    No problem. The hobby is more fun when you share knowledge and helping to prevent others from making the same frustrating mistakes you have. The tires in the pics are Traxxas Talons and they're...

    For someone new to the hobby you are doing a very well thought out and correct conversion. There is one area of concern and that is the gearing. One thing of note is that once you start going over...

    Dedicated drift cars have the motor mounted up front to add more weight to the front. This adds steering response even though the front tires are spinning when drifting. But when you mount grip...

    I can't think of a more accurate way to get the body to scale than that! Thanks for the idea, one less excuse for not building a couple projects in my head.

    I cannot recall if the a Titan has the same diffs as the Dominator or not. Since you're building it you might as well take the little bit of extra time and make sure they're shimmed properly. A...

    The 5700kv on 3s will have more power by virtue of the higher voltage. More power means it will pull higher gearing. Have you done any gearing calculations? I ended up with a 1/12 pan car and even...

    Vaterra has had the similar Twin Hammers for awhile now and I remember seeing a few EXO's with solid rear axles being built. I guess Axial decided they needed to fill the void. Looks like they did a...

    I have no idea what you mean by "driver under". Torsion bar suspension huh? They're not exactly known for having lots of travel but there's no reason why it couldn't be done, should be interesting....

    I've actually found you the perfect setup. Best of all it requires no switches and no servo. Basic automotive relays for fog lights and such usually have a 30amp rating (higher is available) as well...

    How about 1 servo with 2 switches? Switch 1 is on the negative wire between the esc and the motor. Switch 2 shorts the negative wire to the positive wire. With the servo in position A, switch 1 is...

    Nah I don't race, don't have the time. I've messed around an the track with the 8ight's and it's great fun. My stuff has the diffs and shocks tuned for the yard and street mostly, but they do pretty...

    Lol! I was surprised to see all the replies until I saw the date and realized the thread's age! BTW the Halix from what I've read on other forums the Halix seems like a pretty durable and quick...

    Also since you said you're kind of a noob with 1/8 buggies, be sure to check the diffs on those buggies. Make sure they're shimmed good with the least slop possible as brushless 1/8 is quite a bit of...

    You postulate an interesting theory with matching the esc closer to the actual current draw. I think the only way to prove the theory (right or wrong) is by knowing how the firmware is written. But...

    Dig is when you have front wheel drive only and the rear wheels are usually locked. When in dig and you apply power with the wheels turned, the vehicle will turn pretty much in it's own length. In...

    You're right about the linkage between the servo horn and the steering, that's why I mentioned the servo horn needing to be aligned as well. Even though you can get away without subtrim I personally...

    I get what you're saying and know yo understand subtrim function. I disagree though and think when used right subtrim is invaluable. I think what you've said might confuse some people who don't truly...

    Well I was more or less curious as to how you "scroll" through the functions. Can you use 2 buttons to scroll through the functions, so that you can scroll forward and backward? Example, you're in...

    Oops I'm late. It is actually pretty cool, would've been a little cooler with the radio in the shot showing you switch between the functions. The radio that comes with the RedCat Ground Pounder...

    That Castle combo is also very good but as nitro said earlier the 3000-4000kv is a little more ideal than the 5700kv. The 5700kv will definitely be fine in the Rustler, there's plenty of gearing...

    SCT truck wheelbase and width matches up pretty well to Monster Truck bodies so that's the route I'd go. Stadium is going to too short and possibly not wide enough. I'd stay with the 12mm hex and...

    The 12T 550 is equal to about 15T in 540 size. Esc's are rated in turns for a 540 motor. The XL-1 is rated for 4-7 cells NiMh and motors with 17t or more. So yes you can use the 8.4 7 cell battery...
