Hydra 120 / Feigao 12XL (1390kv) on 5s2p 18.5 / 10000mah
Starting with a 40mm prop

"Standard" Battery Configurations for Boat Applications

Hi,

I am wondering why boat setups seem to have even numbers of cells. The Nue motor chart (below) is the same. There are 2s, 4s, 6s, 8s, etc, setups. I have two 5s 5,000mah packs. Is there...

RE: HELP, Boat Experts! Need Speedo/Motor & Other Advice

Decided to go milder. This boat is for playing on vacation. It might get an hour or two of use per-year...just want to get somewhat on plane. Thinkin' of going with:

Hydra 120 / Feigao 12XL...

RE: HELP, Boat Experts! Need Speedo/Motor & Other Advice

Thanks for all your help, Ryan.

How about a 1515 2D (about 2000kv) with the Hydra 120?

RE: HELP, Boat Experts! Need Speedo/Motor & Other Advice

OK, nice setup and I love NEU motors. Considering the usage the boat will get (1-2 hours-per-year), it might be a little much...but I might go that route.

If I lower my speed requirement a bit...

RE: HELP, Boat Experts! Need Speedo/Motor & Other Advice

Sounds good. So that's a 1860kv motor on 14.8v, which works out to 27,528 RPM's...is that correct? Any idea how many amps that motor will pull?

RE: HELP, Boat Experts! Need Speedo/Motor & Other Advice

Yes, I plan to run it as-is. Yes, I plan to run on 4s. No budget. I know it will have to be overpowered to get the speed I want. That's OK.

Thanks

HELP, Boat Experts! Need Speedo/Motor & Other Advice

Need some help from somebody who knows:

I built this boat as a kid back in the 70's. I want to make it go again. It used to be nitro, but I'm into electric stuff (just not boats). I'm looking...

RE: Why is the D8 so much cheaper?

I've seen them at the tracks performing well on the track and requiring repairs in the pits.

RE: new look for 2010! Do you like it?

Seriously?
It looks like you used toe-nail clippers to cut out the body.

I used to practice/bash on a friends grass track all the time. I've had a T4 truck and a XXX4 buggy on that track. Surprisingly (to me) the 4wd buggy...

RE: MBX6T or HB D8T?

It is not an exaggeration to suggest the Mugen might finish a few more races in a race season than a D8T. It's not a cut on the D8T either. It's just a very simple trade-off. Do I want to finish 97%...

RE: MBX6T or HB D8T?

Part of this comes down to how much a person is willing to pay to finish a few more races. For the sake of argument, say the D8T means you don't finish 3 or 4 races over a season because of a broken...

Well, verdict is in and it's obvious. An overwhelming majority of the people here fix there own stuff...I didn't expect this thread to be so popular!

Yes, the choices seem pretty obvious except for rotor size. An explanation would be nice.

RE: Are you scared of nitro engines?

I started out with electric and moved to nitro to race with the big-boys. I'm not bad at tuning, but the overall hassle made my relaxing hobby a little bit stressful. Now with the state of 1/8...

RE: Rustler Vs. Stampede

This is funny. Too much talk about "handling." They both handle like complete crap. I've seen SO many guys come to the track with a Rusty or Pede that they say can compete with the "real" stadium...

RE: how to remove stripped screws

If there's red thread-lock, then you'll have to head it up with a small torch or lighter.

RE: Do you do your own repairs or take it to the LHS?

So far, I'm with everyone else here. I don't trust anyone else to fix my stuff.

I think "people who make their own parts" falls in the fix it yourself category. I've manufactured a few parts.

Do you do your own repairs or take it to the LHS?

I've seen a few posts where members comment on the aptitude level of their local hobby shop (LHS) in regard to repairs. I'm curious to know if very many poeple have their repairs done at the LHS.

RE: E revo suspension

You have the right idea. The Revo is a lot tougher than the Maxx. The suspension on the Revo is VERY adjustable. There are several options for pushrods and rockers that will give you the look OR ride...

RE: HELP!! Please Mugen mbx5t

A lot of Mugen drivers have the same problem...I did. Maybe an aftermarket clutch setup is the answer? I don't know and gave up. My Mugen is electric now...and I'm happy.

RE: The Official Traxxas 4wd Slash Thread...

A real 1/8 scale will make a 4x4 Slash look silly. They won't even belong on the same track. No comparison in durability either.

RE: E-Revo or Truggy for Bashing and occasional race

Truggy, for sure. You can find nice prices on older models (MBX5T, 8ight-T 1.0). A buggy is a bad choice for a basher because of the lack of ground clearence (still better than a Rustler, though)....
