I'm annoying myself with the amount of threads I am creating to showcase work, progress, videos etc... so I'm hoping I'll be allowed this thread to keep it organized and the main page clear of this so more questions can be seen and tackled.
Here's a bunch of random clips showing on-road, off-road, crawling, speed passes, a front flip, and what my combo (MMP + Team Orion) sounds like when the sensor falls out of the ESC. I thought I broke it, turns out it was just... unplugged phew!!
My system is:
Batteries: Traxxas 25c 2200mah 2s LiPo
Motor: Team Orion VST Pro Mofidied 9.5T Sensored Brushless
ESC: Castle 1:10 MMP (Mamba Max Pro)
Suspension: Summit purple springs rear, merv tan springs in the front, on Integy piggy backs running 100wt oil.
Wheels/Tires: Stock, HPI Monster SS with Proline Speedhawgs, Summit Wheels with Summit Canyon AT rubber.
RPM Bumpers and A-Arms, Traxxas aluminum tie-rods, stock toe-links.
Traxxas Wheeliebar and hopup - red- wheelie bar wheels.
Custom rear chassis brace, front chassis brace.
I've built a custom "flipper" for the car for when it's flipped far from me, but I'm currently waiting for a part to come back in stock before I get that all running again. The link is Here
When I dyed the chassis black, I left it in for 25 mins after taking the water from a boiling pot and putting it in a typical "car-wash bucket." I also dyed all the black parts on the car in the same dye to try and help match the colours as best I could.
I only use one battery at a time, there is no different in performance with two in parallel, and to run in series would be a waste as my car is already too fast for itself. The batteries are capable of outputting more then the motor can draw.
I've made 15 threads over the past few months but here's basically my system as it stands today:
A big thank-you to everyone on this forum! When first signed up a few months ago I read back almost every thread to about 85pages worth of history! I learned SO MUCH in so little time, and like to think I "know everything" but everyday I'm learning something new from everyones knowledge and experiences! I'm very greatful to all of you, and here's lookin' forward to a summer of fun with this truck!
