Wrong.


It will go 50+ on 3S with stock gearing and 3S I think. That's plenty fast for this platform.


Yeah, it's not designed for 6S. It's double the top power this was designed for. If you...

Might be best to go the OTHER way: Sell your two Savage Fluxes for parts on ebay and put those funds toward the MT410 or whatever. There are people out there who love them and are wanting to...

What did you end up with, oldblue?

I just got a TRX4 Bronco and I love it. I splashed out for the light kit and it looks the business.

I had an SCX10 (original) and it was not impressive. The...

The only RC I've had where stuff had to be tightened was a Tamiya Brat. Front suspension fell apart. I remember reading in the assembly instructions it specifically said not to use thread lock. I was...

I don't really like your tone. It's like you're giving a command instead of asking for help, and you're not really open to the safe answer if it goes against your current plan. (bolded, above)

Trust me, you DON'T want more speed and power. With a couple of 3S packs in this and geared up for pavement, it will do 70 mph, which is ridiculously fast. Off-road, you can't reasonably go that...

What do you mean by: "it started skipping"? It sounds like maybe you stripped the spur gear or something in the gearing loosened up. Check that before you...

If I had a Golden Arrow, I'd save it as a shelf queen, as it will never be a great runner. Sell it some day.
