Ok guys. lets get serious about making a new engine set up.
the guy at my local hobby store said that in order to run 2 1/16 scale vxl motors we will have to run 2 speed controlers and y off the input that go onto the recever. so they both get signal at the same time. We need to save weight as much as we can. This truck is for jumping and racing not truck pulling. I really think a MMM set up would be good but it would wieght so much. The next set-up that comes to mind is the 10th scale vxl kit (dual motors) now that would be the set up!
we have 4" of play on each side of the trans. what can we fit in there?
Edited for language.
i just checked the castles website and the motor is 68mm(2650kv) and 75mm (2200kv) long. thats less then 3". We could fit that couldnt we?
1/8 scale set-up
the speed controler is 2.2" x 1.9" x 1.4" so that would fit.
The Neu-Castle 2650kv Motor (the smaleer of the two)
Max Input Volts: 16.8
Amp Rating*: 120
Weight: 370g (13.1 oz)
Motor Diameter: 39.98mm (1.574016 inches)
41.78mm with fins
Motor Length: 68mm (2.677165 inches)
guys we could almost do dual MMM kits and run 1 4s lipo to each set-up. It would wieght like 3 pounds though.
1/10 scale set up
Size ESC overall:
1.9 x 1.3 x 1.2"
1.4" dia. x 1.7"
2.5 oz (70.9 g)
7.0 oz (198.4g)
Cells 6-12 NiCad/NiMH
Continuous 100 amps
we could run 2 3s lipos (one for each) and this set up would weight 425.2 grams (14.99 oz or .9374LBS) less then the dual monster set up.
this could be cheap though.
I have a mini t with a mamba 8000kv and on a 3s it does 55+. dual mamba 8000kv would be crazy. If you pull in the gas all the way to flips over from a roll. I just really like the water proof thing though. is the 10th scale vxl water proof?
