    RE: The Official Losi Desert Truck Thread!

    That was definately not true for me. I tried every surface imaginable and the stock rubber was still terrible, while stock. However I agree that brushless does require more finesse on the throttle to...

    RE: The Official Losi Desert Truck Thread!

    I might have to look into those. I agree the stock rubber is pointless. Do you have them on Losi 2.2 rims or are they a little bigger?

    RE: The Official Losi Desert Truck Thread!

    I have an 1/18 EZ Run brushless on my mini-DT w/ a castle cm20 4200kv motor and it flies! I have over 30 runs using 2s lipos on this set up and haven't had a problem, it cost me around 50 dollars US....

    RE: The Official Losi Desert Truck Thread!

    Depending on what you surface you will be running on, you may need at least a different set of rear tires. The stock ones are okay until you switch to BL, then you don't get much grip on most...

    RE: The Official Losi Desert Truck Thread!

    You're probably right, they look very close. I have seen 420 series wheels and tires on some 10 scale ST s and that causes problems. The buggy tires are a lot smaller than I pictured. I'd say give...

    RE: The Official Losi Desert Truck Thread!

    They look good to me. The stock DT tires on brushless are worthless, stock motor they are okay but not in grass. I have pretty good luck with pin/spike style tires as an all-around solution. I would...

    The only problem I see would be the breakage of components due to the increased weight. Hub carriers axles would be broken before too long. I'm sure you could find parts to upgrade or modify it would...

    RE: The Official Losi Desert Truck Thread!

    Great! Sounds like I made a good choice. I will be running 2s Lipos 5200 MaH 20-30C and 30-40C, so they should be able to feed the beast. I want to get a 3s and try it but it may be too much from...

    Well I did it. I posted the ESC and Motor from my new DT on Ebay. I almost ran it once but I wanted to sell the electronics in new condition so I didn't. I ordered the Castle Sidewinder 4600 Kv Motor...
