Well howdy fellas!
I've recently sent a series of questions to the Traxxas Customer Service folks, but they recommended that some of my questions would be best answered by the online community.
So here we go.....
I bought a Traxxas Nitro Sport back in the day before the pro .15 engine was factory equipment for it, and I never really had any complaints about its performance, nor any of Traxxas' other nitro rc's and my experience goes back a good ways as you can see.....however, I did have some complaints about the last Traxxas car I bought. The electric Rustler to be exact. It was advertised at 24+mph but even with a seven cell back, and change in spur and pinion gears, not to mention the trinity motor I put in it, (it should be taken into account that with the trinity motor, I sacrificed a bit of accelleration, but gained a noticable top speed increase) the stadium truck never delivered more than
I put a great deal of time, and money and effort into that rc truck, but never achieved the performance that I wanted, or even expected; (and I'm in no way bashing Traxxas as their nitro rc's have never failed me, and I have every confidence that they are a rock solid manufacturer).
I don't know why the little truck never reached it's promoted potential, but it was fun while I had it none the less.
I am however, not a rich man, and I want to get the biggest BANG for my $. So I turn to you good people in search of help, and answers to these queries:
1. I was very interested in purchasing an electric 4-tec, but will it really do the 24+mph it's advertised at, and what's the best way to insure that it does?
2. What are the best hop ups to get optimum top end speed out of it?
3. How can I get it Velinion Brushless compatible, and what kind of performance is that likely to yield?
4. Is the 4-tec a worthy car of upgrading, or should I look elsewhere in the Traxxas factory?
Thank you all for your time and attention.
