    RE: LB Getting Ready for SNOW - Kyosho EP Blizzard DF-300 Thread!


    Got this info from Making Trax... was told that the old EV model does not have the aluminum brace between the chassis..

    That's why I went w/ the DF-300!

    But you can buy the part separately from Kyosho. It is like $11 or something. So you can get the old style body and just add the brace. Just as good!

    RE: LB Getting Ready for SNOW - Kyosho EP Blizzard DF-300 Thread!

    Am I right in assuming that the steering is controled by a brake being applied to one side or the other?

    Yes, brake disc on both side of the diff.. that's how it turns!

    This is going to be a sweet build (or re-build) Will you be running a water proof esc for the snow? Or does the body seal the inside up?

    You can make one for sure.. or if you want, you can order the brace from Kyosho directly...

    Josh, nice GP Blizzard!! How do you like it?!

    RE: LB Getting Ready for SNOW - Kyosho EP Blizzard DF-300 Thread!


    I will balloon my RX (Tamiya balloon, no less, hee hee.. ).. still deciding what to do w/ the ESC yet.. maybe run my LRPs (they are all waterproof..) or just run the TEU-101 for now..

    It is sealed okay, but not great... but in order to make the ESC stop working, you'd need a lot of snow on top of the ESC... (and then it started to melt) So it might not be so hard to make a shield or something..

    We will see! Maybe take the LRP from the M-03M and put the TEU in there instead.. then I don't have to worry about the waterproofing aspect!

    RE: LB Getting Ready for SNOW - Kyosho EP Blizzard DF-300 Thread!

    It obviously has to be a Tamiya balloon, no other would do I'm sure the TEU 101 would be fine under the shell, the only way it will die is if it is completly submersed in water and i couldn't see that much snow/water getting in....

    Do you get much snow where you are?

    RE: LB Getting Ready for SNOW - Kyosho EP Blizzard DF-300 Thread!

    It has been great so far but the stock engine is truly made for inexperienced nitro hobbyist and its really toned down the fun but I plan on swapping out the gsr 11 for an OS CV .12 I have. By todays standards its a slow motor but it won't be over powering and very easy to use. I have modified mine from a 2channel setup to a 3 channel one. Less tranny grinding between forward/reverse




    Just need to put my pullstart stuff on it

    Will you use a stick or pistol grip radio? I'm not sure how a stick would be wired but it seems more natural.

    I use an Airtronics MX3, it drives just like any other rc. Lunchboxer I would rip open your diff and either put a spring or thick grease in it. Stiffer diff tones the steering down and makes it drive better

    Yeah, I plan to open up the diff and run some 100k diff fluid... (and hope it won't leak out..) I do have the RTV (was going to make my TXT diff LSD, remember, ha!) so I can seal the diff if it really leaks...

    It braces where you set the tension on the Chain, if you set it tight and hit some bumps it bends the chassis outwards

    You think the diff is not sealed enough to run 100k fluid?!

    What does that spring set do?! How does it work? It goes between the 2 bevels, right? So it kind of making them hard to turn, hence some limited slip?

    That will have mechaical wear on the gears, no?! (but I guess only wear when turning..) Still... hmm...

    If 100k fluid will leak, I read that Tamiya's AW Grease is sticky enough to create some LSD effect as well..
