at the track. It doesn't hurt to run what's popular at the track. Then...

    RE: fast help plz, hpi battery compatibility?

    If that truck uses the EN-1 ESC like it says on HPI's website, the maximum input voltage is 8.4V, so 9.6 is a no-go.

    RE: What brand buggy is this?

    That is definitely an OFNA model. Looks like an Ultra GT LX or a variation of that.

    RE: What to go with

    If you're not competing, I find the scale stuff (Axial SCX10) to be quite a bit of fun for backyard bashing. But in the end, you gotta get what appeals to you. If you like the 1/8 Super Class...

    RE: Strongest axles?

    Sounds to me like all you need is an 1/8 buggy. But if you wanna do straight axles, look into Kyosho Mad Force axles. They're bigger, but you can narrow them if needed and they use 1/8 scale...

    RE: Toe inout settings?

    At such slow speeds, toe-in/ out doesn't do a thing for a crawler. How sharp you can turn is ultimately limited by the steering range of the knuckles. Ackermann angle is probably more important...

    RE: Toe inout settings?

    Toe settings are only useful in high speed applications. Toe-in helps the vehicle track straight, toe-out helps turn-in. On a rock crawler, all it does is effect your endpoint settings on the radio...

    RE: E-RC8B or E-Kyosho Inferno?

    If the Kyosho you are referring to is the MP9E, I personally couldn't justify spending almost twice what the RC8B costs. It certainly isn't twice as good as the RC8. I say go with Associated.

    What kind of battery to plan on running? Voltage makes a significant difference in the top speed. If you can run a 3S lipo, that 35T motor is quite speedy. I would definitely stick with the FXR...

    RE: Rockslide Dual battery voltage?

    Your ESC will most likely be what goes up in smoke if you double the voltage (batteries in series); unless the ESC is designed to handle 14V.
