RE: Boat noob with a Mini Cat Velocity (help with setup)

I moved some electronics around last night and got the boat evened out more even though it's still not perfect. Also swapped over to some tygon line I had from my Baja to use for the water lines....

RE: Unofficial

RE: Unofficial

Well here's my maiden voyage with my modded NQD. I'm not to impressed with the top speed but I think I have a few things working against me. I can not for the life of me get my HK 40A ESC to...

RE: Can't get HobbyKing 40A ESC to calibrate?

Just messed with it again and got it working by messing with throttle trim afterward. It won't save the settings though? If I unplug it and then plug it back in nothing happens. I have to recalibrate.

RE: Unofficial

Hey guys,

Was just curious. What are you doing to remove the motor when you swap out to a brushless one? Are you pulling the complete jet drive out to get to the motor mount screws or are you...

RE: 3905 Center Diff in an older E-maxx transmission?

That's what I'm hoping for. I could always cut out another chassis to fit the 3905 tranny but that's a lot of work and time.

RE: 3905 Center Diff in an older E-maxx transmission?

Nope, no crawling with this one. I did a custom chassis and braces for this one. Just wanted a fast basher that would hold it's own at the track. Can't keep the front end down right now without...

Well has anyone done it? I have an older E-maxx that I'd like to install a center diff in. The easier option would be fitting the newer 3905 center diff into the older E-maxx tranny I have. At first...

Wow smokarete's boat is wicked! I'm curious how it will run when it's finished.

Doesn't cavitation have to do with vapors forming in liquids while under pressure or something like that? From a prop or turbine or something accelerating the liquid? Aeriation is simply when air is...
