Here's my buggy with a brushless Novak GTB/4.5R system. I've run it a few times with 7 cells. Very fast, but I can't keep the stock plastic diffs from stripping, even with the slipper clutch I installed. Anyone know of any parts or mods I can perform to upgrade the diffs?

It's an Academy SP3. Anyone [X(]know where I can buy parts for this? I need a slide-bar and also the body post extenders (this is a tall body and the bodyposts dont reach the roof of the car.

Collector,

Nice, very nice Griffin Pro. I'm working up an 'arm drop' Griffin now. Got a few 'Pro" parts on it. I bought the car used at a Korea hobby shop when I was there with the Army back in 1998. Check out 'My Models' and Blog on this website. I'll post up images once I get 'er finished.

TC1,

Agree, very interesting. Yongsan, Seoul for me. 2 year accompanied tour. Korea is where I got started RCing.

I like your Wyvern too. I almost bought one myself. Love the buggy body it had. In fact, I boughtthe body and still have it. Got the Wyvern sticker sheet too. Love that dragon! It's the only RC body I've come across that has a belly pan bottom piece as well as upper shell. Even kept the Korean Academy plastic sales bag. I'm kinda hanging onto it for a Warhammer 40KRC project I want to do someday.

I need to re-look the Academy line. If this arm-drop Griffin works out like I think it will, I may upgrade with one of their newer buggys. But I really like how simple and straight-forward the Griffin is. Ideal platform for mods.

Regards,

Work is progressing well on the Griffin. I had to work with the images to get them to look decent, but here they are. Almost RTR. It's officially ahr43 Project OFB (One Fast Buggy). I prefer to call it my Academy Black Widow Buggy.

[edit 3/29/2010 added two images; one scale wt 53oz; the other, view looking down on the chassis and electronics. Test run today. Slipper full lock down. 40% throttle EPA. 60% steering EPA. Runs out good on the small circle we live on. Acceleration is down a little. Between slipper action and high gearing it should be. O.K. though. I'm sure the 10x2 brush motor torques the diff gear more than it likes anyway. Can't wait to ease open the throttleon the high school parking lot.//end edit]

So, this is my STR 4 Pro-II with aXcelorin3.5t (9120kv) Sensored brushless and a Integy 2s 4000mah lipo. Not quite a buggy like alot of the others but still a lot of fun.
