    Smile Im combing back after a year, new account, NEW QUESTIONS!!

    So the last time i was on this forum was about a year ago, and i can say that i missed it like crazy! I sold everything i had except my LiPo's and my Hyperion charger.

    Anyways, i thought you guys might be excited to find out that im coming back with a build! not completely but sorta haha. i just ordered a 4x4 roller off ebay, along with a traxxas link 2.4ghz radio, MAMBA MAX PRO ESC, and a mounting piece for the esc. im hoping i can find a servo lying around, or maybe someone will hook me up with a stock one for like $5. who knows. do you feel the excitement?!?!?!?!?

    Getting onto my question... i want to run a sensored brushless motor. one that handles up to 3s, maybe 4 just incase i get a 4s for fun. i need one that will be fast at the track because i plan on mostly racing this car, in my backyard track (which i need to post pics of) and at local tracks. I wanna be fast though, fast enough to beat KrAzY-BaJa#1!!! i was kind of looking at this one but idk..http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-Tekin-Re...#ht_799wt_1037

    anyways thanks guys and im so glad to be back! ill be sure to post pics once my stuff arrives!

    That motor is not powerful enough for a heavy SC truck

    If Tekin is your thing then try a T8 motor

    Cheers

    I am also thinking about getting the T8! I have the Novak SC 5.5. It have it geared 17/50. On 3s it is nice and quick. On 4s it's a beast! Sensored motors are nice and smooth. Novak has a 4 pole 2650 1/8th scale motor out now! It's about $250 about the same as the Castle 2650.

    What was your old screen name?

    Welcome back Go to your local track and see what they are running Motors, batteries. tires, and lap counter. This way you buy the right things the first time. having our owner transponder is a big + .

    Ace DS1015 works for me

    Savox range is popular and well priced for the specs

    Hitec have just released a waterproof range that look sharp

    You say race at a local track. Each track is different, but a Slash 4x4 on 4S wouldnt be allowed at my track. 2S is your limit in SCT 1/10th scale by me. But just practicing and bashing run whatever you like. Have fun.

    i know 2s is all thats allowed, which is why i have two 2s 5000mah ROAR approved batteries. but my go hard 3s batteries died and im running the goodness out of my 2s. so i want something big and fun.
    and btw sob, i know a bunch of open BMX tracks that are empty most days. HUGE AIR!

    parts are almost here! UPS says my roller will be here on the 23rd, my mamba max pro mounting kit will be here tomorrow along with my 2.4ghz radio,and my mamba max pro ESC should be here Friday. I also ordered 6.5mm bullet connectors for the motor and ESC so i can get the best results from my truck. Other than that all I've been doing is making plans for this truck. I might be borrowing Krazy-SLASH#1's VXL motor until i can buy the Tekin T8 2650kv. once that's done, I'm planning to dye my chassis black, and ditch every blue part on the car, I've grown tired of the blue R/C cars since my past three cars were based around blue parts and bodies. I'm hoping to get STRC red driveshaft, motormount, motorplate, rear hub carriers, front steering knuckles and C-hubs. then ill get some traxxas red tie rods, big bores, SC8 beadlock wheels and a pro-line chevy body. I'm a sucker for anything chevy

    hope to update tomorrow!

    and then i've got a BIG surprise for you guys, hopefully i can keep it from you... i get excited easy haha
