RE: Help with front Hydro brake set-up!

Yes, that is what I said if you checked again. The 5645 would be overkill and that is what I would go with personally. As for the differences between the 5645 and the 645, looks can be deceiving. ...

RE: Help with front Hydro brake set-up!

I am currently using front and rear hydros. I use a Hitec 5945 for the Throttle/Rear Hydro Brake and a Hitec 5645 for the Front Hydros.

Hydros require significantly less torque because the...

RE: Servos - what's hot and why?

Mad Wax, try the Hitec 5945. Lots of torque for your throttle, rear brakes and front cable brakes. You can hook up all of them the the 5945 and still not use the servos full potential.

I use...

RE: Servos - what's hot and why?

By the way, there are two things I do when determining the proper EPA.

1) I immediately set it to 90% so that I ensure that it is far enough from 100%.

2) On my MT, I use the alloy Travel...

RE: Servos - what's hot and why?

Most modern radios have an End Point Adjustment or EPA. Its a setting that allows you to limit how far the servo can turn in both directions. If you allow the servo to extent 100% you run the risk...

RE: Servos - what's hot and why?

I personally use the Hitec 5745 for steering. I've set the EPA to 90% and never looked back. Most problems with servos in general are user related. Case in point, I had a Hitec 5945 for my...

But I can't talk, because I have the FG Catalog and I did that a few days ago :D.

RE: 2 minite silence

The thing is that I had two relatives spared on Thursday. My sister in law was supposed to travel on one of those trains that day but she chose not to go to work. My cousin drives one of those...

RE: Is a filter on starter housing a good idea?

I suggest you do get a filter to cover the pullstart housing. Your motor looks less like a Zenoah 260 and more like Swamp Thing! :D

RE: Best batteries

You can customize your own pack at cheapbatterypacks.com. I just got a 5 cell GP3700 pack with a deans connector for charging, a male hitec for the receiver and a female hitec to hook up a battery...

RE: MT-5 gotta haves???

No, he means that another guy named Mike at FG Performance RC has sold his business to a guy named Troy in Minnesota. The other Mike at RCNUTS is still at RCNUTS.

RE: Need help installing FG's foam inserts in my Monster tires?

Just fold those buggers in half (until they look like a quiznos sub :) toasty!) and then just jam them in. When they are in, just open them up, slowly fixing the foam along the groove of the tire. ...

RE: MT-5 gotta haves???

Are you guys setting your EPA's when you run the 5745? Because the only time I ever had a problem with a hitec digi servo is when I ran my 5945 as my throttle/brake and fried it when the failsafe...

RE: Rear brakes

I have not fitted the radio tray to my MT as yet (haven't had the time). However, I contacted KCR, KPD and FGPerformanceRc and they all have told me that it works fine with the MT. In fact, King...

RE: 4wd for the fg

How efficient do you guys think these conversions will be when the truck/buggy is doing cartwheels and end over end flips? That is, how durable do these things look? I have always been a fan and...

RE: Steel Gear ?

It all depends on what type of terrain you are driving on. If you have lots of little debris, some would suggest to leave the gear cover off, to prevent the small pieces from accumulating. If you...

RE: MT-5 gotta haves???

Well, my MT is pure alloy. I am not one of those guys that spend thousands on alloy to simply go and trash it. I am not bashing my MT at all. I just like looking at all that Alloy while I drive it...

RE: MT-5 gotta haves???

Oh yeah, MMR makes a pretty good pre-filter bag if you drive in very dusty and debris laden areas.

RE: MT-5 gotta haves???

Fourwheeler,

The first step IMO would be:

1) Bulletproof your drive train. Steel Spur and Pinion Gears, Diff Conversion #8484, and if you want some diff risers or Elcon/Krikke Alloy Diff...

Hopefully, the pack is still good. I would check to see what warranty work can be done.

RE: Steel Gear ?

The Alloy Gear Carriers and the Steel Gears work great. Make sure you have the Steel Pinion to go along with it. It if is set up properly (a good threadlocker put on, and liined up right) it should...

RE: Battery Charger Problems?

You need to stop using it immediately. If it is smoking then something is fried, and where there is smoke there will be fire sooner or later. If you still have the charger in stock form (tamiya...

NeoMB,

I have the 959 charger as well, and many times (especially when charging multiple packs) it has gotten very hot and smelled like the electronics were burning along with the plastic case. ...

RE: Thanks!

Yes, this forum has more "mature" members (is that better Selwa? :D). I think it helps that most if not all of us have families and jobs. Thats why you find that the posts are not who's truck/buggy...
