    Radar testing-Gens Ace vs Maxamps vs ***** vs Losi

    Back to the good old Rustler forum! Testing all different brand 2s's and a 3s in my FLM/RPM Rustler. Things got a little outta hand with the 3s http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G1jEphRVKiY

    So far I've gotten 68 MPH with the MMP/3800kv motor with a Gens Ace 3s running 28/83 gearing. I have 1 - "C" battery taped on the front bumper to keep the front end down. I switched to 32p gears since I have a bunch of Slash 4x4 pinions and spurs which will give me more options. I'm going for 75 MPH after work.

    Mounting your RPM bumper upside down will get rid of some of the lift.

    I was able to get up to 70 mph tonight but the front starts to pick up, I'll need more weight and/or some body modifications. I was geared 21/54 with the MMP/3800kv combo, 3s, with Proline Short Course Street Fighters tires.
