RE: Duratrax Evader Bushless servo question

Not to thread jack, but I just purchased a brushless evader as well. Moving my hop-ups from my old nitro evader to it.

Will be racing the evader at my local track along with a DXR8-E. Also...

RE: Savage 2350 or Thunder Tiger MT4??

I can't help but think this is a troll post when I see stuff like this.

If you're asking a serious question, why not tell us what you're looking for in a monster truck, and we'll go from there.

RE: HELP: First Nitro RC Car

Bottom line, you'll be fine with any of the 3. I've also ran all 3 many times - here's my thoughts:

Engine tuning: That F4.6 on the savage seems to be the easiest to tune. You can also have...

Quick Question on a particular Glow Plug

Hello,

Has anyone used the following plug before on the F4.6? I purchased 6; want feedback on anyone's experience running this exact plug on 30%. If you haven't tried it, please don't comment...

RE: Any good entry level 2.4Ghz radios??

Yeah, I deal with the same thing when flying gliders with a club. I guess I get lucky though, for some reason I never get anyone on my channel. I personally don't plan to go 2.4 for awhile. All...

RE: Any good entry level 2.4Ghz radios??

I'll probably get flamed for this, but here it goes.

You don't need 2.4ghz. I've been running FM on my trucks and planes for about 8 years. Certainly not as long as other people, but I don't...

RE: Rant - Sorry :/

I'm sure you will get your money, just allow the process to flow.

I honestly think this is a step in the right direction. It's almost always the buyers that are getting ripped off.

RE: Help tuning!! Duratrax's Overdrive ST

No, that's not typical of Revo's; they're very very durable trucks.

You just had a fluke; replace it with an OEM part and keep going.

BTW - If you're on your 6th tank and already bashing...

RE: RT-X 27 only 200 bones?!

Let me just caveat your purchase by saying, don't let your experience of this truck (if it's bad) to get you out of the hobby. My first truck (a duratrax) nearly did.. it was not good.. then the...

RE: RT-X 27 only 200 bones?!

You can't tell me that you didn't have constant issues with your rear shock tower and differential on your nitro evader. I would break the shock tower every other jump where the truck landed...

RE: My hobby shop story!

I have no problems giving almost all my business to my local LHS. Of course due to convenience it doesn't always happen that way, but they've always been great. It's a local HobbyTown USA, about 20...

RE: Born-again beginner car?

No, I am completely serious! Look around! The manufactures themselves have even been quoted saying this. You can read it in RC magazines, and you can walk out to any track and see it. An editor...

RE: Born-again beginner car?

First of all, I own a Nitro Evader, and you do not want a nitro evader. I will argue this to my deathbed with any current Nitro Evader owner; there are countless better trucks out there for the...

RE: Anyone Own a RT-X 27?

You've got it backwards. Larger tires will decrease torque to the ground, but because the diameter is larger, they cover more ground per revolution, thus a higher top speed. This of course assumes...

RE: Anyone Own a RT-X 27?

If you want to beat a savage (especially the Savage X 4.6), the axial .32 isn't going to do it. That engine just doesn't rev high enough. It only puts out a little more power than the stock 4.6 in...

RE: Engine Dies with even the slightest blip of throttle

Personally, I would stick with the Kwik-Start. Get yourself a larger capacity battery (3000+) along with a charger that can charge at a 1c rate (in that case, 3 amps - It will 100% charge in 1...

RE: Engine Dies with even the slightest blip of throttle

This is true, but I usually don't recommend adjusting the LSN first to anyone new to RC. They usually have their hands full just getting the HSN figured out. The truck should run well enough for...

RE: Alittle help with engine tuning plz.

Start by setting both needles to stock. From there, start leaning the HSN by 1/8 turn at a time. Once the HSN is tuned, move on to the LSN. Note: most new nitro users get too carried away with the...

RE: jumping out of gear

Not sure; isn't that the truck that has the option to put it in neutral? I think I read that in the RC Driver review. If that's the case, I have zero experience with trucks that have a neutral...

RE: Engine Dies with even the slightest blip of throttle

This is because the stock settings are very rich. Go ahead and let the truck idle through it's first tank. On the second, start to slowly lean out the high-speed needle. Do not do any adjustments...

RE: jumbo kong tires

I have to say, those tires make the truck a "MONSTER TRUCK." Looking at that makes me want to take it and start smashing some 1/16 rc cars (just got back from a monster jam last weekend lol). I...

RE: LRP Engines - Any thoughts?

Admittedly, I only read the universal reference to "LRP Engines" in the subject line and your second post in this thread.

RE: LRP Engines - Any thoughts?

I hate to be so blunt, but there are COUNTLESS threads on this board that involves people with savages using LRP engines in their Savages.

The answer is "Yes" and "It's a very good choice."

RE: how many amps can the duratrax ice charger handle

For a quick, cheap, and very reliable solution, I picked up an old computer power supply and converted it to 12v power supply. It puts out 17A continuous @ 12v and just cost me about $20 (parts from...
