    Tamiya Bullhead rebuild and electronics install.

    OK so im starting this project, I already have an esc that I can run dual motors with. A high torque servo and other bits and pieces.
    It's gonna be a nice project and hope to have pictures up in the next few days.
    I plan on doing a clean install and direct soldering the motors to the esc. ESC has a deans end on it already.
    The esc im using is a LRP quantum Competition 2. It handles motors down to 5 turns brushed, so it should handle dual motors fine.
    Radio im installing is a cheap radio that I have left over from my E-firestorm.

    It will look better with the body on it. I chose HPI Firebolt motors being 15T they do have a bit of power.
    I bet it will go 25-30mph with Lipo. Right now with my nimh packs it might go 15-20MPH. For a heavy truck thats pretty fast.

    If you're planning on restoring it, Tamiya is re-releasing it soon so parts should become easier and cheaper to find.
