RE: My XL - Whats next?

you could get some of the big bore shocks from a savage flux or the nice aluminum upgrade ones that hpi sells.

another good upgrade would be a brushless conversion for much more power and...

RE: Savage Flux - alternative to Deans?

i've always used deans for everything and they are more than capable of handling almost any 1/8 brushless setup. even in my very amp hungry overgeared truggy, the deans plugs don't even get more than...

RE: HPI/Castle Tork Motor question.

the lst is very big truck and the 2200kv torq is bigger and will run cooler. that 2650 will not last if you gear for anything over 30mph. the 2200 will most likely run cool up to 45mph.

RE: Spektrum DX3 (not 3.0) or Airtronics MX-3

i have a mx-3 (FM) i would be willing to part with. PM me if interested. it works like new. the only flaw is the word "t-maxx" written in sharpie on the top of the battery compartment.

RE: Savage Flux Diff Problems

a higher weight oil will also slow down the internal gears, further reducing heat.

RE: Savage Flux Diff Problems

just get a new diff case and be sure to lube up the gears nicely with the grease. if you can, try getting an extra tube or use some automotive grease along with the grease it comes with. i'm guessing...

RE: brushless Emaxx or savage flux?

the diffs in the e-maxx are weaker than even the old savage flux diff gears. i've seen even the new e-maxxs bust diffs on brushed power. there is no reason not to get the flux in this scenario. i...

RE: Running Lipos in Parallel

yes, it would work. you would need 7 parallel adapters. 40c seems a little excessive for that much battery, regardless of what you plan to tun them in. if you are talking about the hobbycity packs,...

RE: Savage Nitro to Brushless Conversion

i recommend you use at least an 18t pinion gear. the flux gearing is the same as 1st gear in the nitro tranny and top speed will be pretty low with that 12t. are you planning on running 4s or 6s?

RE: are the SMC 9000mah 2s packs any good?

i've seen a pair puff in a savage flux with stock gearing and tires during a mild run. i've also seen a pack puff in a slash with the mamba max 4600kv setup. all 3 of the packs were the 28c+ 6000mah...

RE: Rustler VXL with SPC Lipo?

try the hobbycity lipos. a 5000mah lipo will typically run 30% longer than a 5000mah ni-mh due to efficiency and much lower voltage drop. so, a 5000mah lipo is like a 8000mah ni-mh.

a 2s lipo...

RE: Which lipo to get?

you will be best off with either the 40c flightmax pack, or the 35c turnigy pack. i have a few flightmax packs and a turnigy pack (all 5000s) and i can't complain about either. there's one small...
