Imo... Traxxas models are marketed mostly toward beginner/entry level hobbyists. They are best to use as bashers. But not the best to use as bashers if that makes sense. Its been several years since...

Getting back into the hobby- Rebuilding a CRT.5

So I've been out of the hobby for a few years. I solds off all my cars, truggy and buggys. I kept just one. It is an old Ofna Jammin' CRT.5. I always felt this little truggy was underrated when it...

Backa few years ago I blew up my share of both Tekin and Castle systems! Of course over gearing and running the crap out of my stuff might have had somthing to do with it!

RE: Nitro vs Electric

there is probablly a point on a track where too much power would be a deterant. I'm not a racer so I don't know where that point would be. Electrics though would benifit from more wieght. I bet if...

RE: Nitro vs Electric

These threads are pointless. Both nitro and electric have their place. Some people still run nitro and have alot of fun with it and other preffer electric. Just leave it at that. It is all about...

RE: Mugen MBX7

They are unsupported here locally, but finding part online is easy. Even for the MBX5. But these Mugens are tanks and you won't need to order many parts anyway!

RE: My new buggy!

Nice buggy! The 8ights are nice. If you run 20% in everything else it would make sense to just run 20% in this one too just for simplicity. But running 30% won't hurt it at all. You don't need to...

RE: What are some must have rc's.

RE: Back in the hobby. I want a good BL Truggy.

That's a great deal for that truggy! Even if you deicide to only run 4s I would still recommend upgrading to a 150 amp ESC or 120 amp at a minimum. I believe you will be pressing your luck with that...

RE: Back in the hobby. I want a good BL Truggy.

There are lots of very good truggy kits available but very few of them are brushless. But you can get conversion kits for themfor a brushless swap. This is probably the way to go for what you want....
