RE: NEW!!! Official Traxxas XO-1 1/7 onroad....

I like that this thread is full of people who blatantly don't understand electric power.

But carry on arguing over nothing. It's funny.

Car looks wicked, as Miamiz first post stated right...

RE: FOFF build.

Bodyshell is just to show how big it is, roughly the same size as a 1/10th shortcourse. It will, of course, be run naked. It may sprout some alloy or carbon body panels but they will be purely...

RE: FOFF build.

Roight, so like I said I had a few reservations about the setup of the tranny in the R1 chassis. I ended up cutting the cage to fit it and didn't like the weakness it introduced into the chassis.

RE: Associated 8.2E or the rc8E??

Thunderbirdjunkie, your opinion makes little sense. You say that 1/8th buggy racing is the pinnacle of RC racing, yet shun a method of propulsion that makes them faster and more efficient. And you...

RE: FOFF build.

I'm full of turkey and cheap imported lager, but pushed on with the build today. Sat looking at the tranny for about an hour before deciding to throw caution to the wind and go about it and the cage...

RE: new trucks need help

Shame, the Gambler is an awesome racing chassis. Looks like Venom's inability to get anything to the market in a decent time scale has shot them in the foot again.

Blitz is a great truck. I'd...

RE: FOFF build.

Have a bit more progress to show you folks.

Spaced out the front shock setup properly in it's new position and made up some top links, 50mm rods with gmade rod ends fits niceee. Fitted a Gmade...

RE: FOFF build.

Being stuck in the UK is fine so long as you don't want any decent quality parts.

Stripped the center gearbox in anticipation of some stronger gears and removed the top link mount and links...

FOFF build.

This however will be my first build with a nod to scale touches.

RE: Official ECX Torment Thread

First thing I thought when I saw it was a Slash and a Strike having a baby. To learn Losi have something to do with it was not surprising. I guess they had to do something with all those left over...

RE: High torque 10x10 or any 3+ Axle vehicles

Two long chassis rails, laddered, with 6 suspension mount points. If you want serious off road ability and massive torque I would suggest going live axle. No point going at it half assed, so I would...

RE: HPI decision to make

What is your budget?

The Savage XS would be the best bet. Latest and greatest and apparently tough as all hell.

The Bullet is a nice little machine indeed, if a tad redundent with the...

RE: Associated RC10T4.1 - How strong is the transmission?

And then there is me, who got through a large amount of diff internals/ring gears on a 3s velineon setup in a slash.

The Traxxas tranny is pretty tough, but inconsistently so in my experience....

RE: Does VXL care?

Mostly it's down to bullpoke ratings. A VXL rated at 200 amps continuous may, under ideal conditions, and for a very short time, handle 200 amps. It depends on the quality of batteries you use, the...

RE: Sleepy's T4 Evo

Aye 4 years in the future and technology has moved on. Dump the 2s setup and go 6s with a custom made lightweight 6 cell pack. Use a low KV motor for efficiency and gear it to the moon.

RE: Losi TLR 22 Buggy (Pics)

These are extremely nice looking buggies. Despite the couple of quality control issues you ran into, the kit is vey high end by the looks of it. I too agree with buying the best quality kit for...

RE: Kyosho

Probably worth a bit more than that to a collector. Snap their hand off. Kyosho is pretty much a guarantee of excellent quality, of course it's also a guarantee of parts being a ******* to find.

RE: 24V flux is BAD TO THE BONE

Sorry, but it's probably the most pointless truck I have ever seen. Considering a standard Flux almost never breaks (indeed, the only thing that really breaks on a stock Flux is the drivetrain, which...

Motor absolute limit: 200f after then, the rotor will demag and temps will increase exponentially.
Motor safe range: 0-170f kept below this a motor will have a long and happy life. ...
