    RE: What's a good RC Basher for $250?

    I agree and also forgot about the Thunder Tiger. It's an Associated B3 chassis so it's based on a proven design. Although, nitrosportsandrunner seems to partially regret getting his. Not sure what...

    Cool new Tamiya kit

    I'm amused by it and think it's one of the cooler "wheely" series vehicles I've seen.

    Until April 19th, the EXO RTR is $299.

    RE: thunder tiger phoenix XB review

    Welcome to the 2WD Buggy class. Keep it up and this car will hone your driving skills as you learn to react to how it moves. Drive this for a while then try a 4wd SC truck; it's a night and day...

    Use it as you see fit. The concept is that some braking force is applied without you having to move your throttle finger past neutral which saves time because you're ready to pull the trigger again....

    RE: Just got a Used Traxxas Summit?

    The earlier versions of the EVX2 ESCdon't have LiPo cut-off. Look above the EZ set button for very small print that reads "Low Voltage Detection." IF yours doesn't have this then your ESC is an...

    This question is like arguing with gear-heads over who makes the better engine, truck, muscle car or whatever: Dodge, Chevy or Ford. In the end, is there a true winner? You can say that Tekin, Orion...

    It's hard to say about that servo because I'm unsure of the specs of the Leopard ESC. I use a SC1267-TG on a Team Orion ESC without an external BEC and Ihave never experienced glitching. If the...

    RE: motor kv question stampede castle

    What was the air temperature when you drove the truck?

    If the motor stays that cool then you can go back to your stock gearing. However, 16/87 may be a good place to start for 3S.

    RE: Cheap MRP Ripper ST

    Ok, you're talking about gear ratios. Since you've been using 17/87, try a pinion with more than 20 teeth. If you only run on the street then you can try to go as tall as 30/72; or somewhere close to...

    RE: Cheap MRP Ripper ST

    The gear pitch is 48-pitch, which is pretty much standard for 1/10 vehicles. Are you asking for gear sizes?

    Also, the other problem you're having is probably your slipper clutch. Test it when the...
